Phoenix: Ti Amo Tour – Show Review 

By Sara Valenzuela

The Anthem opened it’s doors this year; bringing in the most legendary bands such as The Foo Fighters, LCD Soundsystem, and Phoenix as their first couple of acts in October. I had the amazing opportunity to witness French indie rockers: Phoenix take the stage. It was a show I’ve been recommending everyone I possibly can to watch since the date a couple weeks ago. The Versaille-based band always leaves me buzzing for days after their performances; they’re simply unforgettable. 


As soon as Phoenix emerged onto the stage, the crowd was roaring. DC had missed the four-piece band composed by lead Thomas Mars, bassist Deck D’arcy, and guitarist Christian Mazzalai and Laurent Brancowitz, since their last bout in the city a few months ago. Introducing the night with the first beats to J-Boy, it was impossible for the audience and the band not to burst into an Italian-disco frenzy! From the light show to Mars jumping into the crowd, it was a celebration from beginning to end. They performed tracks from ‘romantic, glossy, soft-pop ode to sweet escapes and dance floors’ new album Ti Amo as well as illustrious past hits. 


DC thundered through every song, and the atmospheric crowd did not disappoint. I looked back from GA during their prominent track 1901, to admire the moment. I remember seeing the crowd, in the multiple-level venue, spring up and down rich with joy. Never missing a beat or an opportunity to show their appreciation, Phoenix was the hero of DC that night.
Keep up with Phoenix!
