Phoenix are back! Just one day before they headlined Night 2 of The Governors Ball Music Festival in New York, Phoenix played an electrifying and intimate performance at The Fillmore Philadelphia.
Long Island natives, The Lemon Twigs opened the show with an entertaining and upbeat set. Brothers Brian D’Addario and Michael D’Addario alternated between instruments and vocals while playing tracks off their 2016 debut album, Do Hollywood. The Lemon Twigs were an excellent opening that will eventually be headlining a venue like The Fillmore sooner rather than later.
The French band has played to thousands of people at venues like Madison Square Garden and Barclays Center, so seeing them perform to a sold out show at The Fillmore was on a completely different level. It’s been three years since their last tour and this time around they are supporting their highly anticipated new album, Ti Amo, the follow-up to 2013’s Bankrupt! They played five tracks from the new album; “J-Boy,” “Role Model,” “Love Life,” “Fior de Latte,” and the title track, “Ti Amo.”
With an impressive 19 song set list, fans sang along to hits like “Lisztomania,” “Entertainment,” and “Rome.” The band honored the victims of the terrorist attack in Manchester with a stripped version of “Countdown” while the background lit up orange for National Gun Violence Awareness. The crowd sang along with lead singer Thomas Mars for the emotional moment that was easily a highlight of the night. Phoenix closed out the night with the song that made them an international success, “1901.”
Ti Amo will be released on June 9. Pre-order the album here.
