A report Monday (1/26) on UK music magazine NME’s website states, “M83 have announced a co-headlining performance with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra in Los Angeles in March. The musicians are set to perform at Los Angeles’ Walt Disney Concert Hall on March 7. This will be [French electro-pop band] M83’s debut performance with an orchestra, and at the Disney Hall. The concert will pair M83 mastermind Anthony Gonzalez in a programme that features three sets: the Los Angeles Philharmonic performing orchestral pieces chosen in collaboration with M83; M83 performing solo material; and the Philharmonic performing a selection of songs with M83, featuring orchestral arrangements by Sean O’Loughlin, who also wrote the arrangements for the Los Angeles Philharmonic with Belle & Sebastian and The Decemberists.”
