Legendary hip-hop act Jurassic 5 will make their return to an Irish stage when they play Dublin's Vicar Street on June 17th next.

After having reformed for last year's Coachella festival with their original line-up of Cut Chemist, Nu-Mark, Chali 2na, Akil, Zaakir and Mark 7even, J5 proceeded to tear it up in the blazing desert sun. In their review, the Los Angeles Times noted that "Jurassic 5 provided a critical reminder of how durable hip-hop can be when done correctly."

This will be the band's first Irish gig since playing the same venue on August 28th 2005.

Tickets priced €36 (incl booking fee) on Wednesday February 5th @ 9am.
