Massive Attack have announced a huge UK show for September
The band have teamed up with Primal Scream and Skepta, to bring a massive event to their home city of Bristol later this year. Although this has come as a one-off show, the band hope to make it an annual occurrence.
Announcing the news to their fans on Facebook earlier this week, the band said: “We are curating what we hope will become an annual event something made in Bristol with a truly colonial reach.”
The show will take place at Bristol Downs on 3rd September, although it won’t all just be about the performance, as the band added: “We will also use the project to engage with the important social and political issues of the day.”
This year, Massive Attack will also be playing a show at Plymouth Pavilions on 29th June, followed by their headline performance at British Summer Time festival in Hyde Park on 1st July, prior to their Bristol performance.
Tickets for the show go on sale this Friday (20th May) at 9am.
