Negativland Set First Shows In Six Years

Negativland, Molotov, Mecate, Blues Traveler, Fishbone, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Primus, Gwen Stefani, Perry Farrell, Busta Rhymes...

Underground collage band Negativland will play their first shows in six years

later this month with a three-date swing through the Pacific Northwest. The first show of

the tour, which a band publicist said will include almost all new material and will use five

movie projectors, three slide machines and a television, is scheduled for July 15 at the

Yo Yo a Go Go festival in Olympia, Wash. It will be followed with performances July 16 in

Seattle and July 17 in Portland, Ore. Negativland gained notoriety with their 1991 EP

U2, for which they were sued by Irish rock superstars U2's label and

publishing company; the EP was eventually recalled and destroyed.
