Phoenix to play Madison Square Garden

on July 08, 2010, 3:45pm

France doesn’t have a great history of invasions, but the Phoenix invasion of America continues on. Their latest, greatest, and biggest move yet? An October 20th date at Madison Square Garden with Dirty Projectors, reports BrookynVegan. So, yes, NYC, while you might not be getting Lebron, you are getting the French indie-rock band.

Fun fact: In September of 2009, Phoenix play the 6,000-person capacity Central Park Summerstage in New York. Madison Square Garden’s capacity is almost 20,000.

Riding the coattails of their break-out album, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, for the second consecutive summer, Phoenix continues to sell out bigger venues and move from day sets to headlining festivals such as Lollapalooza. Find a complete list of all upcoming tour dates below.
