Beirut Australian Tour – Falls Festival 2011/2012 Sideshows

Written by Brayden Darke on October 4, 2011

Beirut have announced their Australian tour sideshows on the back of their appearance at the Falls and Southbound Festivals.

At the heart of Beirut’s unstoppable rise is the ability to combine a wide variety of musical styles – Balkan folk, French chanson, American indie and Mexican funeral songs – with founding member/songwriter Zac Condon’s stunning voice and beautifully written melodies.

Live, their diverse instrumentation of accordion, keyboards, saxophone, clarinet, mandolin, ukulele, horns, glockenspiel and percussion paired with Condon’s distinctive low croon is genuinely spine-tingling. Delivering a rich sound that is contemporary yet timeless, Beirut will have you swaying on your feet in no time.

With full Beirut band, Condon will perform songs including those from their stunning third full-length release, 2011’s The Rip Tide.

Pre-sale tickets available Wednesday 5 October 2011 via Handsome Tours mailing list – Sydney Opera House Insiders presale Tuesday 4 October.
