The elusive U.K. trip-hop group Massive Attack will make good on a Detroit performance after canceling its entire spring tour.

Originally scheduled for Friday, March 22, the show at Detroit's Masonic Temple was canceled late last week due to an unspecified illness. The rare tour, which celebrates the 20th anniversary of the group's seminal album Mezzanine, had recently wrapped up a European leg and was scheduled to kick off a North American run in Montreal on March 11.

Live Nation announced Thursday that the Detroit performance has been rescheduled for Thursday, Sept. 12. Tickets for the original March 22 event will be honored for the new show; fans unable to make the rescheduled date will be refunded via point of purchase.
