A Concert for Plebs
Hubert Felix Thiefaine
For those of you who have not heard of Hubert-Felix Thiefaine, he is the French equivalent of Bob Dylan. The pop/rock music star is considered to be a a 'tormented, discreet and realistic poet', and is currently on his Homo Plebis Ultimae Tour. Thiefaine will make his London debut on the 27th June at Bush Hall, with tickets costing £22. The doors will open at 7.30pm, and it is your chance to get a taste of French music beyond the Eurovision Song Contest (where most the songs are sung in English anyway).
In Latin, 'homo plebis' means 'man of the people', which is possibly how Thiefaine sees himself when touring worldwide. He will be performing songs from his award winning album Suppléments de mensonge , including La Ruelle des Morts.
At most his concerts, fans will typically sing-a-long with him, which puts everyone in high spirits. Admittedly that might be a little difficult this time round, but the appearance of fresh blood and a unique show is sure to get crowds cheering just as loudly.
