Interpol to Rock the House at Forest Hills Stadium this Fall

May 3, 2017 By Jason Cohen

Interpol, who was an integral part of the New York City indie music scene in the 2000s, will perform at Forest Hills Stadium in the fall.

Interpol will celebrate the 15th anniversary of their debut album “Turn On the Bright Lights,” by playing that album’s lineup in its entirety at Forest Hills Stadium on Sept. 23 and LA Historic State Park in Los Angeles on Sept. 30. Since its release in 2002, the album has sold more than one million copies.

The two concerts will be the only North American performances of “TOBL,” and the group will be joined by two other rock bands.

Interpol began in New York in 1997, when guitarist Daniel Kessler recruited bassist Carlos Dengler and singer/guitarist Paul Banks to form a band. In 2002, with Sam Fogarino on drums, the band signed to Matador Records and released “Turn On the Bright Lights,” which made it to 10th position on New Musical Express’s list of 2002’s top releases while Pitchfork named it the year’s number one album.

The band is working on new material for a sixth album that is projected to come out next year.

Tickets go on sale May 5 at 10 a.m. and will be available for purchase here. The shows start at 6:30 p.m. with doors opening at 5 p.m.
