Beirut Australian Tour January 2012 – Second Melbourne show added

Beirut have announced a second Melbourne show after selling out the Forum Theatre on the 10th of January. The new show has been slotted in the night before, on the 9th, but will be at the Hi-Fi instead.

Beirut will also be performing at the Sydney Opera House on the 5th of January, the Hi Fi in Brisbane on the 12th and on the Southbound and Falls Festival line-ups.

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.
