The band promise a "totally new audio-visual production" of their 1998 album
Massive Attack have announced that they will tour a “totally new audio-visual production” of their 1998 album Mezzanine across Europe and America early next year.
According to a press release, “The show will re-imagine Mezzanine 21 years on from its release using custom audio reconstructed from the original samples and influences”. Cocteau Twins’ Elizabeth Fraser, who sang lead vocals on “Teardrop”, will appear live with the band at all dates.
“It’s going to be a one-off piece of work; our own personalised nostalgia nightmare head trip,” adds the band’s Robert Del Naja.
