ZZ TOP + Jesus Volt @ Zénith, Paris June 18 2013

ZZ TOP + Jesus Volt @ Zénith, Paris June 18 2013



ZZ TOP is back in Paris to promote new album "La Futura" after playing Bercy Arena  in 2010 and the Olympia theater in 2012, The Texans are now playing at the (medium size) Zénith (around 4000 capacity. Opening band French Blues rock band Jesus Volt did  decent set.
After a long intermission ZZ TOP is getting on stage @ 9:15, the stage is kept to a minimum, there is literally nothing apart from a screen in the back and two small ones on each side on the floor.
The light show is still as bright as ever which is perfect to take pictures.
Nice start (see setlist below for details )
The band is on auto-pilot, everything is perfect in fact this is the same show for the last two tours with a couple of new songs.
As usual they are playing a very short set: 80 min max including the Encore.
Good show but feels like seeing automatons with guitars.
