Live performance Evaluation: Rufus Du Sol at FPL Photo voltaic Amphitheater Miami October 23, 2022

Rüfüs Du Sol is clearly sticking round, folks.

Weeks faraway from a randomly spiraling rumor that the trio could disband — which was rapidly thwarted — the seemingly ever-rising Australian band closed its North American tour with a sold-out present at FPL Photo voltaic Amphitheater at Bayfront Park.

“I keep in mind the first-ever present we did in Miami… it was eight years in the past at this place referred to as the Electrical Pickle,” mentioned drummer James Hunt. “There have been perhaps 30 folks there. And now, for 10,000 of you to be right here with us means a lot to us.”

You would really feel the “we have made it” emotion pour from Hunt earlier than the band ripped into “Alive,” which earned a Grammy for “Finest Dance/Digital Recording “earlier this yr.

And, certainly, Rüfüs Du Sol may be very a lot alive in 2022, just lately snagging seven ARIA Awards nominations — hell, they’ve even received their very own arduous kombucha model.

Accolades and endeavors apart, Rüfüs Du Sol’s powerful-meets-chill-AF-ness was on full show on a stunning fall night in Miami on Sunday. It was crisp (OK, it was 78 levels), and there was even a hay maze adjoining to the grounds to assist set the seasonal tone.

And there was fog — tons and plenty of artifical fog that poured onto the stage as quickly because the trio set foot on it with “You Had been Proper.” By means of the night, the blokes — frontman Tyrone Lindqvist, keyboardist Jon George, and Hunt — seldom left their futuristic platforms, every loaded with synths and digital wizardry galore and anchored by clear plastic legs that illuminated throughout the night’s nonstop strobe fest.

High quality-wise, the music was on par with the studio recordings, with Lindqvist’s signature borderline rasp complementing the vibe. A spotlight got here within the type of the smash, “On My Knees,” as Lindqvist fell to his and belted the infectious hook, “Seems to be like I am on my knees once more/Feels just like the partitions are closing in.”

By means of crowd faves “Underwater,” “Sundream,” “Subsequent to Me,” and “Give up” (which bears the title of the tour and the most recent album), the viewers flowed with every beat. It was a waterlike wave of fingers and head bobs in some ways, mimicking the adjoining Biscayne Bay when people are respecting a no-wake zone.

The largest ripple throughout the 90-minute set got here from a pristinely executed efficiency of “Innerbloom” that got here proper earlier than the encore. The gang — seemingly 50 p.c of it sloppily recording all 9 minutes of it on their telephones — exploded as Lindqvist sang, “I am giving all that I’ve received.” Absolutely some telephones had been broken within the warmth of such pleasure.

“I can not consider a greater place to finish this tour,” Lindqvist mentioned glowingly. “It is heat right here, and you’ve got been so heat to us. We’re blessed to be right here.”

And, on that be aware, and a yr faraway from the band’s headlining III Factors gig, we’re blessed that Rüfüs Du Sol continues to indicate Miami a lot love.
