My year in lists- die besten Konzerte von Angelo Misterioso (Rockerparis)

Der legendäre Rocker Angelo Misterioso liebt es groß. "Big is beautiful" so seine Devise. Demzufolge war er logischerweise bei den ganz fetten Shows mit dabei, sogar bei den Stones bei ihrem spektakulären Club Gig im Trabendo vor lediglich 700 Leuten. Auf der Webseite von Angelo könnt ihr das Ganze mit zahlreichen Bildern und Videos genießen.

ROCKERPARIS Top Concerts for 2012- The best, the New, the Old and the worst of 2012 


The best shows, the nice surprises and the crap...of 2012. We've been to 150 rock concerts this year and we stayed in Paris for (almost) all of them excluding two shows in Lyon and Strasbourg for Guns N Roses and the Arras Main square Fest with Pearl Jam. 

1- BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN & The E Street Band. @ Paris Bercy @ Paris Bercy July 4 & July 5 2012 

Without a doubt BRUCE is the BOSS of 2012 2 Fantastic shows @ Paris Bercy Arena, both shows Sold-out with 18000 people screaming like one man. each show lasted more than 3h40 min. First Tour without the Big Man. The second show being the best and each time we had a terrific "seat" in da pit down the front. the video below speaks for itself: 

2- The ROLLING STONES @ Trabendo club, Théatre Mogador and rehearsals 

The celebration for the 50th anniversary were nowhere to be seen and suddenly the Rolling Stones were everywhere, it started with the recording of two songs at the end of August in Suresnes then the band started rehearsing just outside Paris on Oct 1st for more than a month. They've played one club show @ Trabendo on Oct 25 which was a dream come true: seeing the Stones in a 500 capacity club, Then it was a private show for bankers @ 1500 capacity Theatre Mogador on Oct 29. The best was yet to come when they invited us at their penultimate rehearsals on Nov 08 another dream come true seeing The Rolling Stones at work for more than 50 min. A "mini-Trabendo" as Mick Jagger called it. 

3- JACK WHITE @ L'album de la semaine for Canal +, April 20 @ Cigale April 22 & RTL Radio Show on July 03rd

Not only he had one of the best album of 2012 with "Blunderbuss" but the man is going on Tour with two different bands ( one male band and one female band). We were lucky to get both bands at the Canal+ tv show in front of just 150 people. The Cigale show was terrific, Ice on the cake was a private 30 min showcase for a 100 people at RTL radio in the afternoon of July 03rd. I'm still wondering why we didn't attend both his shows @ Olympia Hall on July 03 & 04. 

4- GUNS N ROSES @ Paris Bercy June 05 , Halle Tony Garnier June10, Zénith Strasbourg June 11 No matter what the critics are saying, this "Guns N Roses" or Axl Rose's band IS terrific on stage more than 2h30 min on stage lots of great songs including the one from "Chinese Democracy" and AXL on top form. 

5- BLUE OYSTER CULT @ Montereau June 09 A classic band , Classic songs even though there are only two original members Lou Reed opened and was horrible 

Then in no particular order: 

GRANDADDY @ Rock en Seine The band was back together & it was our first time for us 

METALLICA + The Kills @ Stade de France May 12 Maybe not their best show ( Sonisphere was fantastic with the big Four in 2011) but we were in the pit down the front once again so the view was top. The Kills were booed off stage 

IGGY & THE STOOGES @ Casino de Paris Private show for a beer brand, not really THE Stooges as there is only Iggy from the original line-up but still kicking ass and we went ON stage for this one, our second time as we already went on stage with The Stooges @ Fete de l'Humanité in front of 50 000 people a few years ago. 

MILES KANE @ Cigale April 20, @ Arras in June, @ Casino de Paris Jan 30 opening for Arctic Monkeys. Once again Miles played several shows in Paris promoting his first solo album, each time with class 


The Musical Box @ Olympia Genesis cover band : worst piece of shit I have even seen, nothing to with the band but the music ... 

James Iha @ Maroquinerie was a joke
