Massive Attack have announced a new live show, ‘Mezzanine XX1’, re-imagining their ‘Mezzanine’ album for its 21st anniversary.

Featuring Cocteau Twins’ Liz Frazer, among other collaborators still to be announced, the show features new audio created from the original samples used on the album.

The band’s Robert Del Naja proclaims that it will be “a one-off piece of work; our own personalised nostalgia nightmare head trip”.

The live show follows the re-issue of the original album, including as DNA-encoded spray paint. Tickets for the live shows will go on general sale on Friday. Here are the dates:

28 Jan: Glasgow, Hydro
29 Jan: Manchester Arena
22 Feb: London, O2 Arena
24 Feb: Dublin, 3Arena
1 Mar: Bristol, Steel Yard
