Daniel Lavoie

Théâtre Maisonneuve, PdA

In a career lasting over 40 years, singer-songwriter, actor and poet Daniel Lavoie has established himself as one of the major figures in francophone music, with 25 albums and an array of awards (Félix, ADISQ, Victoire, Midem) to his credit. Born in 1949 in Dunrea, Manitoba, Daniel Lavoie recorded his first album, À court terme, in 1975, but it was Nirvana bleu in 1979 that broke him through to the mass audience thanks to radio hit La danse du smatte. Six years later, the artist reached a new milestone with the album Tension Attention (1984), winner of three Félix awards, while the single Ils s'aiment sold 2 million copies and was translated into a number of languages worldwide. He has also made his mark in film and theatre: Lavoie played the role of Frollo in the opera Notre-Dame-de-Paris (1998), with the show running in Paris and London for two years. His discography also includes the hit albums Long courrier (1990), Docteur tendresse (2007) and J'écoute la radio (2011). He takes the stage in this 18th edition of MONTRÉAL EN LUMIÈRE to present songs from his latest album, Mes longs voyages.
