News Massive Attack cancel tour after “serious illness” of member

The band say the unnamed member in question is “now in recovery”.

Massive Attack have cancelled their forthcoming 2022 tour as an unnamed member of the band battles a “serious illness”.

The band were set to play a host of headline shows and festival dates across this summer, but took to social media today to announce that the tour was off.

Their message began: “For the past few months, a member of Massive Attack has been contending with a serious illness. We are pleased to say they are now in recovery.

“This process is positive but also challenging and ongoing, which unfortunately means that Massive Attack are not presently in a position to fulfil our live shows scheduled for May, June, and July 2022.

“The ban deeply regret any inconvenience or disappointment caused – particularly to the fans with whom it’s always an honour to engage, and to our production crew who, owing to other global events, have already had to wait to long to do what they do so well.”

The statement concluded: “We thank you for your patience and support,” promising the band would be “back soon”.
