Beirut at Terminal 5 in 2011 (more by VIncent Cornelli)
Beirut

Beirut are currently on an international tour that includes dates in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and South Korea. They're beginning to reveal some North American dates happening later on this year, including Coachella and a NYC show happening on August 29 at Rumsey Playfield in Central Park (aka Summerstage). Tickets go on sale Friday (1/13) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (1/11) at noon.

That makes the total Central Park Summerstage shows, as of January 2012, up to four already. The other three are Foster the People, one of which was just announced with Tokyo Police Club on June 11 (AmEx presale also starts Wednesday at noon).

Foster the People seriously need to be mercy killed. For the greater good.

great venue for Beirut. glad I didn't go to those T5 shows. music is definitely well-suited for the outdoors.

I am glad you are happy 11:42. You are a savvy concert goer and know all the ins and outs and stuff. If you're happy, we're happy.

glad you took that as a totalizing comment rather than a specific one to this band and the aforementioned venues (wrung from personal experience, devoid of pretense), 11:54. and so it goes...

No, seriously, the whole world is so glad for you that you didn't buy T5 tix. We are so happy for you and that choice. Because you are precious. And we care about YOUR choices man

There's just so many shows happening at the SummerStage... I can't decide which one to go to!

I saw 11:42's hummus platter, and let me tell you it was small.

why are foster the people playing 3 shows at central park? are they really that popular? are the shows all ages? wow. how many times can they realistically play pumped up kicks?

Foster the People = worst band attempting to make "indie" music of 2011?

Posted by Anonymous | January 11, 2012 8:30 AM

8:14,

I think it probably is due to the fact that they have a gold album and two of the dates are already sold out. Just a thought though....

10:33, i'm not a rocket scientist like you, but the question was WHY? (read: they suck, so how the fuck are they playing 3 shows at central park? who is going, high school kids?) kapish?

Attn all baristas: STOP playing Pumped Up Kicks at your coffee shop. You're better than that
