Massive Attack Postpone Mezzanine XXI North American Tour Dates
Monday, March 11 in Montreal was expected to be the first date on Massive Attack's hotly anticipated Mezzanine XXI Tour of North America, but unfortunately "due to illness," the fans will have to wait. More details will be provided on March 14 regarding the postponement.
The tour was originally expected to close on April 2 in San Diego, but now all venues will be rescheduled in the fall. "All current tickets will be valid for the new dates," Massive Attack said on Facebook. "The band are deeply sorry for any inconvenience and are looking forward to bringing the show to the USA and Canada soon."
Released in 1998, the album Mezzanine represented a return to the spotlight for Massive Attack. Their trip-hop blend of grooves was and is contagious, and in the '90s the hip-hop and sound-collage potential of dance DJ-ing revealed a potential that has since become mainstream. However frustrating the delay, fans are sending best wishes for a return to health and are planning to catch Massive Attack's trip-hop grooves this fall.
