Ghost | Place Bell | Montreal Event Photographer

Swedish band Ghost brought their elaborate and theatrical tour to Laval’s Place Bell last night. Papa and his Nameless Ghouls, as per usual, put on an entertaining set, their Imperatour has been well received. Place Bell was nearly as full as you could have it, and having powerhouse openers like Mastodon and Spiritbox does help.… Continue reading Ghost | Place Bell | Montreal Event Photographer

My Chemical Romance | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

It had been 12 years since My Chemical Romance had taken the stage in Montreal. The highly anticipated reunion tour packed in the Bell Centre. The energy and intensity was as it had been in the band‘s prime. I was pleasantly surprised to see a varied mix of ages in the crowd. Thinking My Chemical… Continue reading My Chemical Romance | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

Greta Van Fleet | Bell Center | Montreal Event Photographer

Greta Van Fleet have been tagged with bringing back classic rock and roll. Early comparisons to Led Zepplin were easy, but their sound is growing, a bit more mature, a bit more their own. I was psyched to see them for the first time on stage at Montreal’s Bell Centre. Brothers Josh, Jake and Sam… Continue reading Greta Van Fleet | Bell Center | Montreal Event Photographer

IleSoniq 2022 | Recap | Montreal Event Photographer

Back for its 7th full edition (+1 redux edition last year), Montreal’s Parc Jean-Drapeau EDM festival, IleSoniq, brought in 60,000+ dancing fans over its 3 days. I’ve covered every year of IleSoniq since it began its EDM domination back in 2014. To see how big it has grown is really cool, considering the under 10k… Continue reading IleSoniq 2022 | Recap | Montreal Event Photographer

Alexisonfire | MTelus | Montreal Concert Photographer

Punk? Hardcore? Post hardcore? I get lost in the labels people assign to music. One thing is for certain, one of the longer lasting and heavier hitting bands, Alexisonfire, still knows how to deliver an intense show, 20+ years after the band first got together. Alexisonfire, or often called AOF, had 2 jammed packed back… Continue reading Alexisonfire | MTelus | Montreal Concert Photographer

Francos de Montréal 2022 | Montreal Concert Photographer

De retour depuis 2 ans d’absence en présentiel, le premier des gros festivals traditionnels de Montréal a eu lieu il y a quelques semaines. Les Francos de Montréal kicked off summer 2022 in grand style, bringing out the crowds to the Quartier des Spectacles. A great mix of new and more long standing french artistes,… Continue reading Francos de Montréal 2022 | Montreal Concert Photographer

Imagine Dragons | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

Probably one of the more entertaining pop rock bands to see live are Imagine Dragons. While around since 2008 or so, they really started to make waves in 2012 and other than appearing at Osheaga in 2013, they have only played arenas here since. Gives you a good indication to Imagine Dragons popularity in town,… Continue reading Imagine Dragons | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

Mika | Centre Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

A little over 2 years is what it took for Mika to finally entertain Montreal. After an appearance on Star Academie, the ultra energetic singer was all smiles on stage at the Bell Centre. The crowd, who brought flowers for Mika, were just as enthousiastic to hear his hits like Grace Kelly and Big Girl… Continue reading Mika | Centre Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

Ilesoniq Redux 2021

Not sure how to put into words the feeling of being at one of our major outdoor festivals again. It has been a little over 2 years for me. The last outdoor festival I worked at was Ilesoniq back in August 2019. Ilesoniq Redux, a slimmed down version where concert go-ers are set in 500… Continue reading Ilesoniq Redux 2021

Post Malone | Montreal Concert Photographer | Pierre B Photo

How do you classify an artist such as who has a stage name that was created with an online rap name generator? To say that Austin Richard Post (aka Post Malone) is a rapper isn’t enough. Posty kind of melds hip hop with country with rock and throws in a bunch of tracks while singing.… Continue reading Post Malone | Montreal Concert Photographer | Pierre B Photo

Best of 2019 concert photos

The last 12 months have been pretty intense for my concert photography. I’ve continued my 5 year working relationship with the amazing folks at Bell Media, covering shows during the year for iHeartradio, CHOM FM, Virgin Radio … and adding on board Rouge FM and Energie this past year. My summers are packed with the… Continue reading Best of 2019 concert photos

Gowan | Corona Theatre | Montreal Concert Photographer

A classic in the Canadian rock world for the last 40 years… Lawrence Gowan, known on stage as just Gowan, can still pack a venue, as was the case with the Corona Theatre. The venue had chairs all around, but by the end of the first set, the crowd was all standing. It was for… Continue reading Gowan | Corona Theatre | Montreal Concert Photographer

Jonas Brothers | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

After a little over 6 years of being officially split, the Jonas Brothers finally decided to tour together once again. The once Disney stars from the mid 2000s had some individual solo efforts over the years, but judging by the loud screams at Montreal’s Bell Centre, the fans were just a wee bit happy to… Continue reading Jonas Brothers | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

The Offspring + Sum 41 | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

Place Bell in Laval had an amazing double bill for punk rock fans last night. Legends The Offspring, along with Canadian punk rockers Sum 41, took to the stage in front of a packed arena. Presentement by local summer punk festival 77 Montreal, the evening started at an early 7pm with English punkers Dinosaur Pile-Up… Continue reading The Offspring + Sum 41 | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

Moist | Corona Theatre | Montreal Concert Photographer

It has been 25 years since Canadian rockers Moist released their multi platinum album Silver. I was 18 at the time, right smack in my first concert going phase of my life. I remember seeing them at Montreal’s Spectrum for the first time and their stage energy blew me away. I believe I have totalled… Continue reading Moist | Corona Theatre | Montreal Concert Photographer

The Chainsmokers | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

The pop EDM duo The Chainsmokers seem to come to the city at least once a year, and each and every time, the place is turned into a party. From headlining IleSoniq last year, a sold out show in 2017, The Chainsmokers were back at the Bell Centre for their World War Joy tour. The… Continue reading The Chainsmokers | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

J Balvin | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

The hugely popular Colombian reggaeton singer J Balvin made his way to Laval’s Place Bell and played in front of a packed house. While J Balvin had to step out of this year’s Osheaga lineup, he more than made up for it bringing his colourful stage (and fashion sense) to the city. Our restrictions were… Continue reading J Balvin | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

Image recap of Osheaga 2019 | Montreal Event Photographer

Returning to the newly renovated Espace 67 and Parc Jean Drapeau, Osheaga 2019 marked it’s 14th edition as one of Canada’s premiere musique and arts festival, and I also marked my 5th year as an official photographer, with 4 years prior to that as a media photographer. It is amazing seeing a festival grow…and grow…… Continue reading Image recap of Osheaga 2019 | Montreal Event Photographer

IleSoniq 2019 recap | Montreal Concert Photographer

Hard to believe that IleSoniq is only in it’s 6th year (and also my 6th year of being an official festival photographer). Montreal’s EDM festival has steadily grown each year, attracting bigger names and bigger crowds. 78,000 fans flocked to the newly revamped site. 78,000. That’s 39,000 a day (I r gooder at math). Compared… Continue reading IleSoniq 2019 recap | Montreal Concert Photographer

Backstreet Boys | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

One of the original boy bands (along with NKOTB), Backstreet Boys still put on an amazing show. Call it a nostalgia show if you want, the 5 boys – we should call them men as their ages range from 39 to 47 – typically play Montreal two nights in a row. Sadly, many fans were… Continue reading Backstreet Boys | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer
