SUGAR SAMMY « Le new king of comedy » (Quotidien) extends his takeover of France
2017-12-27

- Additional shows at l’Alhambra in Paris spring 2018

- Touring France, Belgium, Switzerland February & March 2018

***Plus secret shows in Montreal early next year

Montréal (Dec 27, 2017) – Before New Year’s Eve, we had to add a few more shows to kick off 2018. Because, as we say at Sugar Sammy HQ: On ne chôme pas! And France can’t get enough of this Québecois.

After selling over 25,000 tickets in France, at the Point-Virgule, Européen and Alhambra theatres in Paris and on tour around France, Sugar Sammy’s success with the French continues. He’s adding more shows at l’Alhambra in the new year, in May and June 2018. Tickets go on sale tomorrow (Dec 28) at 10 am Central European Time.

In February and March 2018 he hits the road on a tour that will take him to Nantes, Lille, Saint-Étienne, Nice, Rennes, Marseille, Bordeaux, Toulouse, Lyon, Brussels (Belgium and Geneva (Switzerland). Switzerland will be the 31st country in which he’s performed and we’ll see if they can remain neutral after his visit!

Montreal fans will have a chance to see what Sugar Sammy’s learned in France, with secret shows in February 2018. The shows are sold out but more shows may be added, you never know! Fans must sign up by sending an email to secretshow@sugarsammy.com to be informed if more shows go on sale. They’ll have to react quickly because the shows sold out within 90 minutes of being announced. But that’s all we can say – because they’re secret! He’ll also spend some time in Montreal doing private, corporate shows, which can still be booked.

Since adapting his show to Parisian audiences, Sugar Sammy has captured the attention of the French and created a whole new country of fans.
