Jacques Dutronc @ Zénith Paris jan 14th 2010

Jacques Dutronc @ Zénith Paris
Jan 14th 2009

French singer Jacques Dutronc is back on stage for the first time since 1992.
All the shows @ Zénith are sold-out , 5 in a rowbetween the 12th & 16th of jan.
He will be back in Paris for more gigs this summer.
It's the first that we're seeing him on stage.

With Vincent Lindon as a guest on vocals for a song
He's here to play all the hits, all dressed in black including his musicians , black & white stage & lightning.
As cool as ever , strangely enough he's drinking Perrier on stage and not whiskey and he's NOT smoking his trademark cigar.

Famous french session bass player & composer Jannick Top is on ... bass , Erdal Kizilcay (ex David Bowie ) is on guitar, a gorgeous blonde on backing Vocals & flute ( Sophie Braconnier ) & other musicians (couldn't get their name ).

Jacques Dutronc is relax for the whole 90 min gig maybe a bit too much. His speeches between songs are a bit lame anyway songs are speaking for themselves and we had them all:
« Et moi, et moi, et moi », « Qui se soucie de nous », « La fille du père Noël », « L’opportuniste », « J’aime les filles », « Les cactus », « Il est cinq heures, Paris s’éveille », « Les play-boys », «Gentleman cambrioleur » ,"L’hymne à l’amour (moi l’nœud)", « Fais pas ci fais pas ça », « Le plus difficile », « Le petit jardin»,«Merde in France (cacapoum) »
NOT in that order.
The band is rocking with some nice guitar soli, they even introduced one song with some Rolling stones riffs.
Jacques is not doing that much behind the mike leaving the spotlight to the musicians when he's not singing.
The encore consisted of 3 already played songs :« Et moi, et moi, et moi », « La fille du père Noël» & « Les cactus » ( ?!? )
Cool set but it could have been a bit better.

Crack Boum Huuuuu !!!

See Ya
