British trip-hop duo Massive Attack will play a one-off gig in Moscow's Megasport Palace to promote their new album late on Friday.
The group will play a set from their long-awaited "Heligoland" album, which was released in February, the gig's organizers have said.
The album, the group's first new LP since the release of "100th window" in 2003, has made it into the top ten in more than a dozen countries around the world.
The Moscow show will be followed by a gig at St. Petersburg's CKK Sports Arena on Sunday.
British soul singer Martina Topley-Bird is the warm-up act for both shows.
Massive Attack, hailing from Bristol, named Britain's "most musical city" by a recent survey, are considered to be progenitors of the trip hop genre.

News that Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin would resign in order to run for the mayoral election in September came as quite a shock. Sobyanin’s political potential is fairly dubious, not to mention his approval ratings. He has not finished many of the projects he initiated and the electoral effect from these projects is expected to come a bit later than September 2013. Sobyanin’s opponents were not entirely unprepared for this blitzkrieg.
