8 November 2018 – Yelle : Club Party Tour – Elsewhere, Brooklyn (2018)
Yelle finishes his great American tour with 3 sold-out nights in New York. I had missed his visit to Paris earlier this year, it was an opportunity to catch up 👍.
It is 21 h when arriving on site. The place is tiny, it is also more of a bar than a concert hall : by rule of thumb, the scene must be even smaller than my old Parisian apartment 😂. All the better for us! The show is scheduled for 22 h, So we wait patiently for the arrival of Yelle listening to the songs of the first part : Barrie.
Yelle on the scene with her two sidekicks : GrandMarnier and F.K.R.D. She is wearing a silver suit and seems to have let the hair grow since the last time she was seen. It suits him rather well ❤. The show starts with smooth " Right here & Now (Here & Now) » and after a few words of welcome in English, the group connects on "Coca Without Bubbles" and " What do you want (Logo Remix) » which earned us some pelvic movements GrandMarnier.
Talking about that, if there is a piece that always makes its effect no matter the country, it's good «$$». In English, Julie asks us to show him how roll our hips. Some seem to be reluctant to try, She therefore proposes that practice all together 😛. I regret that his voice is so drowned in playback. On previous dates I attended, the effect did not seem as pronounced.
GrandMarnier then offers us clapper hands to the rhythm of drums. It's the perfect transition for " I want to see you " you can find the video at the end of the article. The concert continues with "Safari Disco Club" and " Because of the boys " I loved the arrangements.
They linked on one of my favorite songs : " What do you want ". If the song starts in original version, is to move gradually towards Madeon Remix putting an atmosphere of hell in the room. This really is one of their best songs ❤. Cool down with « Bouquet Final » and « Roméo ».
Yelle then resumes " Like a child (Second Date Remix) » that leaves me a bit perplexed; as I love the album version, as remixes of the title didn & rsquo; have never interested. Fortunately, the group quickly switche " Completely crazy " who set fire to the room. The main set ends on "Action Engine (SOPHIE & A. G. Cook Remix) » with the famous chorea blocked complement the group sketch in the clip. I have re-do ❤. It is the recall and the audience shouts « One more song! One more song! One more song! ».
This is GrandMarnier who speaks to warm us before the return of Julie. It makes us stand - with difficulty 😂 - a note and filmed us for social networking. You can feel it loose and it gets a bit laborious for him. Fortunately, Julie and Frank reappear and the group launched « Interpassion » that I love. They finish the last single dated : « OMG !!! ». They tell us they hope to return soon with new songs, which leads us to believe in an album soon ...?
It was really nice to find Yelle thousands of kilometers from home. We had a great night singing and dancing on titles that we love in the midst of some new as : « OMG !!! », "Interpassion" or "Romeo". Now, he'll have to consider laying a new disk huh 😛. I rediscovered some tracks through the arrangements that have evolved since the previous tour, but I regret still being too many support bands. Because of playback, we sometimes hear any more Julie sing.
The staging was kept to a minimum so I have not much to comment. I liked the atmosphere, relaxed and cool enough. It's always nice to see artists in an intimate setting like this, what we were? 200 breaking everything. Short, given their popularity here, I think we can expect a quick return on US territory : I am obviously the RDV!
I expect now in the comments, and especially, feel free to join me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and take a look at previous articles I have spent Yelle : The Gaite Lyrique, Paris (2014) and Paris Casino, Paris (2015).
