Exceptional! The American feminist punk rock group Le Tigre announces its first tour after 18 years of absence. The trio will perform in Paris on June 11 at the Trianon.
It’s been almost 20 years since the Americans Kathleen Hanna, JD Samson and Johanna Fateman of the group Le Tigre, authors of the iconic Deceptacon, had not occurred on stage. Their last date dates back to 2005. For the group which was formed in 1998, the concerts were not really a priority. And to tell the truth, the albums either.
After releasing three albums, The Tiger in 1999, Feminist Sweepstakes in 2002 and The Island in 2004, the girls from the electroclash supergroup kept a low profile. They separated in 2011, then announced their return in 2016 with a single song, I’m With Herin support of Hillary Clinton’s candidacy for the US presidential election against Donald Trump.
A return with great fanfare
Since then, the trio with political, queer and feminist demands has only performed in 2022 on the stage of the This Ain’t No Picnic festival near Los Angeles, alongside The Strokes, Idles, Caroline Polachek, Mac DeMarco or even Beach. House. With these brief and furtive appearances, we are not the only ones to rejoice in their return. Blondshell, whose debut album is eagerly awaited, paid tribute to them on Instagram with a band t-shirt and sound “The Tiger Cover Band”.
Good news, after Barcelona, London and Porto, the group will stop in Paris and perform on the Trianon stage on June 11, 2023.
