Phoenix Fall U.S. Tour


French rock quartet Phoenix will indulge music fans and critics alike with a highly anticipated fall U.S. tour after they sold out select dates across North America earlier this summer. The tour will take the band from the Monolith Festival at the famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver to NYC's Central Park Summerstage to Austin City Limits, bringing to life the musical gems from Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, out now on Loyaute/Glassnote Records. Metric will open for Phoenix at the Greek Theatre in L.A. on September 16 and Passion Pit supports at Central Park Summerstage in NYC on September 25 and 26. But a dose of Phoenix's live brilliance will come sooner than September when Saturday Night Live re-airs the band's appearance on August 1. Tune in to NBC at 11:35 p.m. EST/PST to see Phoenix perform irresistible singles "1901" and "Lisztomania."

America's love affair with Phoenix has grown exponentially since the release of Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, already being lauded as one of the year's best albums. A seamless blend of unstoppable choruses, dynamic guitars, and whimsical pop sensibilities, it is an album that would make any music fan fall in love. Phoenix's live performances infuse the songs with an energy that makes them soar while Thomas Mars' purely melodic voice brings an irreplaceable quality to the band's soundscape.

Be sure to catch Phoenix this fall.

Praise for Phoenix:

"The new tunes were relentless in their drive, careering from tightly woven verses to horizon-scanning choruses, with a lot of sharp details in between." – New York Times

"...more musically confident than ever... the 10 songs are sleek and clean…an exuberant rush of guitar pop." (4 stars) – Rolling Stone
