The gig at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre features a touching tribute...

Massive Attack held a minute’s silence at their show last night in recognition of Iraqi citizens caught up in the current war in their country.

The group are currently Down Under playing shows in support of their current album ‘100th Window’.

At the gig at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre (March 20), the band lined-up at the front of the stage before their performance, held hands, and conducted a minute of silence.

Frontman Robert 3-D Del Naja said: “As you all know, the war in Iraq started today. We’d like you all to join us in silence to think about the innocent civilians who are suffering as a result of this tragedy.”

Del Naja has been one of the most outspoken critics of the war in Iraq. Since last year he has been involved in various demonstrations in London, and along with Damon Albarn, designed and financed a number of anti-war ads that appeared in the NME.
