Live Photos: Tricky Closes US Tour with Epic Chicago Show

Though Chicago’s haloed Double Door concert hall may be closing soon, its legacy of hosting iconic shows (including an off-the-cuff Stones gig in ‘97) will transcend time. Trip-hop pioneer Tricky added to that legacy a week ago as he closed out the American leg of his current tour with passion and finesse. Tricky’s rhymes and beats incubated the sensual, r&b/electro scene of Bristol, England in the early ‘90s, and that acumen is also on full display in his latest album, Skilled Mechanics, featuring a range of guests including Porno for Pyros, IVY and Corey Taylor. The musician played many recent cuts as well as classics including “Parenthesis,” “Overcome” and “Sun Down.” Paste photographer Sarah Hess captured the evening, included a second encore that invited the entire crowd onstage.
