Tété 2011

Last night Mystery Guest and I went to Caen to see Tété in concert. The original date was back in February but it was postponed (we think he had broken his arm) until May. This is the third time we've seen him in concert - the first was back in 2006 and the second a year later.

The only downside to the concert was the opening act, some guy who opened for him... He got up on stage, said nothing (no introduction, his name or anything) and proceeded to play a few songs. The thing that kills me (besides his incomprehensible English) is that he was so full of himself and not that great. I know a few friends who have been working so hard these last few years trying to get into the music scene and who have a million times more talent than he does and it's this guy who gets a break...

Anyway back to Tété who gave a fantastic performance, as always, once he came on stage. He played for a good hour and a half and had a good set list of older and newer songs.

Sorry for the poor quality but they were taken with my iPhone. The videos aren't too bad though!

For a final encore he gave us a preview of a new song! Love it when they do that!

All in all it was a great concert, he is so animated on stage and it makes for a fantastic evening :)

I adore his music! the lyrics are SO well thought out, lots of plays on words and old french. Good work out for your brain. Check out "Madelaine" for a start :) Catchy too!
