Legendary stars of the 80’s New York club scene and global pop icons, Kid Creole and the Coconuts play the B-Spot in Nice this April.
Formed in 1980 by August Darnell in New York, Kid Creole and the Coconuts are still strutting their stuff, albeit with a somewhat different lineup than that in their heyday. They will be gracing the stage of the B-Spot in Nice this month, with two concerts on Tuesday 15th and Wednesday, 16th April.
Darnell took the stage name Kid Creole from the Elvis Presley movie ‘King Creole‘, and was heavily influenced by the late, great Cab Calloway, as witnessed to this day by his trademark zoot suits and broad-brimmed hats.
With a mix of funk, latin and rock sounds, the group is unmatched in its energy and the unique originality of its music. Defying description and transcending trends, Kid Creole and the Coconuts continue to wow crowds to this day with their repertoire of hits.
Tickets cost €50 (presale) or €250 for the VIP pack and may be reserved online. Tickets will also be available at the venue on each of the nights, costing €70.
Brace yourself, Nice, for the explosive cocktail that is Kid Creole and the Coconuts!
