Garbage @ Zénith, Paris Nov 22 2012

 Garbage @ Zénith, Paris Nov 22 2012
see ya there tonight

Gargabe is back in Paris just a few months after playing a sold-out show at the Olympia theatre (on May 16), tonight is a different story, it's a small zénith (3000 capacity) and it's far from being full.
We have two support bands: first is SUCCESS, we didn't see them as we were still outside, then Pony Hoax that was ok. After a long intermission GARBAGE is finally playing on the very simple stage, a huge backdrop , two keyboards on each side.
Last time we saw Garbage was @ L'Album de la semaine for Canal+ on May 15 promoting the latest album and the day after for a signing session @ Fnac store. Can't say that the new songs sound very good as there are too many electro-effects on them, it's ruining everything, the reviews have been very bad for the new album.
Of course the band is playing all the hits but there's something missing, I don't know maybe I'm not interested anymore in that kind of music. All my friends are telling me that they've done a great show but I'm not convinced at all.
The thing that I'm wondering: how do they get such a big sound with just two guitars ?
Good show just above average
