Tricky To Blow Back Stateside For Tour

Trip-hopper to begin U.S. trek September 19.

After spending August on the European festival circuit, Tricky will blow

back to the U.S. for a fall tour beginning September 19 in Chicago.

Promoting the recently released Blowback, the electronic music

mastermind has lined up dates in the Midwest and South. More shows may be added,

according to his management.

Tricky recently broke through to a more mainstream audience, thanks to his collaborations with Live singer Ed Kowalczyk.

The two scored a summer hit with "Evolution Revolution Love" from

Blowback, and are currently climbing Billboard's Modern Rock

singles chart with "Simple Creed," from Live's forthcoming V (see

"Live Turn Tracks Written In Smelly Locker Rooms Into Aggressive V").

Jamaican prodigy Hawkman, who sings on "Evolution Revolution Love" and

several other Blowback tracks, will join Tricky on the tour. His

debut album, produced by Tricky, is due early next year.

Blowback is Tricky's first album since 1999's poorly received

Juxtapose.
