Bill Labounty in concert in Paris

Music news

Flagship artist of the American soft rock scene, Bill Labounty is preparing to give two concerts at New Morning (Paris), on December 6 and 7.

Extremely rare in France, the legend of American soft rock Bill Labounty will make a long enough stop in the Capital to give two concerts at New Morning. See you this Wednesday, December 6 and Thursday, December 7 to enjoy the compositions of this cult artist, active since the end of the 70s.

He is the author of several standards, notably “This Night Won’t Last Forever”, released in 1978 on the album of the same name, which was his first single to rank in the American charts. This title was covered the following year by the American country and folk artist Michael Johnson, then by the country group Sawyer Brown in the 2000s. Among the other memorable titles he signed, we find in particular “Lie to Me » (1976), “In 25 Words or Less” (1978) or even “Never Gonna Look Back”.

Although he himself then turned to country music in the 80s, he nevertheless retains the status of a cult artist in the world of soft rock. His clear voice and his inimitable feeling will not fail to convince both the curious and the experts during his next two appearances on New Morning.

The group Dr. Wu will be present to open the ball and will perform the Steely Dan repertoire in a faithful and diligent manner.

Reservations are open :
