Stephan Eicher Tickets
The wonderfully diverse musical world of Stephan Eicher
Stephan Eicher has been a constant presence in the Swiss post-punk and pop rock scenes since the late 1970s. When it comes to his song writing, he's a polyglot, singing in a number of languages, often in the same song, including German and Swiss German, English, French, Italian and Swiss regional Romansch dialect. He's now more of an adult pop rock artist, but you can feel his alternative ethos still coming through in the nuances, inflections and references in his later music. Discover it all when you buy your own Stephan Eicher tickets or sell them on StubHub.
Serious European alternative pop-rock success in the 1980s
Stephan Eicher began his musical conquest of Europe with the German-speaking countries in the 1980s with the band he formed with his brother, Grauzone, who played alternative pop-rock, or what would come to be known as post-punk. They succeeded in their original mission of winning over German audiences, and their music also caught the spirit of the times well enough to enjoy chart success as far as France. Lengthy tours ensued, reaching as far afield as the African continent, and at the end of that era, Eicher had emerged as a well-respected songwriter, frontman and guitarist in the Swiss rock oeuvre. The band was pretty much a vehicle for his talents and in it, he composed music that managed to combine the emerging electronic sounds with traditional rock, influenced by the counter-culture heroes of his youth, including mainly Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan and Patti Smith. He still plays plenty of the music from this phase of his long career, and the old material has remained every bit as popular as his later releases. You can hear all of it when you get Stephan Eicher tickets.
Covering French crooners and being covered by metal bands
Stephan Eicher has also paid tribute on his albums to the traditional male popular singers of yesteryear, such as Serge Gainsbourg and Georges Brassens, and it's this anchoring in the romantic music of post-war Europe that has been his primary connection with his audiences, both old and young alike. In the 1990s he began collaborating with other renowned artists and musicians, like Welsh bass virtuoso Pino Palladino, who has played with The Who, and Manu Katche, the well-respected French drummer. He has also had an influence on a new generation of bands, and his songs have been covered by bands in a variety of genres, including seminal electronic outfit Cabaret Voltaire and Germany's industrial metal purveyors, Eisbrecher, with well-known producer Flood adding a remix of his album track "Combien de Temps" to the pile. Although his pace might be a bit more leisurely these days, Stephan Eicher tickets still promise a good night out with some quality live music on StubHub.
