M83 coming to the House of Blues in Orlando
Hey, Orlando, quit hogging all the M83!
The dreamy electro-pop outfit led by Frenchman Anthony Gonzalez played the Beacham Theatre last November, shortly before their album Hurry Up, We're Dreaming and single Midnight City began racking up beaucoup year-end kudos from Filter, Paste, Spin and countless other tastemakers. Pitchfork even called Midnight City the best song of 2011. Take that, Adele!
So now, less than a year after that show at the Beacham, M83 are already coming back to Orlando and not Tampa. C'mon, dude! Phoenx did the same thing. Does France just have it out for Tampa?
M83 will perform at the House of Blues at Downtown Disney on Sept. 27. Tickets are $27.50. Click here. (They're also coming to the Fillmore in Miami on Sept. 26. A full itinerary hasn't been unveiled just yet, but going by Live Nation's calendar, it looks like there might be room to squeeze in one more show in Tampa somewhere in September. How about it, Tony? A Metric-M83 back-to-backer at the Ritz would look pretty sweet to us.
