The show must go on


This had to be quite a big surprise for Phoenix when the crowd invaded the stage during their gig in Vancouver on January the 22nd. But they never gave up, Thomas Mars kept on singing louder and louder, asking the crowd to put their hands in the air, turning an epic security fail into an amazing peripety these young dudes would never forget. Indeed, Thomas and his mates were very pleased by this emotional moment which is kind of a mega 'thank you' for everything this band has created all over their carreer, and a way to say 'you are the best, you sincerely deserve this Grammy Award you're going to win next week'. 9 minutes of Canadian joy.
Anyway, this may be named the Live 2.0 : when fans meet artists, le summum of interactions between kings and serfs, sky and ground, gods and believers. I think this concept actually needs to be developped, while now we are aware of the fact artists almost earn more money with tours than album sells.

Quelle surprise pour Phoenix quand la foule a subitement envahi la scène pendant leur concert à Vancouver le 22 janvier dernier. Mais contrairement à ce qu'on aurait pu penser, ils n'ont pas abandonné, Thomas Mars a continué de chanter de plus en plus fort, demandant à la foule de lever leurs mains en l'air, transformant une énorme faille de sécurité en une fabuleuse péripétie dont ces jeunes se souviendront longtemps. En effet, Thomas et ses collègues avaient l'air très contents et émus par ce moment de communion avec leurs fans qui peut être vu comme une sorte de "grand merci" pour ce qu'ils ont créés tout au long de leur carrière, et une façon aussi de dire "vous êtes les meilleurs, ce Grammy Award que vous allez gagner la semaine prochaine, vous le méritez vraiment". Bref, 9 minutes de joie et de folie canadienne.
Ce "Live 2.0" pourrait donner des idées aux tour managers : quand les fans rencontrent les artistes, c'est le summum de l'interaction entre rois et serfs, entre ciel et terre, entre dieux et croyants. Je pense que ce concept mérite vraiment un approfondissement alors qu'on sait maintenant que les artistes gagnent presque plus d'argent lors de leurs tournées qu'avec les ventes d'albums.
