The countdown to the most entertaining show of the year is on as Karpos Multimedia opens 2014 with a bang as they present Grammy award winning French indie pop band Phoenix. They will headline their debut show in Manila on January 21, 2014 at the World Trade Center in Pasay City. Tickets are available at SM Tickets outlets and at the SM Tickets website at Php 5000 for VIP Seated and Php 3500 for Gold Standing.
The indie-pop quartet from Versailles, France is coming to Manila for the first time to perform hits from their earlier albums as well as from their 2009 Grammy award winning album Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix such as "Lasso," "Lisztomania," and "1901." The band will also be playing tracks from their recently released album Bankrupt!
From its inception in 1999 to playing before crowds at sold-out shows all over the world, Phoenix’s international success is undeniable. Their accomplishment as artists is only reaffirmed by their fifth studio album, Bankrupt!, which was described by The Guardian as “a classy, occasionally experimental set informed by breezy 80s sounds and vintage synths.”
The 10-track follow up to Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix is considered by many as a self-reflective commentary of the band’s experience post-success with songs like "SOS in Bel Air" and "Oblique City" describing the pros and cons of their life on the road.
With five albums under its belt, Phoenix’s roster of songs will definitely get the crowd at the World Trade Center pumped up with their adrenaline-inducing riffs and catchy wordplay. With a headliner like Phoenix, concert-goers will surely appreciate the intimate feel of the World Trade Center as this will allow the band to fully interact and feed off of the energy of an enthusiastic and passionate crowd.
There are many things to look forward to in 2014 and watching Thomas Mars, Deck D’Arcy, Christian Mazzalai, and Laurent Brancowitz play our favorite Phoenix songs for the first time in Manila is unquestionably one of them. The lisztomania surrounding this international headliner is contagious and Phoenix fans will surely have their earful of the French foursome’s signature quirky tunes on January 21.
Tickets are available at all SM Ticket outlets nationwide. This event is made possible by Karpos Multimedia.
