Nice, I was trying to get tickets to their show here in San Fran, and of course there is none available unless you pay the price of a little Korg synth :-)  Luckily I have had the good fortune to see them before, especially at Chicago’s Cabaret Metro, when they first toured Blue Lines.

It was a show that made you uncomfortable for much of it which is a difficult trick to pull off with thousands of people who come with such good will and want to be entertained. Massive Attack was having none of it. Amazing.
