It's been five years since we've seen English trip-hopper Tricky perform on U.S. shores, and finally, the man born Adrian Thaws has announced some Stateside performances. Shows will be in support of his new album, Knowle West Boy, which is set to drop September 9 via Domino. In addition to performing tracks off the release, Thaws has also promised to pull out songs from his entire catalog, backed by a brand-new band. They'll play in a very select bunch of cities, so consider forgoing the skyrocketing gas prices and driving to one of the cities below.
