The xx ‘I See You Tour Asia’ – Live in Kuala Lumpur | 25 Jan 2018 @ MITEC

Upfront Arena are excited to present indie phenomenon The xx ‘I See You Tour Asia’ – Live in Kuala Lumpur on 25 January 2018 at MITEC.

After playing sold out shows (including holding the record for the longest run of sold-out shows in legendary venue the O2 Brixton Academy, earlier this year) and headlining festivals around the world (including their own curated Night + Day festival events in Lisbon, Berlin and London), The xx are returning to Asia in 2018. Featuring a spectacular full-production sound and lights show, do not miss this rare opportunity to catch one of the world’s most sought-after acts, at the very top of their game.

In their latest offering, 2017’s ‘I See You’, The xx reveal themselves exploring a more playful, eclectic and expansive musical direction, winning over critics and fans alike with singles such as ‘On Hold’ and ‘Say Something Loving’.

Formed in London in 2005, The xx are Romy Madley Croft (vocals, lead guitar), Oliver Sim (vocals, bass guitar), and Jamie Smith, also known as Jamie xx (beats, MPC sampler). The trio rose from obscurity to win the 2010 Mercury Prize for their self-produced debut album ‘xx’, sparking a worldwide obsession for their original and intimate sound. Their follow-up album, 2012’s ‘Coexist’ expands on their signature sound and tender minimalist style, best evident in the beautifully fragile lead track ‘Angels’.
