Phoenix Mix New and Old in 'Live on Letterman' Set

French rockers turn in 44-minute performance

By |

Phoenix came to play last night on the Late Show With David Letterman, turning in a 44-minute set as part of the Live on Letterman performance series. The French rockers mixed in songs from their new album, Bankrupt! and tunes from their 2009 U.S. breakthrough Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. The band opened with the blaring synths and pounding rhythm of new tune "Entertainment," and later rolled through the poppy and upbeat "Lisztomania." Bankrupt! came out last month.
