Phoenix – 1901 – A Take Away Show from La Blogotheque on Vimeo.

From Eminem to Phoenix without an awkward pause. This is a very special set of live performances by Phoenix in Paris.. Thanks to The Blogotheque for putting this together. The first part is above, and the second and third parts are below this little area that has been claimed by words. After getting accustomed to seeing Phoenix on the sterile sets of late night shows, these three videos are especially captivating.

They were said to be always scared, meticulous, and not really the perfect match for our little adventure in a very, very touristic area in Paris. Nonsense. Oh, yes, sure they didn’t go after people passing by, neither climbed on top of cars, but they played the game and seemed happy to do so. They improvised a show for a shy, almost unsure yet growing audience on the Trocadero square, hijacked a tourists bus replacing the audioguide by “Lisztomania”, and then, they played a last song under a bridge, at the foot of the Eiffel Tower.
