Parisian punk-pop-outfit Nouvelle Vague return to Adelaide Festival Centre with their unique blend of dreamy French noir cool for their 15th Anniversary tour.
It was in 2004, at the height of the French Touch, that the Parisian collective, led by Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux, released its first album, taking its original concept worldwide: New Wave = Wave Bossa Nova = Nouvelle Vague.
In just a few months, Nouvelle Vague deconstructed the notion of “the cover band” and, supported by some of the most prestigious labels (Peacefrog, Luaka Bop, Rough Trade, Pias), delighted an audience that almost forgot the original versions.
With five studio albums and extensive global tours under its belt, Nouvelle Vague now celebrates its fifteenth anniversary with an Australian national tour as part of the So Frenchy So Chic series. Melodic and sensuous, don’t miss out on this captivating class act for one show only in Adelaide.
