Massive Attack – Olympia Theatre Dublin Oct 6th ’09

I had the great pleasure of seeing Massive Attack live in Dublin’s Olympia Theatre last night – October 6th 2009. Below is a video of the song ‘Angel’ that I shot on my Flip camera. It was a superb gig – top quality performance, amazing set and light show. Being in the pit and only feet away from the stage was the icing on the cake! Massive Attack are a band I’ve been listening to for years. The diversity of their music is incredible and they manage somehow to reproduce it all live. Their music is timeless. I can’t wait to hear the new album and see them again soon!

** UPDATE *** I’ve also now added the video below of the intro track Massive Attack played at the gig in Dublin. Not sure what it’s called. But I like it!

Massive Attack Dublin

I recently picked up my tickets to see Massive Attack in Dublins Olympia Theatre, and to catch up on some tunes I dialed in to the very cool Grooveshark. I normally shy away from buying compilation or ‘best of’ albums so hadn’t ever got Collected. So given the opportunity to do some catching up on some old school and more recent Massive Attack I decided to give it a listen on Grooveshark. In doing so I came across a tune I’d never heard before – the very cool ‘Live with Me’ which was recorded especially for Collected. Check it out below. That’ll be one of the last times I skip past a best of album!
