12 May 2009 – Mylène Farmer : Tour 2009 – Dome, Marseille
Before beginning this review, I must choose to adopt the posture of objectivity ... or "absolute fan" mode ... uh, well to use the text of Mylène Farmer ; since we must choose, with sweet words I can say, without infringing ... I am totally conquered ! I laid the foundations, So then we can begin ! Lol !
Arrive at 10am in front of the Dome in Marseille, the long wait begins for the first time, I'll wait alone for the pit ^^ No one could (or wanted) accompany me, So sometimes you have to make choices ; and nothing in the world I would not have missed the concert mostly on the pretext of being all alone, and to be honest, I do not regret a single second ! I spare you the details as usual ... 11 hour wait, it's long, but it is quickly forgotten ! Especially with Mylène 2m for self 2 hours !
19h ... Dome doors open, rat race to the entrance and then to the stage where I join Claire and Boots (I greet in passing if one day they fall on this blog) I met a few minutes before the flood. It is close to the stage, it looks just great ... ! A disproportionate screen hides the scene, much smoke, and a little more 2 hours waiting in the room before seeing the eye ... the eye of Mylène who blinks and makes off the room under a thunderous applause and screams ! A dizzying introduction on the screen that reveals transparency Mylène in a kind of chest on a platform above the ground and above, the décor ... two huge flayed 7 meters high, a central staircase and a huge library filled with mannequins : it is quite surprising to see !
The screen separates, and it's "Paradise Inanimate" which opens one of the most important concert of my life ! I love this song and I was convinced she would be opening ! It's something to see Mylène ! The cage opens to release a holding flayed ... The costumes are by Jean-Paul Gaultier, he did a great job for this tour. Musicians and singers are, as far as they are concerned, dressed in ready and nuns : this is the most beautiful effect ! Things are getting serious with a new introduction techno ... it's "Soul-Stram-Gram" ! Few steps outlined dancing under a halo, it resumes the original choreography with all the "skinned" (dancers and recess dancers) and we will resume the chorus at the end of the title in exactly the same way as the "Mylenium Tour" in 1999 ! It was quite disturbing to hear him say that we heard a hundred times on CD ^^ Lol ! new title, new chorea, " I am bored ", the screen returns to the stage, virtual skinned are choreography and dancers show ! I loved, it's really original ! This first part is really perfect, no complaints : the sequence of titles is punctuated, the atmosphere is, lighting effects are impressive !
first break, and therefore costume change ... Mylène returns "Red Riding Hood" on " Call my number " : good surprise, in the sense that I did not expect anything in particular from this passage ! It really grows live, and it's nice to hear, because I really thought it was going to be like "In the streets of London" in 2006 to be boring ... ! well no ! It's quite the opposite ! And it is bubbling pit, j'suis already hardened ! The following title, it is « XXL », the seen and reviewed, but ultimately going pretty well ; it's an easy song sing hurler ! During interpretation, Mylène the opportunity to mimic a "pipe" of a musician and the first pyrotechnics are running ! Hum, I liked the smell of burning ! quiet time first big surprise of the show : " What am I useful for ", a little-known song of the general public and has not sung since 1989, as you say that I expected ... Unfortunately the new orchestration does not convinced me ! The title is quite rhythmic originally, there ... it loses some of its charm due to release more "guitarisée" ! Fortunately, the "To-to-to-to" from " Provided they are soft " resound and there ^^ I fucking my race gets off ! Lol ! I love this song and re-orchestration is really phenomenal, they even added a little break at the end : One of my favorite moments, by then, well ... it shows his "panties" to everyone, and that, it transcends me ! Lol !
And then ... it was ... the emotional moment ! ^^ The screen shows an interlude with a couple of intertwined dancers and there, it appears in a beautiful blue dress, She's just gorgeous ! That this woman is beautiful ! It fascinated me for 2 hours, I only had eyes for her ... it's impossible to look away ! I am confident of being passed by the staging of the show because of it ^^ It's " Stitch " which opens the ball, the introduction of the title was beautiful. M. Cassar is the piano ... And the second big surprise "We will remember", only fans know the title ^^ Lol ! First grade and there, Mylène said "Oh my god" : is cracking ! The first tears of the evening ladies and gentlemen ! We can all blame him, but it is sincere ... To be standing ovation as she was, it must be something special. And, finally, this song, it is for us ! It was a touching moment.
