M83 to play with Los Angeles Philharmonic
Just announced early this week, M83 will take the stage at the Walt Disney Concert and play a show with the L.A. Philharmonic March 7. Internet presale started today, and general tickets go on sale Friday, Jan. 30, at 10 a.m.
According to the L.A. Philharmonic, the concert includes three sets that will be performed in an order to be determined: the Los Angeles Philharmonic performs by itself in a program that includes orchestral pieces chosen in collaboration with M83; M83 performs solo material; and the Philharmonic performs a selection of songs with M83, (featuring orchestral arrangements by Sean O’Loughlin, who also wrote the arrangements for the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s performances with Belle & Sebastian, The Decemberists and others at the Hollywood Bowl).
M83 played a nearly sold-out show at the Music Box @ Fonday Nov. 28. M83’s fifth album, Saturdays=Youth was regarded by a number of DJs and publications as one of the best of 2008, including an NPR nomination for Album of the Year. More info.
