Marking the renowned indie band’s third concert tour after headlining big festivals around the globe and sold-out shows from city to city, Upfront Arena presents The xx to perform in Kuala Lumpur for the first time ever in January 2018.
The powerhouse trio initially formed in Wandsworth, London circa 2005 with the three members; Romy Madley Croft (vocals & guitar), Oliver Sim (vocals & bass) and Jamie Smith (beats & production), also known as Jamie xx for his solo music direction.
Notable tunes from the early days of The xx are from their debut album that took off the ground in 2009. I remember vividly the first time I was introduced to the album and was completely mind-blown by the dream pop love songs that are so easily relatable. If ‘intro’ wasn’t enough to lure you into listening to the whole album, then I don’t know what will. Coexist’s release in 2012 lived up the hype of the first album without overpowering each other.
There’s a lot to look forward to with the ‘I See You’ tour, especially with the album’s goal of incorporating each member’s sound into creating a new version of their signature shoegaze label. Anticipate an emotion-filled concert with the most amazing visuals because if it’s one band I’ve seen perform, The xx sets the bar for showmanship at world class quality.
The xx will be performing at MITEC at 7PM on 25th January 2018. Tickets start at the price of RM220 for early birds who make their purchase at 10AM on Wednesday, 18th October 2017. RM270 for pre-sale and RM330 for regular purchase. All tickets are free standing and will be available online at ticketpro.com.my.
