Selective Memory present Beirut live in Dublin for their first Irish Shows in 7 years at Vicar Street on 26 and 27 August 2019 as part of their Gallipoli European Tour.

Zach Condon, the mastermind behind Beirut, released his fifth studio album Gallipoli on February 1st 2019. To celebrate the release, Beirut are currently touring headline shows throughout North America and Europe and have just announced 2 highly anticipated shows at Dublin's Vicar Street this August 2019.

The 12-track Gallipoli started life in the winter of 2016, with Condon returning to his old Farfisa organ, the same one used to write the first two Beirut albums (2006’s Gulag Orkestar and the following year’s The Flying Club Cup). Following recording stints in New York and Berlin (where he now calls home), Condon settled in Sudestudio, a studio complex deep in rural Puglia, southern Italy. It was here that he rediscovered the old joys of music as a visceral experience which became the founding principle for Gallipoli.

Tickets from €37.50 (additional charges may apply) are on sale now from Ticketmaster outlets nationwide and www.ticketmaster.ie.
