In an interview last month about the ‘Mezzanine’ tour, Robert Del Naja said he was “happy for it to be unpredictable.”
Also discussing the nostalgia linked to the tour, he added: “I don’t think I’ve got a problem with nostalgia, because a lot of the time things are self-referential…I stopped feeling nostalgia for the moment because I imagine myself looking back on it from the future, which really freaks me out. I get this vertigo where I’m not thinking about the past, I’m thinking about how I’m going to feel in 10 years’ time.”
