A few words and we have the song in my head. To remedy this, it is enough to come and sing on the 17th of February in Saint-Georges, whereas the group that The Chicane will be coming to the Salle Alphonse-Desjardins du Cégep Beauce-Appalaches with her show “20 years ago”.

In the course of the evening, fans can cheer on the greatest success of The Chicane, but also the songs that have made known Boom Desjardins, Dany Bédard and Yanik Boivin in their solo careers.

Moreover, it is the latter who provide the first part of the show with songs from his album “Hey!”, released on November 17.

“It will be songs that people know. They have not been forgotten. It’s just fun,” said Boom Desjardins.

The tour began in the summer of 2017. The training has then travelled over 21,000 kilometres in order to offer 34 shows between the months of June and September.

“You can’t ask for more. We had record crowds at festivals. It was one of my best summers,” said Boom Desjardins.

Bassist of the group and a native of the Beauce, Éric Maheu was very happy to see that children know by heart the lyrics of the songs because of their parents.

“Our songs have become timeless. The rock, it is aging really well. We wanted to wait for the right moment to get back together. We had to have fun for this to be true on stage,” believes Eric Maheu.

During an interview with the newspaper a year ago, he had also promised that The Chicane would provide at least a show in the Beauce region. The group will also provide representation in Sainte-Marie on the 16th of February.

“Despite what I’ve done, it’s always fun to go back where I come from and to review the public and my old buddies. We are going to play where it all began for me,” recalls Éric Maheu.

“We let go by the wave. It’s good to reconnect with rooms full. We consider ourselves very lucky,” adds Boom Desjardins.

To be in this wave, the tickets are on sale at a cost of $ 39 at the box office of the Lovers of the Stage (11740, 3rd Avenue), by phone at 418 228-2455 or on the site of the Lovers of the Stage.
