8 Upfront Arena presents The xx
Hailed as ‘Britain’s most influential modern band’ by British newspaper The Telegraph, The xx are set to make their debut in KL in January next year. Despite being known for their minimalist instrumentals and hushed vocals, their live shows have often been praised as impressive spectacles as the band utilises colourful lights and plays unique renditions of their hits. Fans who caught them in Singapore earlier this year have to rethink their choices if they’re thinking of giving this a miss. Bassist Oliver Sim mentioned in an interview that the Singapore gig in July was a ‘stripped down’ version of the live experience they’ll be bringing come January.
MITEC, 8 Jalan Dutamas 2, KL (03 7880 7999/ticketpro.com. my). Jan 25, 7pm. Pre-sale, RM270; regular, RM330.