Arf, is the chiantissime " Dream " which continues the saga tearful, at every concert since 96, it has become essential… Sadly ! But this year, She did not cry against ^^ By staging with amazing green vortex floating above the stage was very original ! Never 3 without 4 ... " And either I " Ends melancholy way ... as 2006, the voice does not pass : and as 2006, it irritates ... She clenched immediately and let us finish singing the song ... It was really moving ! The end of the title is particularly well staged, She climbs the stairs as for the final in 2006, the music " Before the shadow… " as 2006, the wink is rather interesting ! Tormented do him reverence, before getting up entirely for the enormous ... nay exceptional result !
New orchestration "Libertine" which launches the most invigorating part of the show ! The costume of the dancers is just beautiful ! Not to mention the holding of Mylène, a nice striped black and white asymmetrical dress ! It is full of facial expressions during the song, Is this woman crazy ! Lol ! The staging is bright ! One of my favorite moments ! But not as much as the following ... "Without Counterfeiting" : réorchestration plus rock, new choreography with "air guitar" : I loved ! If I had to relive a moment, this would be it ! At the end of the song, after an "A-ouuu" on Michael, it will make us take and there ... little problem mic, and say : "You take with me ? But first I have to adjust a microphone problem, I need somebody… (A technician arrives) sofabed, it bothers me ! » It's so good when she said bullshit ! It then continues with " I give you back your love ", good ... the song itself does not bother me, but it does not happen much ... except perhaps the screens and lights in the blood-red tones that would make good the stands ... I will tell you that in a month ^^ Note that if you remove "Dreaming" the setlist is really perfect !
Another pause ... green lasers are launched to a head over the public, so that you can touch with our hands ... The atmosphere is really special ; it seems to participate in the staging ! Everyone raises his hands and there ... it's "Degeneration" who starts ! Assisi on a huge chair beetle, this is one of the highlights of the concert ! One of the most beautiful pictures visually anyway ! I did not think that the title would both live ! Yvan gets excited about a funny wafer during the whole song (a-levels on a priori, This is a new instrument of digital music that makes crazy stuff) ; one of my favorite moments ; but this, they did not count on more ... timeless "Disenchanted", new intro (not long enough my son ^^), while the public is a trance ! as in 2006, standing room contains the song, we hear little Mylène ^^ I'm looking forward to it going to the Stade de France, it'll be great to hear 80 000 people sing that title ! Do not go to a concert Mylene without knowing the words of this song eh ! At the end, necessarily, it makes us resume with a sense of the very special deduction : "Are you as hot as us on stage ?! You are very tight !!! Good, you are also more !!! This is your song… some mine, as well ! ». What this comic Mylène ! Lol ! The public is unleashed, and " It's in the air " gears (title which is also No. 1 top this week hehe ^^), necessarily, the atmosphere does not fall, and everyone yells the " It's ugly ! » in heart ! The triad "Degeneration - Disenchanted – It's in the air " it really is a unique moment ! Dancers show choreography clip skeletons, the staging is really damn good ! At the back of the stage, all spark library ! Woooow ! Both say that after that, no need to diet !
I think the show would have ended there without worries ... it might have been better ; car, if I loved the intro, on the final "If I had the less ..." lacks a little originality ! Tormented make a final bow as the central staircase opens to allow Mylène enter and pick up a jar of mustard in the basement ... ^^ No, obviously ! It's the end of the concert ^^ Lol ! Let's say that after the end of "Before the shadow ... Bercy" which was amazing (still today, this is the most beautiful final concert I've ever been), it was hard to beat ; but here it was really "Before the shade… poor tour ". It was still very nice eh ... But there are better ! 18 securities, 2 hour show ... and it goes at breakneck speed !
I had not been in a trance like that since the "Confessions Tour" Madonna for which I was in a pit with Sandra. I remember I finished completely soaked and excited like crazy, well there, it was the same thing ^^ More voice yelled after "Mylèèène ! " do you want some, here's ! Wow ! Only one thing to say : I can not wait to return to ! Moreover, it will perhaps be necessary that I invest in a fourth day, to be back in pit ! Lol ! The idea will make its way ... A small Lyon tempt me well ! ^^
In any case, for me, this is the tour that I preferred : there is nothing to say, the titles are well chosen (even though she has sung any of my favorite songs the bitch ^^), the set and costumes are huge ! It moves, there is ambiance ! If you must go, you will not be disappointed ^^ I have still not heard a single negative review of the show in general (I'm not talking about the entrance and exit fees that make the comparison with 2006 ...). here. If they go through there, I am very happy to have also met with the forum members Mylène Farmer ^^
To finish, I want to thank the people that I had to "pinch" pictures to illustrate this article because of the lack of official photos, I hope they forgive me (to be contacted in case of trouble) ^^ And kudos to those who arrived at the end of the minutes !
