Tricky Mounts Another US Tour

What, exactly, would a
“special performance” with Devo entail?

By Blurt Staff

After a September US
club tour that ushered his triumphant return to the stage, Tricky announces his most extensive US tour to
date. Kicking off in March, the
five week coast to coast trek includes a special performance with Devo at SXSW and a featured performance at the Langerado Music Festival. Select dates are on sale now.

To coincide with the tour, a digital “Puppy Toy” single with unreleased b-sides, remixes and videos for
“Puppy Toy” and “Council Estate” is set for a March 3rd release.

After the September 2008 release of his acclaimed album Knowle
West Boy
, Tricky
embarked on a mammoth nine week, nineteen country European tour that saw the
iconic British musician and his new band sell out the London Barbican and played for packed houses from Antwerp
to Zurich.
At home in the UK,
Tricky has been invited by NME
to headline three of their Awards shows in February 2009. Tricky will perform at Shockwaves NME Awards shows in Manchester, Glasgow and at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire on February 20th .

Tricky will
be performing songs from his entire catalog, as well as tracks from the new
album. Produced by
Tricky, Knowle West Boy is named after the urban ghetto where Tricky was raised. The
album finds Tricky
reaching into the post-punk, Two-Tone, reggae, hip hop and pure pop he grew up
adoring and twisting it all into surreal
songscapes, creating the most varied and accessible set of his career
