      Presented by the Mann & AEG Live

      All Ages

      Indie rockers The xx perform live at the Skyline Stage @ the Mann on May 17th in support of their highly anticipated third album I See You in stores January 13th.

      "The record sounds triumphant and celebratory,” says Jamie, of their third long-player, I See You,” but the journey we went on and what we had to go through to get to this point should be acknowledged.” I See You is the spoils of four hard years’ labour, a vertiginous new height scaled for the pop group. It is a record that sees them performing with optimum new nerve, transparency and clarity. Because it is made by The xx, its implicit boldness is sculpted from a tough and tender space, one which stretched its limits for expansion against the core musical aesthetic Romy and Oliver first found as 16-year-olds playing on a stage together. “What makes us sound like us isn’t intentional,” says Oliver. “What always surprises me,” says Jamie, “is when they just play the two instruments together they come up with things that I could never come up with, so simple that I wish I could. That particular guitar sound and Oliver’s bass playing will always create this mood which I love and which I can’t imagine ever getting bored of.”

      Tickets are on sale now via MannCenter.org, Ticketmaster.com, 800-745-3000, the Mann Box Office or AEGLive.com.
