M83’s NPR performance and tour news

A few months ago NPR captured M83’s performance at the historic 9:30 Club – including the new single “Reunion” and the commanding/addictive “Midnight City.”

The music transports you back exactly to where you want to be- glowing, bathed in beautiful sound and contagious elation.

It’s the magic of M83 LIVE-traveling to a world made of dreams-where anything is possible.

M83 is Los Angeles based French artist Anthony Gonzalez.
