Michel Rivard – Around the block
The songwriter wanted to celebrate his 50 years of musical career in style with a new tour where he will be accompanied by eleven musicians. “We wanted to pay for the draft!” he told us. On January 27 and 28, 2023, at the Théâtre Maisonneuve in Montreal, and on March 4, at the Grand Théâtre de Québec.
Blue Jeans Blue – Minou Top
New album and new show for the colorful band that doesn't take itself seriously. Blue will still be featured, with several pops of pink this time around. Still expect a lot of histrionics and jingles that stick in your head.
January 27, at Club Soda in Montreal, and January 28, at the Imperial Bell.
Alicia Moffet – Intertwine
The 24-year-old pop singer released a mini-album in the spring that was a hit on streaming platforms.
Here she is embarking on a major tour across the province. February 2, at the MTelus in Montreal, and February 23 and 24, at the Impérial Bell in Quebec.
Ludovick Bourgeois – Dreamer
After a tour of more than a hundred dates, which allowed him to conquer the hearts of thousands of spectators, the songwriter returns with a new album that he will once again defend on stage in the four corners of the province.
February 10, at Club Dix30 in Brossard, and April 12, at Salle Albert-Rousseau in Quebec City.
Isabelle Boulay – From America and France
For many years, Isabelle Boulay has been going back and forth between Quebec and France. To underline his half-century of life and his 30 years of profession, the interpreter has prepared a show between his two loves: folk-country America and the great French song. February 10 and 11, at the Théâtre Capitole in Québec, and June 10, at the Théâtre Maisonneuve in Montréal.
The Boulay sisters – Escape the night
It is a more vitaminized album that the two sisters launched this year, with Échapper à la nuit. We bet that these sometimes dancing pop sounds will be found in the new show they will present to the Quebec public.
April 20, at Club Dix30 in Brossard, and October 13, at the Grand Théâtre de Québec.
Daniel Lavoie – Tension attention - 40 years old

It is in February that the rapper will launch his expected new album, Zayon. For the occasion, he will treat himself to two large-scale launch shows. On April 8, he set fire to Place Bell in Laval. On April 22, he will do the same at the Videotron Center in Quebec.
Roxane Bruneau – Acrophobia
Named female performer at the ADISQ gala for two years in a row, Roxane Bruneau enjoys success across Quebec. The songwriter, however, had never played in large arenas. She will remedy the situation in the spring.

Four years after Lots of Fun, the band have returned with a acclaimed new album. Supported by titles such as Internet, Shepherd's Pie and Above-ground Pool, the Présence d'esprit disc will provide pleasant moments on this new tour.
