Details of Emperor and the Ticket Luck value
Canadian post-rock band Godspeed You! Black Emperor, commonly called GYBE, first came to prominence after releasing their debut album upon which they began touring frequently between 1998 and 2000. By 2003, the band members wanted to take on their individual musical interests and pursue careers in that due to which the group announced an undefined period of hiatus. In the following years, the band was reported to have broken off but finally came together by the end of 2010 for a tour that would continue to the next year. It then made an appearance in the well-known Coachella Valley Arts and Music Festival in 2012.
A distinguishing feature of the group’s live performances is that they consider film projections to be an essential part of putting the show in context. The band’s current lineup comprises of David Bryant on guitar and tapes; Efrim Menuck on keyboard, tape loops and guitar; Mike Moya on guitar; Sophihe Trudeau on violin; Thierry Amar on bass and contrebasse; Mauro Pezzente on bass; Bruce Cawdron and Aidan Girt on percussion and drums; and Karl Lemieux on film projections. Godspeed You! Black Emperor tickets have gained significant popularity among rock fans. If you are keen to experience a musical performance that completes itself through visuals then Emperor tickets are a good deal for you.
The name of Godspeed You! Black Emperor is taken from a Japanese documentary of 1976, which focuses on the exploits of an infamous Japanese biker gang known as the Black Emperors. The group was founded in Montreal in 1994 by guitarists Efrim Muneckand Mike Moya alongside bassist Mauro Pezzente. They got together after receiving an offer to be the supporting act to another local music group Steak 72. The three instrumentalists played lived on some occasions till they decided to finally make an album, which turned out to be a cassette that was self-released with a restricted number of copies in 1994. Following the cassette’s limited release, the Godspeed You! Black Emperor made efforts to expand quickly while it also continued to play live.
At this point in the group’s history they were eager on having anyone who could play an instrument, join them. Due to this reason, the band grew and many local musicians joined the group for several performances and then left. The group’s constantly changing lineup led to tension before the release of their second album F#A#, after which they became stable with being a nine member band consisting of Menuck, David Bryant, Moya, Pezzente, Thierry Aidan Girt, Bruce Cawdron, Norsola Johnson and Sophie Trudeau. Previous members of the group include James Chau, Thea Pratt, John Little Fair, Grayson Walker, Norsola Johnson and Roger Tellier-Craig.
Members of Godspeed You! Black Emperor are known to have worked on several side projects such as Set Fire to Flames, Esmerine, HRSTA, Fly Pan Am, Memorial Orchestra and Tra-La-La Band among others. In 2010 the group was reported to reunite to perform at the famous music event All Tomorrow’s Parties in the United Kingdom and in the United States. Mike Moya, who had left the group earlier, joined them again while on the other hand Norsola Johnson refused to participate. However, the band did take on a complete tour of Europe as well as North America in 2011, alongside which they announced more dates for shows in the UK including a performance at ATP music festival called I’ll Be Your Mirror which took place in London. The same year, while interviews with Voir magazine, Bruce Cawdon made reported that the group was already on its way to creating new material.
In February 2012, Emperor reported that they would be playing at the prestigious PitchforkMusic Festival held in Chicago in 2012. They also promised to play live at All Tomorrow’sParties music festival of I’ll Be Your Mirror which was planned to be held in New Jersey’s Asbury Park.
