    The first time Bobby Bazini heard a crowd scream his name, it was at the Dovecote, in the framework of the FEQ, after the launch of his first album. “I’ll always remember “, recalls the singer, who will tread the same stage for a 3rd time in career, on Wednesday night.

    The summer Festival has been one of the first festivals where Bobby Bazini has played, with his first tour. He remembers that the rain had shortened his delivery, but the crowd, she wanted more.

    Since then, Bobby Bazini broke the site during his second spell at the Dovecote, in 2014. The following year, the FEQ offered him the first part of Keith Urban on the Plains. “It was sick,” he says.

    For his show of Wednesday night, we would have reason to expect another overflow. The public reaction to his 3rd album, Summer Is Gone, is extraordinary. He filled the Grand Theatre of Quebec last February, during a performance which was full several weeks before they take place.

    All the more that he came with a paraphernalia of a dozen musicians, including a four-string.

    Same show

    “It’s still the same show Summer Is Gone, as it had done at the Grand Theatre, but the show has evolved,” he says.

    A few weeks ago, Summer Is Gone had been sold over 50 000 copies. “Every day, I try to remind myself how lucky I am to have an audience that continues to follow me. It will soon be seven years that I’ve been doing it, and I’m doing 40, 50 shows per year in the same province. I don’t take it for granted. “

    The development of the career of Bobby Bazini international is continuing this summer. He says, he should go to Europe soon.
