Mastodon have been at the forefront of Heavy Metal for over twenty years now. Progressive, psychedelic, melodic and very heavy, their new album Hushed and Grim is another masterful slab of molten metal. They will be playing quite a few excerpts from that record, as well as some of their classics.

Steve Vai has been one of the best, most innovative guitarists in the rock world for forty years. But he is much more than a mere shredder: he is an endlessly creative composer and a consummate showman. This Paris date will see him perform a few songs on the new instrument he's invented and introduced on his new album Inviolate. The Hydra is a multi-neck guitar, bass and harp hybrid on which Vai's jaw-dropping virtuosity will no doubt melt all of the faces in attendance.

Israel Nash @ la Maroquinerie - June 14, 2022

Israel Nash is an Americana singer/songwriter in the vein of Jason Isbell and Tom Petty. He will be presenting his latest album Topaz at the Maroquinerie. 

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 the just-released new album Welcome 2 Club XIII. 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.

Three years after setting the Point Éphémère on fire, the Sheepdogs return to Paris to bring their brand of sun-drenched Southern Rock to the French capital. They have just released another phenomenal record called Outta Sight which will no doubt be prominently featured.

Four years after annihilating Paris two night in a row, Iron Maiden finally returns to complete their Legacy of the Beast Tour. Unlike the first legs of the tour, this jaunt won't be an exclusively retrospective affair and will feature a few songs from their excellent new album Senjutsu. 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!

The Rolling Stones are celebrating 60 years by playing a few European dates. The trek is bittersweet, as it is the first time they play without beloved drummer Charlie Watts who died last August. Don't miss the opportunity to see the World's GreatestRock n' Roll Band on what could be one of their last tours.

Jeff Beck is a legend. One of Rock's best guitarists with an endlessly fascinating career, he is equally at ease playing Jazz, Blues, Rockabilly... A Jeff Beck concert is always an event. Don't miss out!

Lettuce is a Funk band from Boston, MA that has been active for thirty years. If you like Tower of Power, the Ohio Players and the likes, then check out Lettuce at the Alhambra in September.

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 Heep 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.

While her former bandmates in Nightwish are touring the world in support of Human: II : Nature, Tarja is touring behind her most recent record 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.

Over four 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.
