For over 40 years, French icons, Indochine , have led the crest of a musical wave with their unique style of genre and generation defying performances. Now, for the first time in a decade, France’s largest new-wave pioneers descend on UK shores for a rare one-off performance at London, The Roundhouse on Sunday 11 June.

Demand for the Indochine live performance experience is mammoth – rubber-stamped last year as their 2022 ‘Central Tour’ stadium tour became the first concert in the world to be filmed live for IMAX*. The film hit No.1 at the box office in 477 theaters, making it the biggest musical event ever broadcast in France. This was no mean feat, but no surprise from the band who have stood the test of time since their conception in 1981. Their single ‘L'Aventurier’ won the French awards ‘bus d'acier 1983’, and over 40 years later their album ‘Central Tour, The Movie’ smashed into the French album charts at No1 – proof that Indochine are as strong today as they were over four decades ago.

Now, for the first time since 2014, Indochine’s highly anticipated UK performance hits London, The Roundhouse, for one night only. Stalwart fans of Indochine know just how charismatic this band are live, perpetually renewing their fan-base, adding generations of audiences. At each of the concerts, the front rows are crammed with 15-year-old ‘new discoverers’ captured from recent hits such as "La vie est belle" or "Un été français". Chanting from the back rows are the loyal followers recruited from releases such as "L'aventurier" or 20 years after "J'ai demandé à la lune". It adds up in perennial strata, in combative legions. Once discovered, Indochine make an indelible mark that traverses generations – the audiences are eclectic, the performances iconic. Indochine live are nothing short of phenomenal – this London date is not to be missed!

About

  • The Central Tour IMAX concert was filmed at the Groupama Stadium in Lyon on June 25, 2022 with conception and artistic direction by Nicola Sirkis with guests Christine and the Queens, Philippe Jaroussky, Lou Sirkis, Dimitri Bodiansky and La Musique de la Garde Républicaine conducted by Captain Frédéric Foulquier
    Indochine: A keystone of France's new wave scene, pop group Indochine enjoyed enormous chart success in the mid-'80s, thanks to albums like 1983's breakout Le Péril Jaune and their acclaimed 1985 masterwork, 3. In the early 2000s the band raced to No1 with the single "J'ai Demandé à la Lune" and the 2002 album Paradize. Now firmly back in the public eye, they cemented their resurgence with 2005's Alice & June, the first of several albums that topped the French charts. As a live act, Indochine became perennial festival favorites around Europe and played a massive sold-out show at France's national soccer stadium while continuing their creative studio run with later highlights like 2013's Black City Parade and 2017's 13. In the early 2020s, they commemorated the project's 40th anniversary with a career-spanning singles collection followed by a national stadium tour.
