    Désobéissance. As she's tasked the clip to Bruno Aveillan (Dégénération, Si j'avais..., Stolen Car) I assume it will look amazing and cost a mint.

    It's not the first time. The "Avant Que L'Ombre" shows were 13 in the same venue as well. Last time she said it was because of the construction of the stage (in fairness, she did descend from the ceiling in a coffin in the middle of the crowd and had a curtain of rain, so you see the point...

    In fairness, I played the album again in the car today and I see your point. It's beginning to reveal its CHARMS...

    It's a fabulous car album, I've been playing it on my journeys into & out of work pretty much everyday for the past two weeks... especially now with the traffic the way it is round MY neck of the woods :zombie:

    This is being re-released (already!) at the end of Nov with 2 bonus tracks including an extended version of Histoires de Fesses, and a DVD

    Yes, I'm fucking FURIOUS about that. I have invested in the (PROBABLY NOT THAT LIMITED) hardback cover, so I'm banking on that being worth something so I can flog and get the better version.

    Absolute piss take, though.

    So saw the gig tonight.

    Phenomenal as per. And then the encore. Which was the biggest WTF moment perhaps EVER. I don’t know how to spoiler on the phone but it left the entire crowd bemused, no one clapped and we all just left looking at each other. Visually astonishing but a rousing, crowd pleasing hit it was not.

    The visuals for it are incredible but it just died a complete death. No one was expecting it to be the end, then the lights came up. Everyone just stood still looking at each other and then eventually started shuffling out.

    Weird.

    I caved in and had a look at the setlist which is rather MOISTENING

    However that encore needs to get sorted. Hopefully the crowd response will result in a slight reshuffle by my gig next week ...

    It was pretty good- very “hit” heavy, albeit that I could have done with a couple of lesser known bits and bobs, but I guess she has to do CERTAIN songs. Massive :( at the set list someone swiped which showed “Les Mots” was a last minute removal too. And seemingly part of the main stage bit and not her usual “ballad in the centre with just a piano” section. What could have been...

    I can’t think it will. I imagine the “head scratching” angle was intentional. The visuals are a real peak, too, so the show builds to the moment, in fairness.

    I also wonder, once the fans know the set list more, if they’ll all give it a big send off as they know it’s the last song.

    Forgot to ask, what time does she come on please? And is it quite a calm crowd or rabid gays who'll tear the shirt off your back to catch Mylene's single tear during Rever?

    She came on about 9 for us, but a) it was a Saturday, b) she was late (it was listed as being 8) and c) everyone complained about it in the press.

    We were golden circle, but not bothered about getting up the front, so it was nice and easy around us. At the front they are VILE. People were leaving the front and coming to the back after the start...

    Thankyou! I'm going alone so a safe distance will suit me.

    I was! She was sensational.

    One of the best arena concerts I’ve ever been to. A lot of her contemporaries should TAKE NOTE.

    What did you a) think of the ending and b) how did the crowd react?

    A) it was bizarre! But it kinda worked... then again I had read your spoiler so I don’t know how I would have reacted if I hadn’t known.
    B) crowd reaction where we were on the floor was “wtf” but in a good way, I think!

    I was quite impressed by her live vocals. Obviously there were some mimed bits but most of it seemed live to me.

    “Innamoramento” piano ballad version was my “OMG I HAVE CRY” moment..

    I thought there was some obvious headset miming but generally good live vocals- and she has always been able to sing live, in fairness.

    Yes, that whole ballad section was lovely- Innamoramento was gorgeous.

    Did you get the same set list as opening night? Have they reinstated “Les Mots” yet?

    I have little to add other than: I WISH I HAD BOOKED TICKETS TO SEE THIS.
    I would have had to have gone alone, but to be honest I'm more than ok with that :disco:

    Same setlist

    I loved the ending - assumed it was some sort of full circle message going on, since it was the first song of 'en concert', and with similar imagery at points. Does this mean it's her last tour?

    That is interesting, yes.

    But nah, she’ll be back when she needs money for a new kitchen...

    Have we all ordered the EN CONCERT Blu-ray? That show also has an amazing ending.

    I have now snagged a cheap “pit” ticket (v much hoping this means STANDING) to this off Ticketswap and am now GOING :D

    I didn’t realise the shows are still going until Saturday, and the sheer GAY PANIC of it possibly being her last ever tour + setlist + rave reviews were enough to convince me to flash the cash for a quick trip to Paris :disco:

    Where has this rumour of this being her last live engagement come from?
