At the beginning of the afternoon this Thursday, a poster announces in front of the Cave aux Poètes that the concert is already sold out, while cars and latecomers are still flocking. Problem: no concert was originally planned. It is in fact the rapper Lomepal who will be present at 7 p.m. Mélodie, Sarah and Pauline* arrived a little too late: “ We heard about it this morning at the university library. We had a course in pharmacology this afternoon, we don’t know how we’ll make up for the four hours. »


They will wait, just in case, in front of the gate, unlike some fans who made the trip from Brussels. Or to Lucas, who already has a ticket for a concert by the artist in April: ” It’s quite an original concept, these ghost concerts. But what do we mean by ghost concert? The artistwho has just made a comeback with his new album Wrong Orderannounced a few days ago the dates of a particularly popular tour, since it was necessary to add a second date at the Zénith de Lille.

A concert in Roubaix… but where?

But he has also just started a series of surprise concerts announced… by notices on the Google search engine. For his premiere in Paris, at La Boule Noire, the rapper published this notice: “ Hyper desire to play in this room suddenly without warning. For his third stop, at the Orangery of the Botanical Garden in Brussels, he then asked if ” was it closed here? “.

Each time, fans have interpreted these messages as potential surprise concert dates, enough to cause long queues for shows… which, moreover, have no ticket office: first come, first served. So when on Wednesday evening, at the end of his Brussels show, Lomepal announced that he would be in Roubaix this Thursday… social networks were on fire.

Attendance limited to 170 people

A fake review, still written on Google, drove dozens of fans to the Colosseum. This Thursday, the phone did not stop ringing at the Roubais concert hall. Isabelle, who manages the ticket office, can attest to this: “ My colleague Doriane no longer has a voice she jokes. ” We had people who came in the morning to find out if the Lomepal ghost concert was organized at our place. The advantage is that it also gives us publicity! People know our name and were able to find out about our programming when they came. Other curious people also knocked on the side of the Public Condition.

On the side of the Cave aux Poètes, security had been aware since Monday that an important artist was planned, without knowing his identity. The 170 seats reserved for the public in a room with a maximum capacity of 200 people sold out quickly, with people showing up from 8:30 a.m. Fortunately, the mercury does not reach 1,000ºC for those who are now waiting for the fateful hour. .
