Jurassic 5 add extra Dublin date

1 of 1 J5 in 2006
J5 in 2006

The original line-up of renowned LA hip-hop collective Jurassic 5 will now play Dublin's Vicar Street on June 16 and 17 due to extra demand.

Tickets priced €36 (incl booking fee) are on sale now through www.ticketmaster.ie and Ticketmaster outlets nationwide.

Natural heirs to the intelligent and funky postivity of De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest, J5's style of playful and retro-infused turntablism and harmonising pass-the-mic rapping was an instant hit in the mid-90s.

They released four acclaimed albums - 1998's Jurassic 5, 2000′s Quality Control, 2002′s Power In Numbers and their last album 2006′s Feedback.

The six piece reformed after a long hiatus for last year’s Coachella Festival in the US with the original line-up of Cut Chemist, Nu-Mark, Chali 2na, Akil, Zaakir and Mark 7even.
