Upcoming gigs

Here are some of the next shows we'll be covering in the upcoming months. Hope to see some of you there!

Canadian rock sensation JJ Wilde is playing her first French concert at la Maroquinerie. Expect a muscular, high octane, yet melodic rock show. You can get your tickets HERE.

Nearly three years after having brought down the house with Jonny Lang and Kris Barras, Walter Trout and his  Fender Stratocaster are returning to Paris to treat us to an evening of fiery blues rock and incendiary guitar licks. A veritable road warrior, a seasoned veteran of the rock n'roll wars, the Texas guitarist has a new lease on life and is wasting no time releasing one fantastic album after another and touring the world. The new one is called Ordinary Madness, and it's killer.

While her former bandmates in Nightwish are embarking on a world tour to support their Human: II : Nature  Tarja is promoting In The Raw, showcasing her more Metal leanings. Do not pass the opportunity to catch one of the originators of a style that has spawned many imitators.

Simple Minds are celebrating four decades of a career that has proven both popular and demanding. Hits like Don't You (Forget About Me), Sanctify Yourself, All The Things She Said or Mandela Day have acquired legendary status and have been the life soundtrack of nearly three generations.

A veritable musical shapeshifter, the young bass wizard known as Thundercat mixes Jazz Fusion, Funk, Hip-Hop, Electronica with a virtuosic technique and an absurdist sense of humor and some truly memorable hooks. He's collaborated with artists as diverse as Flying Lotus, Suicidal Tendencies, Kendrick Lamar or Kamasi Washington. His new album It Is What It Is, has won the Best Progressive R&B Album at the last Grammy Awards.

Sparks are more current than ever, thanks to their recent album A Steady Drip, Drip, Drip, the Edgar Wright documentary The Sparks Brothers and the movie Annette which they wrote and was directed by Leos Carax. With the numerous postponements due to the pandemic, it will have been almost half a decade since we last saw them headline a show in the French capital and that is way too long for a band that loves this city almost as much as it loves them.

Well into their sixth decade of existence, Deep Purple soldiers on. Their recent albums, produced by the legendary Bob Ezrin, have been absolutely excellent and prove that you can be a legacy band and still retain a level of creativity usually associated with youth. On stage, they always deliver the goods and the current line-up is the longest  lasting one the group has ever had. Absolute legends and an utterly unmissable show.

Last time Fantastic Negrito played here in Paris he turned the New Morning into a sweltering pit of funk. We're looking forward to him bringing his smorgasbord of blues, soul, punk and pop onto the stage on one of the most venerable theaters in the city. This show has been postponed twice for obvious reasons, so needless to say the anticipation is high!

His new single Root City is a groovy, infectious tune which you can check out HERE.

The greatest American Rock N' Roll band finally returns to our shores 12 years after their last visit, so it's beyond time for them to show a whole new generation how it's done. After almost half a century of existence and one of the greatest repertoires in the business, the original line-up of Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Brad Whitford, Tom Hamilton and Joey Kramer will deliver a typically roaring, energetic set on a stage they know well, since this will be their sixth time at the newly rebranded Accor Arena. And as a bonus, the excellent Rival Sons will be opening the show. Rock N' Roll!

Drive-By Truckers @ La Maroquinerie - June 15, 2022

We're very excited to finally welcome on our shores a band we've admired for years: mixing Southern Rock with an quasi punk-rock sensibility, the Drive-By Truckers have recorded some absolute monster albums, our favorites of which are Decoration Day, the Dirty South, Southern Rock Opera and their latest masterpiece, 2020's The New OK. Equally at ease on ferocious rockers or delicate, country-tinged ballads, the band will play an intimate rock club in the northeast of the city on what promises to be an exciting date.

Faith No More was unexpectedly reactivated once again, and this is great news for fans of bold, adventurous music. Metal, Funk, Punk, Soul, Alternative... these guys refuse to be pigeonholed and the only certainty is that whatever they do is that it's going to be excellent. By the time they play the show at the Zénith, it'll have been over thirty years since we last saw them so it'll begged to finally catch up.

Four years after annihilating Paris two night in a row, Iron Maiden finally returns to complete their Legacy of the Beast Tour. Their new album Senjutsu will not be featured however, this is an exclusively retrospective affair. Expect all the hits and classics of the world's mightiest Heavy Metal band as well as a slew or surprises and a mind blowing stage show. Up the Irons!

Last surviving member of the original band, Angry Anderson is still waving the Australian Blooze-Rock flag proudly with new band members, including Mark Evans, formerly of that other hard rock band from Australia. Real, authentic music from a rock and roll lifer.

Get your tickets HERE.

The two Parisian dates of Blue Öyster Cult are a rare treat, as they haven't been here since a memorable double bill with Uriah Help at the Olympia back in 2009. It'll be good to finally hear their numerous classics again (including hopefully my personal favorite Astronomy), as well as selections from their first new record in nearly twenty years The Symbol Remains and once again witness Eric Bloom and Buck Dharma set the city on flame with their rock and roll.
