Phoenix reveal return in Jan/Feb
Tue 12th May, 2009 Newsin
Speaking with Triple J’s Morning program today, Phoenix vocalist Thomas Mars divulged that the band will be here early next year. As revealed on ITM, they’ll make a fly-by visit in August to play shows in Sydney and Melbourne – although those dates are yet to be ‘officially’ announced.
After getting off the phone with Mars, Triple J Mornings posted on Twitter: “Confirmed! Phoenix will play two shows in August – one in Melbs and one in Sydders! Then plan on returning in Jan/Feb for a bigger tour.”
Given how well-suited Phoenix was to the open air and sunny skies of V Festival 2007, we can only assume they’re returning for one of our summer romps. The impetus for the group’s recent flurry of activity is new album Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, released in Australia on 22 May.
