-M- - enigmatic French singer-songwriter
The son of French pop legend Louis Chedid, masked singer-songwriter -M- became a musical icon in his own right with an eclectic blend of funk, rock, pop, and nouvelle chansons. Take a look at the various -M- tickets currently on offer at StubHub.
From Oscar nominations to chart-topping albums
Born Matthieu Chedid in the Hauts-de-Seine region of Boulogne-Billancourt in 1971, -M- grew up in a talented family, with his father Louis a popular singer, his grandmother Andrée a gifted poet, and his sister émilie a future music video director. After performing in various short-lived groups during his teens, he launched his solo career in 1997 with debut album, 'Le Baptême' and supported Louise Attaque on their national tour. His 1999 sophomore 'Je dis aime' went on to sell half a million copies in his homeland and pick up the first of -M-'s many Victoire de la Musique awards. The star attracted worldwide attention in 2003 thanks to his Oscar-nominated contribution to 'The Triplets of Belleville' soundtrack, and later that same year released his third LP, 'Qui de nous deux'. Following the release of 2009's 'Mister Mystère', -M- recorded a family affair with his sister Anna, brother Joseph, and father Louis, teamed up with Vanessa Paradis to record the soundtrack for 'Un monstre à Paris', and collaborated with Sidiki and Toumani Diabaté on 'Lanomali.' He then reached number one for the third time with 2019's 'Lettre infinie'. You can both buy and sell -M- tickets on StubHub.
An idiosyncratic, unpredictable, and theatrical live performer
Matthieu Chedid has achieved huge success in the charts and at countless awards ceremonies for his studio efforts but it's undoubtedly on the stage where he truly comes alive. Adopting his -M- superhero alias, the musical maverick typically performs his melting pot of sounds in a range of sparkly flamboyant outfits while sporting an 'M'-shaped haircut and visor. He's also not averse to using every bit of the venue, whether it's leaping dramatically from a drum kit or strutting his stuff through the audience while showcasing his skills on his brightly-coloured guitar. -M- is also the perfect showman when it comes to between-song banter, engaging the crowd with both anecdotes and off-the-cuff jokes, while a talented backing band capable of keeping up with his loose improvisation, array of dancers, and occasional guest stars all help to provide a truly unique musical experience. Don't miss out on the chance to see one of France's most idiosyncratic, unpredictable and theatrical live performers and purchase your -M- tickets on StubHub.
