Massive Attack‘s forthcoming live shows in NEW ZEALAND have been pulled following ROBERT 3-D DEL NAJA’s recent arrest on Internet porn allegations.

As previously reported, the star has been questioned by Avon & Somerset police in connection with allegations of drug possession and Internet pornography offences. He issued a statement saying he is co-operating with police, and has “complete faith in the justice system”.

According to a report in this morning’s (March 5) The Sun newspaper, shows set to take place in Wellington and Auckland this weekend have been postponed.

A statement has been issued to NME.COM, that reads: “Massive Attack have rescheduled their shows in New Zealand. The new dates are Wellington 29th March and Auckland 30th. All tickets are valid and the change of dates will be communicated locally today or tomorrow.

“The band want to fulfill their commitments to their fans in New Zealand as well as those in Australia and therefore the tour is going ahead as planned from next week starting in Melbourne.

The rest of the band’s tour in Japan and Europe remains unchanged. Robert Del Naja continues to deny allegations made recently and is hoping for a swift and positive resolution.”

Massive Attack‘s UK shows are scheduled for April.
