The Magnetic Fields will play Eventim Apollo on Wednesday 31 August.
Built around the nonpareil songwriting of Stephin Merritt, The Magnetic Fields became one of the most important and representative groups of the indie rock genre. Marked by a flare for tender melodies, acerbically witty lyrics, and uncluttered arrangements, the band evolved from the stripped-down synth pop of their early albums into more organic readings of Merritt’s intelligent songcraft.
The concert will feature a setlist spanning the band’s three-decade career, including material from their earliest albums in the 1990s and their iconic triple-album 69 Love Songs. Lead singer/songwriter Stephin Merritt will be joined by Magnetic Fields’ members Sam Davol, Shirley Simms, Chris Ewen, and Anthony Kaczinski.
