Phoenix confirm Australian return

In August of 2009, Phoenix sold out their only three Australian shows so fast that there were just as many tearful ticketless folk outside the venues as there were those inside lucky enough to witness the best damn pop show of their lives.

Now is the time to dry those eyes – France’s finest, Phoenix, will return in March 2010 and spread the love ever wider with shows in Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Sydney.

Tickets go on sale Thursday December 10.

After a decade together and with four damn fine albums to their name, including their latest, 2009’s stellar Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, the Parisienne foursome come armed with one of the most delicious set-lists going around – ranging from Wolfgang’s irresistible radio favourites Lisztomania and 1901, to the singalong stomp of Long Distance Call and Napoleon Says, the hip-shakin’ Consolation Prizes, and early fan favourites Run Run Run, Too Young and If I Ever Feel Better.

Singer Thomas Mars, guitarists Christian Mazzalai and Laurent Brancowitz and bassist Deck D’Arcy offer a uniquely French blend of charisma, style, underground electronic soundscapes, infectious melodies, sharp hooks, house beats and retro rock.

Special guests on all East Coast shows will be MIAMI HORROR. Producer Benjiman Plant has made a name for himself with remixes of The Presets, Faker, Pnau and Datarock. Irresistible, electro-indie-pop, Miami Horror’s latest offering is the infectious track Sometimes from the forthcoming album due early 2010. At a recent Melbourne gig, Fasterlouder exclaimed of Miami Horror’s four-piece live ensemble: “…this music is even greater live. Don’t wait to find out about Miami Horror on the back of some dance annual, this is the kind of performance worth seeing live.”
