On the night of August 17 at Moonstar Studio on Lad Phrao Soi 80, Thai indie fans were given a real treat. After 20 years of global fame and acclaim, French indie rock group Phoenix came to Thailand for their very first concert in the kingdom. And they did not disappoint.

Despite bad traffic and heavy storms, the venue was packed with nearly 3,000 people. After an energetic opening set from local synth-pop group PolyCat, Phoenix took to the stage at around 10 pm to a chorus of deafening screams. Alongside tracks from their latest album, Ti Amo, the band made sure to include old favourites such as “Lasso,” “Entertainment” and “Trying to Be Cool.” As the night reached its climax, frontman Thomas Mars led the crowd in a chorus of “Long Distance Call” before ending the night with a spine-tingling rendition of the single “Ti Amo.”

S Weekly were lucky enough to attend the show and the event staff agreed to share some photos of the memorable night.
