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

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

Billie Eilish | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

I think the word phenom can be used when talking about Billie Eilish and her rise to stardom. I first caught Billie Eilish last year headlining the small stage at Osheaga. Wearing a cast (she broke her foot the night before at Lollapalooza), she still had so much energy and attitude on stage even though… Continue reading Billie Eilish | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

Why Don’t We | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

It seems that every generation has it’s boy band that packs in the concert venue, makes the teenage girls scream, and dance around all choreographed. From The Jackson 5, NKOTB, Backstreet Boys and more recently, One Direction. We haven’t had a new boy band take the stage in years, it was fun to see that… Continue reading Why Don’t We | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

Disturbed | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

Disturbed hadn’t had their own arena gig in almost 10 years in the city. The last couple of times we had them on a stage was during Heavy Montreal in 2016 and in 2011.

Beck | Place Bell | Montreal Event Photographer

He doesn’t often come to Montreal, but when he does, Beck knows how to bring the groove (well, technically he was in Laval, but close enough). How do you define Beck? Singer, songwriter, sometimes producer, once rapper, rocker, dude who plays every instrument? Either way, the guy is talented and what I personally love about… Continue reading Beck | Place Bell | Montreal Event Photographer

Styx | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

There is old school rock, and then there is Styx.  The legendary rock band, which originally got together back in 1972, has gone through some lineup changes over the years, mostly noticeably with new singer Lawrence Gowan.  Some fans believe that Styx songs should only be sung by ex-singer Dennis De Young, others like me,… Continue reading Styx | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

Thirty Seconds to Mars | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

Brothers Jared and Shannon Leto brought their little rock band Thirty Seconds to Mars to Laval’s Place Bell last night, to the delight of their fans who had flags and signs showing their love for the group.

A Perfect Circle | Place Bell | Montreal Photographer

In what is being called the rock concert of the year, “supergroup” A Perfect Circle was at Laval’s Place Bell a few nights ago.  Why a supergroup?  The singer is Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan.  The band once had rock powerhouses from various other groups such as Primus (Tim Alexander), Marilyn Manson (Twiggy) and Pixies (Paz).  The… Continue reading A Perfect Circle | Place Bell | Montreal Photographer

Hedley | Hello World Tour | Montreal Concert Photographer

2016 Juno Award nominees, 13 years as a band (11 with the current lineup), 6 albums… Canadian pop-rockers Hedley are pretty much a sure bet for live shows as well. Lead singer Jacob Hoggard seems to never run out of steam as he moves around the entire stage. The band makes for a pretty intense… Continue reading Hedley | Hello World Tour | Montreal Concert Photographer
