written for High Voltage

One of the world’s greatest ensembles are back and ready to embark on some exciting live performances. Beirut, the brainchild of the significantly talented Zach Condon, have announced a fairly hefty set of tour dates for 2011, stopping off in Manchester, as well as Hyde Park in London where they will perform with Arcade Fire. Condon is an extremely accomplished singer, multi instrumentalist and composer who has written some truly wonderful songs in recent times. With so many beautiful melodies making them a compelling band to listen to, the chance to catch a full Beirut line-up is too good an opportunity to miss.
