Massive Attack at Manchester Arena, Manchester, 29 January 2019, from £43.50 - Book now

Legendary trip hop group Massive Attack formed in 1988 in Bristol. Consisting of Robert “3D” Del Naja, Grant “Daddy G” Marshall and formerly Andy “Mushroom” Vowles (“Mush”), they released their debut album Blue Lines back in 1991. Its lead single ‘Unfinished Sympathy’ was voted the 63rd greatest song of all time in a poll by the then-music-bible, NME. 1998’s Mezzanine followed, which contained the massive single ‘Teardrop’ as well as amazing tracks like ‘Angel’ and ‘Black Milk’. It’s this album that they will soon bring to Manchester Arena. Rather than playing Mezzanine as it was recorded, though, Massive Attack will present a brand new audiovisual production which totally re-imagines the record, twenty years on from its release. Who knows what they’ve got in store, but we’ve an inkling that it’s something special.
