Tickets on sale Friday, 24 June at 10am to see alt-j at the National Museum of Ireland on August 25th.
As part of the Wider Than Pictures series at the National Museum of Ireland Collins Barracks in August 2022, alt-J will perform on Thursday, August 25th.
alt-J are one of the most successful British bands of the millennium. Joe Newman, Gus Unger-Hamilton, and Thom Sonny Green have released four studio albums that, between them, have sold in excess of two million copies and their songs have been streamed over two and a half billion times.
Their 2012 Mercury Prize and Ivor Novello Award-winning debut An Awesome Wave, was followed two years later by their number one, GRAMMY, and BRIT Award-nominated album This Is All Yours.
Released in 2017, RELAXER flew straight into the top 10 of the UK album chart ahead of a summer of major international shows - including a headline show at London’s O2 Arena and headline performances at numerous festivals - and became their second album to be nominated for the Mercury Prize.
Hot Press' Pat Carty dubbed the album "wildly inventive and pretty brilliant" in his review of The Dream: "There’s nothing to forgive, mind, as one listen to lead single ‘U&Me’ – a bluesy guitar, the puncturing chorus and then the addition of the woo-woo backing vocal – attests. When Joe Newman sings about “holding on to the memory of that day for the rest of my life,” he is, apparently, remembering the good times of being at a festival with his pals, and we’re all looking forward to experiencing that again, hopefully while singing along with him."
