Massive Attack Tickets

Massive Attack tickets - Massive Attack Tour

Tour/Concert Schedule

Massive Attack has become a highly sought-after musical group from the United Kingdom that has been taking the music world by storm. They first earned success with their first studio album Blue Lines, which topped the charts and made The Guardian's list of the greatest songs of all time. These talented DJs found their voice and a unique niche in the music industry. They have been called the fathers of the trip hop genre, and have created a style all their own.

Their act has lasted more than two decades, and they continue to surprise fans at every live performance. They continue to utilize the vocal skills of Del Naja, who can climb into a falsetto or belt out a flaming vocal melody when the time is right. Although Del Naja is the only original member of the group, Massive Attack has never lost its identity. Every guest vocalist brings a unique flavor to the already established style. The band continues to let their music speak for itself, performing mostly in dim light and projecting images on a screen behind them. It's a true marriage of technology, electronic music and tremendous musical abilities. There's never a dull moment when this impressive group takes the stage.


Trivia

The group has become a huge success over the past two decades, which has allowed them to perform in cities all over the world. Throughout their extensive travels, the group has become aware of the plight of different groups around the world, and they have done their best to help when they could. In the early 2000s, Massive Attack played a charity concert alongside Geoff Barrow of Portishead and Robert Plant to raise money for Tsunami Relief. They have also performed for and donated money to groups that support the advancement and civil rights of Palestinians.


About the Artist

The group began when DJs Daddy G and Andrew Vowles teamed up with rapper and graffiti artist Robert Del Naja to create a collective of musicians who entertained at parties. They called themselves The Wild Bunch, and began rocking the club scene in the UK. With their modern sound and over-the-top on-stage antics, the group became a star in the music world. After finding their voice, the group created a spin-off project called Massive Attack with well-known singer and songwriter Carlton McCarthy.

They signed to Circa Records in the early 1990s and began working on their first studio album, Blue Lines. With financial backing and industry advice from future manager Cameron McVey, the group began creating music. They utilized guest vocalists as well as Del Naja. Their sound was made up of hip hop down tempos, soul, reggae and electric influences. The music they created combined both lyrical and musical elements. Since then, the group has become a huge star on the scene, working with the likes of Madonna, David Bowie, Mos Def and reggae star Horace Andy.


Breakthrough Performance

When Massive Attack first hit the scene, music fans were excited to hear something completely new to the dance club scene. The group teamed up with Neneh Cherry to record the single "Manchild," which became an instant hit. It peaked at No. 5 on the UK single chart. This early success helped Massive Attack get the backing they needed to record their first album. They began recording their album in the early 1990s—mostly in McVey and Cherry's home—and released the project on Virgin Records in 1991. Soon, the musical ensemble was becoming a highly sought-after group. They recorded with Horace Andy and Shara Nelson and lent their vocals and musical skills to another one of Neneh Cherry's singles.

That same yea, Massive Attack released their first single entitled "Unfinished Sympathy." They recorded this future hit song at the legendary Abbey Road studio. The song that was produced out of this session became not only a hit with fans, but earned a spot on the list of the greatest songs of all time. They found themselves at the forefront of the electronic music world, and haven't looked back since. Their music continues to surprise music lovers and their live performances still catch fans off-guard.


Fan Experience

Massive Attack has always been at the forefront of the music scene, integrating the newest technology and giving their fans a taste of what's to come. And that has not changed over the past two decades. The group continues to marry their impressive vocal and musical skills with electronic elements and amazing special effects.

Cloaked in darkness, the performers are backlit by a giant screen that flashes images of the War in Iraq and a giant digital calculator that displayed the number of American and Iraqi deaths since the beginning of the war. This politically-charged moment in the concert is just enough to get your blood pumping when you think the end of the performance is near. Death-defying keyboard riffs and explosive beats leave the fans begging for more. With their biggest hits and latest tunes blaring through the speakers, this band delivers on every level.
