Last time we saw Loud in Montreal, he was the headliner of M for Montreal, playing a sold out show and fresh off the announcement of two highly-anticipated shows at the Bell Centre.
Last night, Montrealers gathered in numbers to witness a milestone: Loud is the first Quebec rapper to headline a show at the Bell Center, an achievement in line with the skyrocketing progression of his career which over the past two years.
Local electro pop band Milk & Bone opened the show, getting the crowd hyped up to their dreamy lyrics and upbeat sounds.
Given that Loud was only playing this two-night residency at the Bell Centre and not a full tour, the crowd might not have expected a big production-level stage setup. But the rapper busted those expectations, bringing at the back of the stage a prop from his 56K (the song that started it all) music video: the front of an airplane.
Over the course of the night, Loud went through hits from Une année record, the album that started it all, as well as tracks from his new record Tout ça pour ça, which dropped earlier this month. He also had special guests in store, with performances from Coeur de Pirate, Charlotte Cardin, Lary Kidd and many more! Walking out of last night’s show, one thing was clear: Loud is here to stay, and the Montreal crowd will be here to cheer him on as he breaks many more records.
