Hubert Lenoir goes wild | The Journal of Montreal

Hubert Lenoir waited nine months after the release of his excellent second album to find audiences in Montreal. And the long wait was worth it. In great form, the musician delivered an unleashed and determined rock performance on Tuesday in front of thousands of spectators who attended him at a major concert outside of the Francos.

In conversation with The newspaperHubert Lenoir told us that he described this concert at the Francos – probably the biggest of his career – as “a mixture of a film by donkey and a rock concert.

We had that… from the first song! Hubert appeared on the screens, which were filmed by a handheld camera and manipulated by his accomplice Noémie D. Leclerc “à la MusiquePlus”, and had a sip of beer backstage before going on stage. He wore a fluorescent yellow striped jacket and an NFB cap.

  • Listen to Anaïs Guertin-Lacroix’s cultural chronicle on QUB radio:

As he entered the stage, the singer set the tone for the concert with loud shouts. The musician jumped around and played a very rocking version of golden days. Then his musicians let off steam in a long jam with almost grunge accents, in which Hubert did body surfing on the crowd. We remember we were only on the first song!

New parts

After a short stop monthly freestylethe rhythm picked up again from the next track, Sunday night. Here, too, the singer and his musicians have put together a much rockier, sometimes even punkier version than on the album PICTURA DE IPSE: Direct music. Several spectators pushed their way into the crowd mosh pit.

i’m back baby ! introduced Hubert to the public who finally saw him again after the singer had toured the United States and France. The Place des Festivals was also quite crowded on this great Tuesday night that looked like August.

And what an unforgettable memory we had! The singer sang PHASEfrom his latest album before offering disco music to the public!

So we heard in the loudspeakers of Flo Rida and Timbaland artists who – that remains to be checked – have probably never played at Francos. It was enough to move the party to the Place des Francos.

After about fifteen minutes of dance-pop music and as part of the audience started to leave, Hubert reappeared to do his best Start anew. A perfect end to an evening that you won’t soon forget.

Hubert Lenoir and his co-writers Félix Petit and Julyan received the SOCAN Song of the Year Award for the piece on Tuesday SECRET. “That’s good, that’s one of the best songs I’ve written,” Hubert said during the concert.
