The authentic representatives of alt-rock music from New York, the Interpol band, performs in a trench under the Military Museum at Kalemegdan as part of the world tour "Turn On The Bright Lights Anniversary Tour" on 13th August. Concert tickets are available at the price of 1.790 dinars at all box offices of Eventim network.

The band was formed in 1997 by Daniel Kessler, Carlos Dengler, Greg Drudy and Paul Banks. After only three years of existence, Greg left the company and Sam Fogarino came to his place. An important turning point in the career came with the signing of the contract for the publishing house "Matador Records" in 2002, which released the first album "Turn on the Bright Lights". The premiere of the studio edition came across great criticism and great popularity, and so far it has been sold in more than a million copies. Music from this album is considered to be the best discography of this band, and the facts that support this statement include the first place on the Pitchfork Media Top 50 Albums and the tenth position of the annual album list of the NME magazine.


Interpol continued the successful series and released the album "Antics" in 2004, "Our Love to Admire" in 2007, followed by "Interpol" in 2010, which was also the last one for Karlos Dengler, and in 2014, the album "El Pintor". The band announces a new album for the next year, again for the label "Matador Records", which is greatly being prepared in pauses between the concerts.


The music trio, composed by Paul Banks (guitar, vocals), Daniel Kessler (guitar) and Sam Fogarino (drums), this year, has started a big tour celebrating 15th anniversary since the release of the first album. Numerous audiences from this part of Europe will be able to listen to live hits like Untitled, PDA, Obsticle 1, Say Hello To The Angels and others from the releases that brought a planetary success and popularity to these guys.
