Phoenix take merch-selling vending machine on tour

The band debuted the machine at their performance at the Fillmore in Miami.

Phoenix began their world tour on Friday (May 12), kicking things off at the Fillmore in Miami.

The band created new merchandise for the tour, revealing that they will be selling it via a bespoke vending machine.

Showcasing the machine on their Instagram account, fans will be able to purchase apparel and more through the vending machine. You can see it in action below.


The band are touring in support of their upcoming album ‘Ti Amo’. Set for release on June 9, it serves as their first new material since 2013 album ‘Bankrupt!’

The French four-piece teased their return in November 2016 by cryptically updating social media pages before finally releasing first track ‘J-Boy’ last month (April 28).

In a press release, Phoenix say the new 10-track album contains “simple, pure emotions: love, desire, lust, and innocence.” It’s a record that sees the band embracing their “European, Latin roots.” They describe “a fantasized version of Italy: a lost paradise made of eternal Roman summers (hyper-light, hyper-clarity, pistachio gelato), jukeboxes on the beach, Monica Vitti and Marcello Mastroianni, fearless desire and antique marble statues.”


In addition to their headlining tour, the band have confirmed slots at Nos Alive in Portugal, Bilbao BBK Festival, and The Governors Ball, the latter of which is held in New York City.
