Tickets for the live-streamed event are available now.
Over 94 years after the premiere of Seán O'Casey's iconic play The Plough And The Stars famously sparked riots at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin, Lankum are set to stage 'A National Disgrace' of their own at the legendary venue.
This Saturday, August 15, the Dublin band, alongside a number of special guests, will broadcast what they've described as "an evening like no other" to exclusive ticket holders.
According to the event description, the immersive experience "begins with your taxi drive to Dublin's historic Abbey Theatre. You will be welcomed inside by our specially chosen usher and directed to your seat, thus beginning your gradual descent into a warped, dreamworld of musical performance, theatre, winding passages, doorways, drones and existential uncertainty..."
Lankum will perform two sets, made up of music from all three of their acclaimed album – with both sets forming continuous pieces of music devised by the band and their producer John "Spud" Murphy, including a number of songs they've never performed.
The broadcast will also be available to ticket holders to view for 24 hours following the performance.
