RAYMOND WEIL celebrates Live from the Artists Den partnership
Swiss watchmaker RAYMOND WEIL celebrated its continued partnership with the Artists Den on October 17th, in Austin, Texas, with a special performance by the French rock group, Phoenix.
In a taping of an episode of Live from the Artists Den, a televised concert series that features popular artists playing in non-tradition settings, Phoenix performed for an intimate crowd of Artists Den lottery winners as part of the show’s 7th Season which will air in 2014.
As with every Live from the Artists Den concert, this performance was a one of kind event that is memorable and inspiring. Following a main-stage set at the Austin City Limits Festival, Phoenix put on a spectacular show in the gymnasium at Austin’s own LC Anderson High School for 800 invited guests. They played jaw dropping renditions of their hits such as “Lisztomania” and “If I Ever Feel Better” as well as new songs from the most recent release “Bankrupt.” The evening closed out with the audience joining lead Thomas Mars on stage for thrilling performances of “1901” and “Rome.”
Since its launch on U.S. public television in 2009, Live from the Artists Den has become a three-time New York Emmy-nominated series which has rapidly expanded online and internationally. The Artists Den shows are unique in that they are invitation-only and free. Audience members are selected randomly from the Artists Den’s mailing list.
This concert was the 2nd installment in RAYMOND WEIL’s partnership with the Artists Den which also includes a Sheryl Crow performance at the Plaza Hotel in New York and an upcoming secret show featuring Sara Bareilles on October 24th in California.
