Upcoming Gigs

2024 is off to a great start: we already have 8 shows under our belt, and plenty more to come! Below are some of the gigs we'll be covering in the upcoming weeks/months. We will be adding more as we get confirmation from the promoters/producers/managers... Keep checking back!

Leyla McCalla and Rhiannon Giddens @ Maison des Arts (Créteil) - February 10, 2024

Sons d'Hiver has always had a demanding but satisfying line-up, and this year's curators have decided to end the festival with an exquisite evening of "folk" music with two former members of the Carolina Chocolate Drops: Leyla McCalla and Rhiannon Giddens, eminent musicians and musicologists who have built careers out of building bridges between continents, cultures and musical idioms. Simply unmissable.

As you can probably tell from their name, retro Doom rockers Lucifer have a thing for the occult. They've brought similarly-minded colleagues Attic and The Night Eternal along at Petit Bain on February 16th for what promises to be a black mass to remember. Click HERE to get tickets.

British Neo-Prog rockers The Pineapple Thief have announced a new European tour to take place next year, including a string of French datesWe last caught up with them two years ago at the Élysée-Montmartre in Paris and they are set to place that same venue on February 24th. You can get your tickets for the Paris show HERE.

Beach Fossils has been active for fifteen years yet I still tend to think of them as a new band... Their new album Bunny was released last June and it's absolutely excellent. They'll be bringing their cinematic, lo-fi alternative-rock sound to the Trabendo on February 24th.

Therion has been unleashing its unique Symphonic Death Metal upon the masses for nearly thirty-five years. They are embarking on a tour to promote part 3 of their ambitious Leviathan project which was just released last December, including a stop at La Machine in Paris. Don't miss it!

Our man Slash is keeping busy. He's just finished the Guns N' Roses 2023 tour with two shows at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles and a headlining set at Hell & Heaven Festival in Guadalajara, Mexico last November, before hitting the road again with his solo band featuring Myles Kennedy & the Conspirators in January. The tour will start in Mexico City on January 23rd and end in Paris on April 29th. We will of course be at the tour closer to report and bring you some photos from the show. Support for all dates will be from none other than Mammoth WVH.

Eric Clapton has announced two shows at the Paris Accor Arena on May 26 and 27 of next year.These will be the legendary guitarist's first Paris dates in almost exactly fourteen years when he played the very same venue with Steve Winwood on May 25th, 2010 (the private corporate gig he did a few years ago doesn't count...) so we're excited to see one of our favorite musicians on stage again.He has been very controversial lately because of his positions on the COVID vaccine, and his association with some more than unsavory characters... But on stage, with a guitar in his hands, he will put politics and other personal considerations to the side and let the music do the talking. And on that front, he has very few equals.Both concerts are very close to being sold out so don't wait to get your tickets!
