Tricky: First US Dates in 5 Yrs

Select Club Dates to Kick off This September in Support of
New Album, Knowle West Boy, In Stores September 9, 2008

"Worth the wait, Knowle West Boy provides a uniquely varied soundscape from an equally enigmatic music maker." –URB MAGAZINE

"An album that hooks you in from a dozen different directions." –The London Times

Following the announcement of a continent-spanning international tour that is hitting the U.K., Europe, Australia, Japan, Russia and South Korea, Tricky has announced plans for an exclusive club tour that will hit select U.S. cities this fall supporting his new album Knowle West Boy (Domino Records, September 9, 2008). Scheduled to kick off at New York City's The Fillmore At Irving Plaza on September 4, Tricky's U.S. tour will hit eight select cities nationwide (see dates below). Prior to kick off Tricky will perform on The Late Show With David Letterman on September 3.

Tricky will tour the U.S. with an all new band, performing songs from throughout his entire catalog alongside tracks from the new album. Produced by Tricky, with Switch on mixing duties, 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. Knowle West Boy, was released last month in the U.K. to rave reviews. Q Magazine called the collection "vivacious," and Uncut states it's "his best album in at least a decade."
