, Staff

Phoenix have revealed plans for a stateside tour this fall that will include a stop at Boston’s Agganis Arena on Monday, October 18. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $25 to¬† $39.50, go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation. Two Door Cinema Club will open the show.

The alt-rockers from Paris, France continue tour in support of their critically acclaimed 2009 album Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. The album, their fourth studio effort, has been powered by hit singles “1901”, “Lisztomania” and “Lasso”. Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix was awarded the Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album earlier this year.

The four men of Phoenix, Laurent Brancowitz (guitar) and his bandmates Thomas Mars (vocals), Christian Mazzalai (guitar), and Deck D’Arcy (keyboards/bass), are a close-knit group of childhood friends from Versailles and have deep roots in the modern French music scene. Phoenix was formally founded after they performed backing Air for a few shows in the UK. The upcoming show at the Agganis Arena will be the band’s biggest in New England, having performed at the Paradise Rock Club on their last outing.
