Hip-hop trio De La Soul will play two Irish dates this June, including a date at Dublin's Olympia Theatre.

The trio, who formed in 1987, are about to release their eighth studio album 'And the Anonymous Nobody' - which is their first in 12 years and was crowdfunded via Kickstarter.

They'll play the Olympia Theatre on June 16th and also Belfast's Limelight on June 15th.

Tickets for the Dublin gig are €40 including booking fee, and on sale this Friday at 10am from usual outlets.
