Phoenix Shines With All New Material In Their Return To Red Rocks

Parisian electropop rockers Phoenix made their return to Red Rocks in support of their new album Ti Amo (coincidentally drops tomorrow). With a slew of new material Thomas Mars and company used the picturesque venue to debut newer material. Holding on to some of the classics Phoenix managed to create an all dance party in spite of a short lived torrential downpour (seems like a pattern this year at Red Rocks). Playing hits like "1901", "Liztomania", and newer soon to become hits like "J-Boy' and "Ti Amo", the band shined and received a warming applause. We still remember seeing them when they first played Red Rocks back during the Monolith Festival and just like back then, we still love to cut a rug to the awesome music they perform. Strong support from SXSW faves The Lemon Twigs and veterans Miike Snow got the mood started with amazing opening sets.,
