HMV opened its new shop on Grafton Street on Saturday April 19, with Hermitage Green, Leading Armies and The Riptide Movement among those playing live in-store.

Also part of the opening celebrations were Ministry of Sound DJ Shane Kehoe and Dublin's DJ Francois.

Speaking at the opening, Larry Howard, CEO of Hilco Capital Ireland, owners of HMV Ireland, said: "The new HMV Grafton Street store looks amazing. We've had so much feedback from customers about how much they've missed us, and we couldn't be happier to be bringing HMV back to its spiritual home on Grafton Street."
