Back a year to the day after his sold out live Tripod appearance, Laurent Garnier makes his triumphant return to Harcourt Street. Since his third album, Unreasonable Behaviour, and the subsequent world tour, Laurent has definitely not been wasting time. There have been a series of legendary concerts, whether it was replacing Guns N' Roses at the last minute in the Torhout-Werchter festival in Belgium or playing in Vietnam. After a year as Radio Nova's music programmer, Garnier set up PBB (, his first own web radio, conceived as a radical response to French radio's conservative approach to music. This outlet allows him to share treasures from his record collection. In 2008, the release of "Back to my Roots" on the German imprint Innervisions hit everyone by surprise and invaded the playlists of most of DJs during the summer. In 2009, Laurent Garnier presents !Tales of a Kleptomaniac" his brand new album. He and the band will hit the road again from the spring onwards, stopping in Dublin on March 16th for a pre-Paddy's day party.
