Live Music at Olympia Hall 2018
6 December 2017
Hip Hop Heavyweights, Pop Icons & Revered Rock N Rollers
Since opening its doors in 1888, Olympia Hall has hosted most of music’s greats; with The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Miles Davis, Black Sabbath, Arctic Monkeys, The Cure, Ray Charles, Blondie and Jimi Hendrix just some to have graced its iconic stage. Not forgetting the 18 day residency The Beatles enjoyed here in 1964! So, who will be adding to the venue’s illustrious history in 2018!?
Oh, and did we mention? Olympia Hall is situated just a five minute walk from Amarante Beau Manoir!

Having performed in Paris as recently as June, Hayley Williams and co. must really like it here, because they’re back in January to light up L’Olympia!
2017 was an enormous year for the emo icons, which saw them gallivanting to all corners of the globe on a series of sell-out tours. But, the year will be best remembered by fans for the release of After Laughter - the band’s critically-acclaimed, fifth studio album.
Leaving behind the guitar-driven sorrow of previous records, new tracks like Hard Times and Pool unveil a surprisingly optimistic, sun-soaked outlook from Paramore. Though die-hards need not fret! Angsty anthems like Misery Business, Brick By Boring Brick and That’s What You Get will of course, still be out in force.

20 years after blistering breakthrough Word Gets Around, Stereophonics are showing no signs of slowing down, with tenth studio album Scream Above The Sounds due to hit shelves in October 2017.
Coinciding with their latest release, on the evening expect to hear a selection of newfangled tracks - which at current we know little about, except that frontman Kelly Jones has promised an eclectic, anthemic record! What we do know, however, is that his vocals will be sounding at their raspy Rod Stewart-esque best on arms aloft anthems like Dakota, C’est La Vie and The Bartender And The Thief; and on melodic, mesmeric numbers like Maybe Tomorrow and Mr Writer.

Since being the first artist to sign to Drake’s OVO Sound in 2013, PartyNextDoor has established himself as a key player in the R&B scene - releasing three studio albums, receiving a Grammy nomination for Come and See Me, and even finding the time to pen the smash hit Work, for Rihanna and Drake.
But as we head into 2018, PartyNextDoor will be looking to step out of his countryman’s shadow, with the release of Club Atlantis. At current little is known about the album, but PND has been teasing new music on Twitter with Ne-Yo, T-Pain and Kanye West! So expect big things in Paris, where the singer/songwriter/rapper/producer extraordinaire will also be joined by Jessie Reyez - another Toronto artist to look out for in 2018!

Fresh off the back of a trailblazing 2017, Danny O’Donoughe and his fellow Dubliners are heading back on the road in 2018, where they will play Paris’ Olympia Hall as part of a mammoth worldwide tour!
It’s no secret that fifth studio album Freedom Child divided opinion, as the multi-platinum band abandoned their stereotypical smoother ballads for a choppier genre-spanning sound. But, needless to say, The Script are best defined by their bolstered backcatalogue - with Breakeven, Hall of Fame and The Man Who Can’t Be Moved just a few of the classics you can expect to hear on the evening, alongside the soaring melodies of new tracks Rock The World and Arms Open.
Hopefully the boys will stick around for St. Patrick’s Day as well!

Liam Gallagher has frequently voiced his admiration for John Lennon, so it’s no surprise he should choose Olympia Hall as the venue for his latest Paris date!
Since embarking on his solo venture, LG has readily reclaimed his perch at the top of the Rock N Roll roost - with As You Were smashing the album charts, while his worldwide tour has been selling-out at a supersonic pace.
Perhaps it is the opportunity to hear masterworks like Slide Away, Morning Glory and Wonderwall in the flesh which has fuelled his emphatic comeback. But credit where it’s due, new singles Wall of Glass, For What it’s Worth and Greedy Soul are rather good!
Interestingly, April will also see Noel play Olympia Hall! So, here’s to hoping their paths cross and all is swept under the carpet.

Hailed as a driving-force in the revival of West Coast rap, there’s no denying Jayceon Taylor’s stance as a hip hop heavyweight. Although in recent years, The Game has been more likely to ignite ‘du boeuf’ with fellow rappers, rather than releasing hard-hitting anthems like those of 2005’s timeless The Documentary.
That said, whenever The Game walks onto the stage, people stand and take note; and with anthems like 100, One Blood, Dreams, My Life, How We Do and Hate It Or Love It among his arsenal, it’s hardly surprising.
Recently, rumours have been flying around that the rapper’s next album could be his last, meaning this may be the last opportunity to see The Game in Paris before he hangs up the mic! Therefore. Don’t miss this evening with one of hip hop’s greats.
