Massive Attack have postponed upcoming shows while a band member recovers from a “serious illness”.
The Bristol-based band, who canceled performances in May, June and July, have not named the person but said that while the process is positive, it is also “challenging and ongoing”.
In a statement, the band apologized to their crew who had “already had to wait so long to do what they do so well” following the devastating impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the live music industry.
“For several months, a member of Massive Attack has been battling a serious illness. We are happy to say that they are now recovering.
“This process is positive, but also challenging and ongoing, which unfortunately means that Massive Attack is currently unable to fulfill our live shows scheduled for May, June and July 2022.
“The band deeply regrets any inconvenience or disappointment – particularly to the band’s fans, with whom it is always an honor to engage,” the statement read.
The band, which includes vocalist Robert Del Naja, aka 3D, signed their message that they will be “back soon”.
