From the Massive Attack camp:

OFFICIAL STATEMENT:

Massive Attack Forced to Cancel First Four Shows of North American Tour

Despite timely and coordinated efforts, the essential U.S. immigration visas were not issued in time for the beginning of the Massive Attack North American Tour. Subsequently, the band has been forced to cancel the first four shows (Toronto, 9/10, Montreal, 9/11, Detroit 9/12, Chicago, 9/13). Currently, the rest of the tour remains in tact. The band hopes to reschedule the cancelled shows as soon as possible.

........

This is disappointing, as we were obviously so excited for Massive Attack's return to Detroit. Do you think the band's name gave Homeland Security the willies?
