New pictures of Massive Attack’s custom-built temporary arena have been released on social media.
The band is constructing Steel Yard, a temporary arena in Bristol, ahead of the 21st anniversary gig of their album Mezzanine, taking place 1-2 March.
The gig is a high-profile homecoming for Massive Attack, who are from Bristol, and the 14,000 capacity venue reflects that in scope. It is located in the former site of FIlton Airfield.

The venue is being put together by YTL Arena Operations. Managing director Andrew Billingham said: “We’re delighted to have secured one of Bristol’s most prestigious bands to play at Filton Airfield next year as part of their Mezzanine anniversary tour.
“The airfield has played host to huge events in years gone by including major air shows for more than 30,000 spectators.
“The Steel Yard, Bristol will be a huge custom-built indoor venue that will create an amazing atmosphere for this very special event.”
