19 June 2013 – RTL2 : Very Very Private Concert (Dido, Texas, Skip The Use, Lou Doillon, Foals) – Olympia, Paris
This time, I publish directly the evening's summary without going through the stage pictures / videos usual ! It must be said that the frame is a little different. I'm warning you : when I write in the heat of the moment : everyone takes for his rank ! Lol ! It will be short, but it will allow me still to make a point about each artist ... Except a. We actually left just before Skip The Use, I will therefore not speak in this article. Fatigue ... ... coughed coughed ... it makes 10 days that I can link : I'm exhausted ! Lol !
The evening begins around 20 h, there are not a lot of people, but continued room to fill in As. It is Lou Doillon makes its debut. Honestly it's not my cam. As much as she seems super nice, as his music gives me nothing… I do not even know what to say so I am indifferent. For me Lou Doillon, this is forever the
hub film « Blanche » and his famous quotes : « Mazarin, I would take you to a trumpet ? ». Pity.
For the following group, Foals, it's a bit the same. There is a little more energy than side Lou Doillon obviously, but I seem to have heard these songs a thousand times before ... The leader clearly lacks charisma. I have not been shipped.
We get down to business : Texas. A group that I have not heard in years personally. Texas for me, it's « Summer Son » what. I enjoyed their set. They made their latest single « The Conversation » is really super friendly and made me want to discover the album. On the other hand, I was rather disappointed by Sharleen Spiteri ("Charlie Sheen" for short) : I expected to see a little sexy brunette and I found myself facing a granny to look straight out of the American West.
Dido. As well tell you right away : nothing to do with the rest. I specify, I'm not a fan of the girl ... I listened as you singles (« Thank You », « White Flag », « Here With Me », etc.), but I never pushed further curiosity. well, it set me impress and ears. She is beautiful, class, she sings well. She has a powerful voice and great especially, unlike other evening's artists : she can capture the attention ! It really is THE thing more.
Finally, I'm glad I attended this return of private concerts RTL2, especially at the Olympia. It allowed me to see people for whom I would never have paid up. So yeah ... I have not had a real good slap, but as I'm not too pop-rock, it does not surprise me. The atmosphere was pretty quiet overall : the choice of artists is very much there, j’imagine. I recall that I have not seen the set Skip The Use so I do not know how it was after ! Short, if you want to see more, please go to the RTL2 radio site for live or relive it "Very Very Private Concert". There is everything !
