Massive Attack have been openly pro Palestine and have illustrated their support at their latest concerts, including the one played last night in Byblos, Lebanon. Through the visuals projected as their backdrop, their messages of solidarity and activism have been very clear.

The band played an amazing set last night at the Byblos International Festival. The crowd was more than excited as Massive Attack took the stage. They played some great hits including Inertia Creeps, Teardrop, Angel, and Paradise Circus.

The audience cheered and voiced agreement when statements supporting the Gaza situation were projected. It was the perfect combination of great music and a major cause to stand up for. Overall, it was a very calm and chill show. It seemed everyone in the crowd was satisfied with Massive Attack’s performance. We definitely were not disappointed.

Making news headlines in Lebanon yesterday and today, Massive Attack band members, Robert Del Naja and Grant Marshall were photographed as they went on a tour of the Al Naqab Center which is a center for Palestinian refugees offering classes and youth activities and is run by Palestinian volunteers. Their tour of the center was part of their visit to the Bourj el-Barajneh Palestinian refugee camp in Beirut.

According to local media outlets, last night’s proceeds will be donated to the Al-Naqab center as funds for a new public library in the camp as well as the support of new ambulance services in Gaza.
