Making its home since 1887 in Paris' 18th arrondissement – the same district as the infamous Moulin Rouge – La Cigale was once home to vaudeville stars Mistinguett and Maurice Chevalier (and more recently everyone from Radiohead to the Red Hot Chili Peppers). Costner and Modern West debuted here on their first European tour in 2007, and to date it remains his favorite. "I saw people jumping on the floor," says Costner, "and I thought, God, these French people are really in sync, man! They're really in sync!" Experience the Philippe Starck-renovated hall yourself to catch the best in modern French music, or current international acts playing this summer like Esperanza Spalding, Stephen Marley, and Dr. John.
