If you’re a music fan living in or around Montreal, then we hope you have a great time going to concerts in 2017. Here are ten upcoming concerts in Montreal that we are eagerly anticipating.
January 28th – Théâtre Fairmount
Why we’re excited: These Cleveland punks have been a little quiet since their last album, 2014’s “Here and Nowhere Else.” Thankfully, they have a new album and hopefully some unforgettable concerts to go along with it.
January 31st – Théâtre St-Denis
Why we’re excited: Mogwai’s brand of post-rock is cinematic, so it’s only fitting that they’ll be performing their soundtrack score to the documentary “Atomic: Living in Dread and Promise” live.
March 6th – Metropolis
Why we’re excited: The legendary Police frontman has developed a solo career that rivals his beloved band’s work. We can’t wait to see all the hits he performs.
BRING ME THE HORIZON
March 17th – Stade Uniprix
Why we’re excited: Alternative Press recently named Bring Me The Horizon the Best International Band and they continue to play bigger and bigger venues worldwide with their intense yet uplifting live show. They’ve been named as one of the only metal bands likely to headline festivals in the future.
March 17th – Bell Centre
Why we’re excited: Grande made good on her momentum as a rising pop star with the recent release of the Grammy-nominated Dangerous Woman, her best album to date. We expect Grande to bring down the house at the Bell Centre in March.
March 22nd – Bell Centre
Why we’re excited: Green Day are great at a lot of things, but something they truly excel at is making powerful music in politically divisive times. We hope for a powerful concert experience from them.
KING GIZZARD & THE LIZARD WIZARD
April 4th – Théâtre Fairmount
Why we’re excited: This Australian psychedelic outfit has an extensive back catalogue and energetic, unforgettable live shows. (Plus, they have an absolutely awesome band name.)
April 9th – Cafe Campus
Why we’re excited: In their native UK Biffy Clyro headline festivals and sell out arenas. When they visit Montreal they’ll be playing a room that holds just 600 people. One day you’ll say “I was there!”
May 30th – Bell Centre
Why we’re excited: Abel Tesfaye went from underground R&B artist to a bonafide pop superstar. We can’t wait to see on this latest run of dates.
RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS
June 20th – Bell Centre
Why we’re excited: Not only do the Chilli Peppers have an extensive and envious back catalogue, with classics like “Under the Bridge” and “Scar Tissue,” they also have a new album, The Getaway with jams like “Dark Necessities.”
August 8th & 9th – Bell Centre
Why we’re excited: Coldplay has been a consistently strong band, ever since they first broke out with their hit song “Yellow.” With mesmerizing ballads like “Clocks” and “Speed of Sound,” we know that Chris Martin and company are able to hold our attention.
August 29th and 30th – Bell Centre
Why we’re excited: Mars is a bonafide crooner and key contributor to one of the biggest pop hits in recent memory in “Uptown Funk.” With that said, a great show from him seems like a foregone conclusion.
