@ Bataclan, Paris March 17 2012

America is back in Paris less than a year after their two sold out shows @ Casino de Paris in April 2011, tonight it's not sold out but quite full in an all seated Bataclan.

Basically we have the same show as last year but shorter as they're not playing the first album in its entirety, still a huge screen in the back that is playing movies.
The band is neat (with a new bass player) , the vocal harmonies are great and no need to tell you that the songs are classics of the americana.
They have an album out of songs that they wish they would have written (see setlist for details) but they already played the same covers last year "california dreaming" "sister golden hair"...
They ended their set with their biggest hit "A Horse with no name" with a few guests including french singer Laurent Voulzy who we met at Olympia for Roger Daltrey
Another great show !

90 min set

"A horse with no Name" feat. French singer Laurent Voulzy among other guests
