The Scottish indie pop sensation Belle & Sebastian are gearing up for their 2014 North American Tour and are scheduled to play Civic Space Park in Downtown Phoenix on Wednesday, October 8.
Belle & Sebastian are in the process of recording their ninth studio album and are widely revered in Europe by music critics and enthusiasts alike. They have recently been written about in the Rolling Stones and their folk ’60s pop tunes have consistently topped the charts in the UK. The excitement from music lovers here in Phoenix is also contagious and reinforces the expectation for Downtown Phoenix to rise to the top as a world-class music destination.
Outdoor park performances and Arizona weather are a matchmaker’s dream and Downtown Phoenix is ready to take center stage. The fact that Phoenix is attracting the attention of high profile artists and has an abundance of programming locations–both outdoor and indoor–is exciting and sets the tone for even more activity to come. The momentum around the music scene in Phoenix is a great opportunity for the city to shine and take big steps towards the bright future of consistent event activation.
So get your concert blankets ready for a night of folksy frolicking. Tickets are already on sale and range between $32 and $41.
