So, have had a few days now thinking of the concert last Friday. And first was it better than the “Timeless” Tour? Actually yes I loved the the “Timeless” Tour concert but the one now in Paris, Defense Arena, is better. And you might still be able to get some tickets since they added new dates. If you have a shot at it, do it.
Myléne Farmer know how to take control of her public and make them jump when she say jump. She is the master of the game and the audience follows. A slightly older crowed than you might expect during a pop concert (rock is another thing), but these people have most likely followed her since the 80s and the rumor that this is the last time she will put on such a huge production made them buy the tickets.
And Myléne is not getting younger so the high notes, her characteristic way of singing is not as easy for her today as 10 years back and I am happy she realize this and use the technical ways she can to not make a “Madonna at Eurovision 2019” mistake. Its smart and do not shade the performance.
Another of her specifics is the synchronized dancing. More or less standing on the same spot and dance, this is all there still. Just like when I discovered her in the 80s and it looks SO GOOD and the dancers are 100% in sync.
If anything, which is more or less me looking for something to say “not so good” about is that I was a bit disappointed on the outfits this time. The where more toned down than usual, looked amazing but still nothing “over the top” strange as it can be with Gaultier making the dresses. But again, it looked amazing.
So, I won’t write so. much more now, get back to it when I have seen it again on the 14th together with Swedish friends who has no clue about Myléne Farmer more than I feed them with for years.
