Kasabian @ L'Album de la Semaine for Canal+, August 31 2011

Kasabian @ L'Album de la Semaine, Canal+, August 31st 2011
First time for the new season for us @ famous Canal+ tv show L'Album de la Semaine, we were still on the seaside when The Kills played here last week on August 24.
Tonight it's packed and as we get there a bit late we're seating on the side stalls so we're not directly in front of them with the 200 strong audience.

setlist "Re-Wired" was played somewhere in the middle (?)

The band is starting with a new song that's already been played @ Festivals ( "Velociraptor") strangely enough they only played 4 new songs tonight (" Days are forgotten", "switchblade Smiles" already heard at different gigs too & "Re-Wired" ) with 6 old ones.
Usually @ L'Album de la Semaine, bands are playing 5-7 new songs, one for each day of the week, plus a couple of old ones.

Can't really judge the new songs as it's the first time that we're hearing them but they do still sound like Kasabian's.
"Re-wired" that was played for the first time ever in front of an audience seems to have a good hook.
Needless to tell you that the old ones were great.
The short set ended with "Fire" with everyone singing.
GREAT gig

The band was nice to fans at the end of the show posing for pics and signing stuff.
Looking forward to see them tomorrow at the private show @ Sony HQ.
