Electronic music legends Leftfield are coming to Ireland for their first headline club show in eight years.

Fans last saw them headlining Metropolis Festival at the RDS last year and they're coming back to the city for one night only at Vicar Street on Friday May 25, 2018.

“I can’t wait to get back to Ireland we love playing there. The best reception. The best crowds. It’s going to go off," said Neil Barnes.

Coming on the back of the reissue of their debut album Leftism, the show will incorporate music from across their back catalogue.

Released in January 1995 Leftism (made by Neil Barnes and Paul Daley) remains one of the defining statements of dance music and was voted in the top ten albums of all time by readers of Q magazine.
