    Déçue! Qu'arrive-t-il à BC, vu à ses débuts très prometteurs, c'était magnifique et sensible, il semble s'égarer, nous avons eu droit, très pompeusement, à son piano qu'à la fin du concert, une bonne partie de la musique sur bande ne laissant place à aucune interprétation. Pourvu qu'il se reprenne!

  • tessthibaut

    Perfection.

  • kamiel-4

    zo simpel kan het soms zijn. Wat een stem, wat een performance. Zo mooi.

  • Wout De Beuckelaer

    Als kippenvel een goede waardemeter is dan was het fanatastisch!!! Wat een zalige stem heeft die man op blote voeten.

  • James.Haigh519889

    Musical Wizardry! Wonderful, stirring lyrics/melodies, delivered by a hugely charismatic Benjamin and gifted percussionist, Alexis (Bossard) ....a mesmerising and mischievous duo on the night . I loved it !

  • njamsin

    Brilliant!

  • Mariedao

    Une perle!

  • Kalisa Ruzindaza

    Fantastic !

  • andre.ghysen497524

    Simply great. Great artist, great character, great atmosphere. That's it !

  • vdebroux

    Great great show! It might have been even better with seated places in my opinion for that kind of atmosphere. But what a voice and piano master! Cheers to the drummer as well!

    "The people, the people, the people... and that's it." He is a man amongst the people, an angel in the crowd. He dreams, he smiles, he walks, he cries. Oh.. and he sings and makes us cry.

    Wonderful! J'étais juste devant Benjamin et c' était génial, l'impression qu'il ne jouait et ne chantait que pour moi. Comme à chaque fois, j'ai des frissons... this voice, this particular voice... Il est humble, timide et si simple et il ne doit pas changer. Excellent concert mais toujours trop court... Bonne organisation mais il faudrait une salle plus intime, plus cosy et des places assises... Bravo à Benjamine et aussi à Alexis le batteur. Dank U AB.

    Incredibly amazing concert!!!!!

  • yvandu

    Superbe concert ! Le son etait vraiment parfait. J'ai également beaucoup apprécié le respect du public, ce qui n'est pas souvent le cas à l'AB (bavardages intempestifs pendant les concerts). Un seul petit bémol; ce concert aurait du se dérouler en configuration assise.

    MAGISTRAL

  • a_n_a_i_s

    Great concert but if everyone was seated it could have been even better!

  • evano

    We first saw Benjamin Clementine at Rock en Seine in August. Despite the setting (big stage, a lot of 'festival' noise) we were impressed and we were looking forward to hearing him play in a more intimate setting. Well, he certainly didn't disappoint us - what a gig!

  • liefbollens-at-gmail-com

    Wonderfull was alleen en toch te samen, mede dankzij de ingetogenheid van de twee performers ab voor zulk een optreden toch meer zitplaatsen vereist maar toch slagen artisten er onbewust in de bomvolle zaal te bekoren! op naar het volgende concert

  • anouk_avognon

    Amazing Concert.

  • Pedro.Antunes Moreno518123

    Deux dingues. Jouissif !

  • Anne Debrabandere

    Concert extra formidable! Un chanteur super charismatique, humble, plein d'humour à la British, super voix, super présence; et un batteur hyper bon! Super complicité entre les deux artistes sur scène! Et chapeau aux ingénieurs du son, c'était parfait! MERCI l'AB, vous êtes vraiment les meilleurs!

    Expectations were high, but Every expectation got fullfilled - even better. Clementine is an amazing composer. The live drummer a rythme genius. Thanks for the great show(s)

  • Niekepiek

    What an artist and what a show. Benjamine has an incredible voice, is a poet and a performer. One of a kind. The show was intimate, emotional, magical and funny at some points. Just loved it!

  • Elise.DC512153

    Brilliant voice and an excellent performer. Just a bit too short and the room is too big to really enjoy the concert as Benjamin speaks very softly. It is difficult to hear him when you are far away making you miss a part of the experience this singer can give to his audience.

  • cruzgfe

    Très bon concert ... mais je m'attendais encore à mieux.

  • wouterdevriese

    top

  • jtang

    What an artist... emotional, beautiful, rare... have now seen him solo in front of 150 people, with a cello in front of 1000 people and with a drummer in front of 1800 people... and all three performances were unique and magical... The drummer was absolutely phenomenal... Long live Benjamin...

  • nali.trybou491072

    It was magic, one of the best performances ever seen, thoroughly enjoyed Benjamin Clementine, can't wait to see him again!

  • Léonard .Kapenda517997

    Superbe. Dialogue avec le batteur fabuleux

  • fanic

    excellent concert, un véritable artiste !!

  • martaj

    Wonderful concert, amazing voice, and his presence is absolutely magnetic. Loved the drummer too!!

  • pierre-yves-2

    Ce n'est pas pas probablement son meilleur concert, de l'avis de certains, je m'en moque c'est le premier auquel j'assiste et je dois reconnaître que c'est un grand artiste, qui accompagné d'un batteur de génie et de son piano vous transforme la soirée en moment de pur bonheur. Surement le concert que j'ai préféré cet année !

  • pousse-crotte

    Quel artiste !!! Il y met toutes ses tripes, ça c'est du concert et de la générosité !

  • balci

    C'était génial comme concert. Quelle voix! Très belle soirée. J adore les artistes qui communique avec leur public.

Videos about Benjamin Clementine

Soul-revelation, passionate minimalist

'At least for now' that's the excellent debut by this 'French Brit'. Despite the CD title, it would seem that the enduring Benjamin Clementine is a stayer (who already sold out his visit to Les Nuits, for example).

A few quotes from Humo:

'Benjamin Clementine is a man to be very envious of. Overflowing with charisma, rock solid voice, virtuoso pianist. Grew up in France and now lives in London. The bard performs in bare feet, seated behind his keyboard in a designer suit, with a bare torso under the thick woolen fabric – for all the world to see. He can have it. That too.'

Clementine's music lies somewhere in the suburbs of both jazz and modern pop. Sometimes he is compared with Antony Hegarty or Nina Simone, but don't let yourself be confused by that.

Richly exaggerated... even if, just like that of those two, his music is draped around his impressive discourse. Not that you can complain about diversity: aside vocals & piano there are strings, electronica, percussion and some other stuff ready to provide the whole sparsely but effectively with colour.'
