Phoenix performed last night in Indio, California as a headliner in the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. As a headliner of a festival with this one’s history, you’re essentially expected to do something wild and news-breaking. Last year, it was seeing Tupac come back to life on-stage as a hologram during Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre’s performance. This year may not be as bold, but the music created was just as fascinating: R. Kelly joined Phoenix on stage to sing his classic “Ignition (Remix)” to the sounds of Phoenix’s “1901”, which goes over so smoothly. Also, the two pieced together R. Kelly’s “I Am A Flirt” with new material from the band’s upcoming album Bankrupt!, “Chloroform” .
Watch the video for the “Ignition (Remix) / 1901” performance below.
