Massive Attack announce 2010 tour dates – 2 NYC shows w/ Martina Topley-Bird!
Massive Attack will tour North America for the first time since 2006 in support of their newly released 5th studio album 'Heligoland.' The North American trek will start May 7th at Sound Academy in Toronto, ON and wrap May 30th at the Sasquatch Festival in George, WA. They will play 2 shows in NYC, Los Angeles and San Francisco with general on sale beginning March 5th (full schedule below).
Massive Attack play NYC on May 11th and 12th at Terminal 5. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 5th. Martina Topley-Bird, who is featured on two tracks of their great new album Heligoland, is opening both shows (and presumably singing with the headliner as well) (and probably opening the whole tour).
Heligoland came out in the US February 9th on EMI's Virgin Records. Its other guests include Damon Albarn, Mazzy Star's Hope Sandoval, Elbow's Guy Garvey and TV on the Radio's Tunde Adebimpe.
Btw, if you plan on seeing them at Sasquatch you better hurry and get a ticket.
