The xx To Play Eden Session

news - The XX

Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 2:13pm 17th December 2012.

The xx will headline an Eden Session on Tuesday July 2, 2013.

They join comedian Eddie Izzard, who plays on Monday June 3, on next summer’s line-up at the Eden Project, with more acts to be announced soon.

The xx released their second studio album Coexist this September and hit the top of the UK album charts as well as making it into the US top ten.

Coexist follows the London trio’s eponymous platinum-selling debut album which won the Mercury Music Prize in 2009.

Last year they were nominated in three categories at the BRIT Awards – Best British Band, Best British Album and Best British Breakthrough.

They have a reputation for powerful live performances and their show at this year’s Bestival drew what is said to be the largest crowd in the history of the festival.

Martin Williams, Eden Project Marketing Director, said:

“We are thrilled to be able to announce an act of such a high calibre for the 2013 Eden Sessions. We’re very excited to be hosting The xx, especially considering that we are one of just a handful of summer gigs they will be playing.”

Tickets go on sale to Inside Track members on Monday December 17 and on general sale on Thursday January 3.
