    So, Sunday night, Plastic Bertrand will propose to the quebec public a spectacle of scale, which will bring together twenty of his songs, including the success It flat for me, Stop or even and Any small planet.

    “All the tubes will be there, but I also decided to take a risk by putting songs less well-known that I’ve recorded with Xavier Caffeine,” he said. There will be a sound enough rock. It will be moving. It is not in the small orchestration of varieties. It is in the rock’n’roll pure and hard, but in my own way, with a bit of lag and a sense of humour. “

    Plastic Bertrand started working on a tenth studio album, which will likely see the light of day next year. “I wanted to come out last year, but as I did 120 dates of concerts, it has been delivered. I have the impression that my life is a tour. I don’t like it ! “
