Beirut kicked off their tour supporting their first album in four years, Gallipoli, at Brooklyn Steel on Sunday (2/10) night. Frontman Zach Condon may have been under the weather with the flu, but he still sounded great, playing a set that pulled mostly from the new album but also included older favorites like "Nantes" and "Postcards from Italy."

Beirut's tour continues through April, and includes two more nights in NYC this week: another Brooklyn Steel show on Monday (2/11), and Music Hall of Williamsburg on Saturday (2/16). MHOW is sold out, but tickets are on sale now for Brooklyn Steel.

Helado Negro opened Sunday night's show. Check out pictures in the gallery above, and video clips, and the setlist from Beirut's set, below.
