Sebastien Tellier: UK tour dates
With last night's Olympics closing ceremony in London, and its focus on British music, I was wondering how the event would have unfolded had France won the right to hold the Olympics.
Would Johnny Hallyday be headlining? Who else would be on the bill. M83? Justice? One likely candidate would be Sebastien Tellier.
For a resulutely French artists, he's getting a higher profile certainly in the UK, playing in London in July as part of the Traction festival following the release of My God is Blue in the UK the month before.
More significantly he's undertaking dates across the UK at the end of the year.
He's been playing dates around France and the rest of Europe already, with more to follow in October and November, including shows in France, Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands and Germany.
He plays the casino de Paris on december 3, before heading to the UK for shows in London, Broghton and Leeds.
The tour then concludes at the Arches in Glasgow on December 9.
