Beirut Announces Summer Tour

After laying low for quite some time, songwriter Zach Condon appears to be immersing himself in Beirut once again. Recently Condon contributed a cover of Caetano Veloso’s “O Leãozinho” to the soon-to-be released Red Hot + Rio 2 benefit compilation. Now, Beirut will take to the road for much of this summer, playing with the likes of the Arcade Fire, The National, Twin Sister and more.
