Here are the best pop and rock concerts in Vienna in November.
Indie rock dancer? will be delivered. Pop music? Of course there is too. And a touch of chaos and unpredictability? It shouldn’t be missing anyway. Pop and rock concerts in November know how to use classic instruments of the genre in question well, whether it’s German Kraftklub, OneRepublic’s Poppers or ex-British troublemakers Libertines. Of course, the lineup for the coming weeks in Vienna includes much more.
Placebo and up against the Wiener Stadthalle
At Wiener Stadthalle, guitar-heavy sounds often dominate: on November 2, Placebo opened the dance in a very substantive way, with the band around Brian Molko and Stefan Olsdal introducing this year’s excellent new album “Never Let Me Go”. Visitors to Nova Rock Festival were already able to enjoy it live in the summer, which also applies to visitors to Stadthalle Rise Against (9.11.) and Kraftklub (19.11). So it’s a little rock reunion that’s going to happen there, where all the heroes can draw on their new stuff.
Volbeat and Alter Bridge at Wiener Stadthalle
Without a new album, but also with plenty of Nova history, fans of Danish Elvis Volbeat come to Austria: the metal band pays tribute to singer and guitarist Michael Poulsen, Innsbruck Olympiahalle (November 21) as well as Wiener Stadthalle (November 22 and 23). Alter Bridge around the iconic Miles Kennedy also devoted themselves to somewhat more difficult voices. The quartet recently introduced “Pawns & Kings,” their seventh studio album changing slightly in the tried-and-tested formula of catchy hooks and sharp levers. On November 28, the vocal cords may be abused and the fist stretched at the Wiener Stadthalle.
OneRepublic at Wiener Stadthalle and Sam Ryder at Wiener Flex
With so much rock power concentrated, you might need a few quiet sounds in between. Ryan Tedder and his group OneRepublic, who will be giving a concert at the Wiener Stadthalle on November 4, will make sure of that. Anyone who does not want to miss this opportunity and is also a fan of the song contest has a tough choice ahead. After all, Sam Ryder, who finished second in this year’s competition, will be a guest at Flex in Vienna that same evening. But back to Tedder: as a producer, he also had a hand on Bastille’s latest album, Give Me the Future. Brits celebrate pop dance music on November 24 – guess what – at Wiener Stadthalle.
Jacob Collier at Wiener Konzerthaus and Gregory Porter at Wiener Stadthalle
Jacob Collier can’t sit still: the British musician, best known as a teenager with elaborately designed cover versions that impressively emphasize his prowess, plays pretty much every instrument he can get his hands on. Recently, he threw himself into the four-album project “Djessy”, which also includes a number of guest musicians. On November 4, the multiple Grammy Award winner, who easily switches between jazz, funk and pop, will play at the Vienna Konzerthaus. Instead of world stages, Gregory Porter would almost make sports stadiums in the United States unsafe if his football career had been successful. But the injury ruined that dream, which is why the charismatic musician simply devoted himself to someone else and is now celebrated as a jazz singer with a powerful voice. On November 9 it can be tried at Wiener Stadthalle.
Rakes at the Viennese Gasometer and Bonobo at Grelle Forelle
In the past, the collaboration between Carl Barât and Pete Doherty could not always be described as frictionless. The two creative leaders of the Libertines were good for so many headlines, and Doherty in particular was considered the horrible brat in the rock circus, where you never knew if you were getting genius or mayhem. Meanwhile, things look a little different and the gentlemen themselves have visibly straightened out, as it is likely that the joint concert on November 7 at the Vienna Gasometer will also be punctuated by a crazy note. There, at the end of the month, British producer Bonobo grabs his instruments when he delivers a healthy blend of trip-hop, jazz and world music. Meanwhile, Dienerve from Germany are on the road with their usual social critique, presenting their current self-titled album on November 23 at Grelle Forelle.
Durian concept at Porgy & Bess in Vienna
Dorian Concept also has a new audio journey for its followers: Through “What We Do For Others,” the Viennese producer and musician presented an adventure book in which sounds sometimes roll, but then are carefully and cautiously stacked. on top of each other. On November 17, he will explain how this can work firsthand at Porgy & Bess in Vienna. The next day, the local duo Elis Noa was again present at the Konzerthaus, where Elisa Godino and Aaron Roar performed the album I Was About to Leave, which was dedicated to laying off.
