The concert was stunning. I was very close to the stage (2nd row). Everything was perfect.

The setlist was awesome, a perfect mix between songs from the new album and older songs (she sang all my favorite songs except one):

01. Brennið Þið Vitar
02. Innocence
03. Hunter
04. Unravel
05. Hope
06. Jóga
07. The Pleasure Is All Mine
08. Hidden Place
09. Pagan Poetry
10. Earth Intruders
11. Army Of Me
12. I Miss You
13. Vökuró
14. Wanderlust
15. Hyperballad
16. Pluto
17. Oceania
18. Declare Independence

The ambience was incredible. One minute she was singing “intimate” songs and everyone was listening religiously to her beautiful voice and the next it was a song with crazy beats and everyone was going mental dancing, jumping and screaming like mad.

I loved what she was wearing too. The lights were awesome. The location was perfect:

The icing on the cake (it came as a surprise for me) was how full of energy and receptive to the public she was. She was always smiling even asking the crowd to sing a couple of times. At one point someone threw a small hula-hoop on the stage and she picked it up and played with it. I’ve been to a few of her shows and I had never seen her like this. It was so obvious she was having an awesome time on stage.

Here’s a photo I took. It’s not really clear and nothing special but it is to me. I love it.

It tried to describe it as well as I could but it’s not really easy because it’s such an emotional experience. It would have been hard for me to do it even in French so it’s really hard in English.
Hope you understand what I meant to say and share.

^ I bought a ticket to visit the Arènes early in the afternoon so that I could see how it was and, you know, ask a few questions to crew members and security guards, it's always useful. That's when I took the pic.

I wish I had been a V.I.P.



C'est vrai que ça aurait été bien qu'on y aille à la même date, on aurait pu se rencontrer.
Je regrette de ne pas avoir été aux deux dates. On risque d'avoir à attendre longtemps avant qu'elle repasse en France.

Sorry for the French.

I recall reading her saying this is the most fun she's had on tour every...
b/c of the one month on/ one month off thing she says she is better rested and not fearing burn out.

Glad you had fun!!!! I am so damn jealous though!!!
