M83 and the Los Angeles Philharmonic perform a co-headlining concert that pairs the orchestra and M83’s chief star-gazer Anthony Gonzalez in a program that features individual performances, as well as M83’s debut performance with an orchestra. This one-night-only concert, held on Saturday, March 7, at 9 p.m., also marks M83’s debut at Walt Disney Concert Hall. Julian Kuerti, Assistant Conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, conducts.
This concert includes three sets that will be performed in an order to be determined: the Los Angeles Philharmonic performs by itself in a program that includes orchestral pieces chosen in collaboration with M83; M83 performs solo material; and the Philharmonic performs a selection of songs with M83, (featuring orchestral arrangements by Sean O’Loughlin, who also wrote the arrangements for the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s performances with Belle & Sebastian, The Decemberists and others at the Hollywood Bowl).
M83 recently wrapped up a 2008 UK tour with Kings of Leon, concluded their own sold-out North American tour, and joins The Killers during the first leg of their 2009 tour.
