After Sheryl Crow's performance in Bercy yesterday , i though about going back to see her at La Cigale.
A friend reminded me of Bjork playing the Olympia theatre. Even if I've never been a fan of her music that's worth going to .
I just hate all this electronic crap but i saw her a few times and each time i enjoyed the concert. She's allways dressing up on stage and she knows how to put on a Show.

Tickets for this gig were sold in less than 5 min ( at silly prices between 70 and 110 euros ).
This concert is a event as it's her only gig in Paris for this tour and everything is recorded on tape ( TV show or DVD ? ).
Musicians here are not conventionnal nor drummer or bass player : a percussionnist , a keyboard player , 2 guys behind computers and a dozen girls dressed up singing backing vocals and playing brass .
I can't tell you what she played as i don't know that much about her music , but i enjoyed every minute.
The stage was beautifully decorated and her voice is pretty amazing .


Very good night indeed .
