You may recall that trip-hop icons Massive Attack released the Ritual Sprit EP back in January which featured a collaboration with their old bandmate Tricky. For those who found that exciting, Massive Attack have announced that Tricky will be joining them for some of the shows. The only confirmed one so far is BST in London's Hyde Park on July 1, an all-day festival that includes performances by Young Fathers, Patti Smith and her band, TV on the Radio, Warpaint and Ghostpoet. I'd bet money, though, on Tricky joining Massive Attack at their September 7 show at The Downs in their hometown of Bristol (Primal Scream and Skepta play that one too).
Stay tuned for more info, and all Massive Attack dates (all in the UK/EU unfortunately) are listed, along with videos for Massive Attack / Tricky songs "Take it There" and "Karmacoma," below.
