Ahh Charlotte is amazing!
I was at her gig at Latitude Festival in England a few weeks back and I managed to get to the front row! It annoyed me though because so many people in the audience didn't know any of her songs and it was great because I was singing along and she kept smiling at me haha. Anyway, it was really sad because she said it was to be her last ever gig so I presume she's retiring from the singing It's a shame because I love her songs.
Anyway, I managed to take some pictures:

And here is a picture I found on flickr:

this shows the long list on her arm of people she had to thank because it was her last concert. She read out a list of names, it was really sweet!

God, I would love to see her live. The latest album is one of my most frequently played in recent months

Lucky you Loverunway. Sad to hear that she may give up singing as I too enjoy her songs and was hoping to see her live one day. Anyhow, thanks so much for sharing your photos!

It is a shame that she won't be doing more music at the moment but it was never meant to be a whole new career for her really. It (making an album) was more of something that she had wanted to do for a while and finally did. I was shocked that she did a second album I really thought 5:55 was going to be the only one for her

It's wonderful that you got those photos of her last gig, if that's what it turns out to be.

Those leather pants!

So sad to hear she's retiring. I guess it costs more than she's earning; the music industry is really struggling at the moment. She is exponentially more talented than Lady Gaga, Rhianna and whoever else is on the top 40.

I know, it's so sad! I don't think she was doing that well though, unfortunately... I don't know if she was popular in France but she wasn't that popular in the UK and her songs were mostly in English so the UK and US were her main target audiences I guess?
The best part of the concert though was when she sang as Serge Gainsbourg song and talked a little about him inspiring her. She sang L'Hotel Particulier.

Great photos loverunway.
I saw her show in Paris, it was great.

She may not be retiring from music. Maybe she just don't want to tour anymore but she'll continue to make albums.
I hope so...

Somehow I don't think she was trying to appeal to the masses. There was absolutely no promotion here in the UK (that I know of).

I don't think it was a money issue, I'm not sure what the deal was for the 2nd album but for 5:55 she only kept 10% of album profits, she wasn't in it for the money. I also don't think it's a promotional thing it was more of an artistic adventure she wanted to have and did and now it's done for the moment

can anyone ID those cowboy boots she wears all the time? They're so casual-cool! All the ones that are suede and that color and style aren't cut low like hers appear to be.
