Paris concert at Villette Sonique, 2013 24th of may


Long time french fan of the band, I attended my first ever concert this friday in Paris.

Afraid to be disappointed after such long years of wait, my mind was totally blown away by the show. The Terror sounds perfect live.

I also should say I dropped some tears.

The french and german TV channel Arte broadcasted the whole show, which can be enjoyed at this adress

Thanks so much for this link! I was at the concert as well, and I must say (as someone who has seen then 4 times!) that while this show was, as you probably know, very DIFFERENT from the sorts of shows they are known for, I still think it was their best, most solid and focused set I've seen. The band is, in my opinion, doing the best shit they've ever done-- and the Terror songs sounded even more brutal live (in the video it didn't come out so abrasive, but it's still quite good.)

A cheesy, yet magnificent piece of information that you might appreciate: I also shed more than a few tears, and one of my tears caught a piece of black confetti on my cheek (which I kept, naturally.)
