Untitled-1

18:32 vrijdag 4 april 2014 in Highlight, Live, Review by larissalambooy

Belgian’s own megastar Stromae filled a formidable two hour show at the HMH in Amsterdam on April 2nd. A show in which he mesmerized the audience of every age with both theatre, dance and his captivating voice. The rip-roaring skinny Stromae took the stage accompanied by his four piece band all wearing knee socks and bowler hats. Being one of the most in demand artists right now, many wondered if he would take it to the limit. What the Belgian maestro showed was nothing more than a fantastic performance full of showmanship.

Formed in 2010 and supporting The Horrors in 2011, a bright future could be seen for the band, especially since The Horrors hadn’t released a record since 2011. But is there more to it than just a soundalike? Jimmy Alter were to find out in the small hall of the Paradiso!

The boys from England migrated from prestigious but smaller stages such as Paradiso, Amsterdam to the HMH.

Live Review: Beady Eye at Paradiso – nostalgia over quality

18:16 zondag 2 maart 2014 in Highlight, Live, Review, Shows by Roland Benjamins

We all know the story of Beady Eye. In 2009, the never-ending fight between brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher was at its boiling point, and so Oasis, one of the most influential britpop bands of the nineties, split right before their Rock en Seine performance in France. Both brothers went different ways; Noel started his own band under the name ‘Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’, while Liam formed ‘Beady Eye’ together with all other former Oasis bandmates. Since this year, former Kasabian-guitarist Jay Mehler has joined the band on bass to form a 6-piece live band. Jimmy Alter went to the Paradiso to see where Beady Eye stands now!
