LYS & STEVE HEWITT (PLACEBO)
European Tour | currently on tour
MUSIC TOUR | DAKOTA PRODUCTION
To celebrate the 10 anniversary of the band LYS, RODOLPH NASILLSKI worked closely with their founder and lead singer, NICOLAS VERON, to make that event a gift to the audience. The idea came up quickly: push further the act that RODOLPH NASILLSKI directed at Olympia Hall in Paris in 2012 and make it a tour through Europe. Launched in 2018, the story hasn't ended yet, dates are scheduled in 2020 and a third album is coming.
It's a long story between LYS, STEVE HEWITT (former Placebo drummer and songwriter) and RODOLPH NASILLSKI. If LYS and STEVE HEWITT had met a couple of years before working with RODOLPH NASILLSKI, he was the one who brought them on stage for the very first time at Olympia Hall in Paris for his show "DÉPART IMMÉDIAT !". Since then, he's kept in mind the project to put them on tour through Europe. The 10th anniversary of LYS was the perfect opportunity. Planned to make a few dates in 2018, that show toured in 2019 as well and more dates are to come in 2020 while a new album is in the pipe.The story isn't ready to end.
