Following its premiere at MIF13, Manchester International Festival is taking The xx In Residence to New York.
The xx played 18 of their smallest shows ever in a secret location somewhere underneath the city for just 60 people. Technically complex yet emotionally direct, the shows were an extraordinary experience for all involved. As a spectacular counterpoint to these shows, the band also played one night at The Ritz for 1500 people.Commissioned by Manchester International Festival.
‘Even on a normal stage, The xx make an audience feel like eavesdroppers. Here, they make you feel like royalty.’MAIL ON SUNDAY
