Garbage, @ Elysee Montmartre, Paris,France. 8-11-01


The hostel we had was utter crap ! This was back when people would queue for hours before the doors open & it was this gig which has left me with a bitter taste as regards the audiences in France. The fact that people were pushing/jostling hours before the show was just ridiculous. Of course, since this gig i’ve seen a few other shows in France & they (audience) were a LOT better behaved & had manners towards their fellow music lovers. Yeah, they’re not all the same, but, you only get one chance to make a first impression 😉 The coolest thing about this show was that Shirley got someone up onstage to sing with her. Don’t think it’s been done since. What myself & Michel didn’t realise at the time was that it was Anne , who we’d see a lot more of over the years ! (Along with Marta who was also stood down the front) It’s a small world & funny how things can turn out.) Of course, they are also a couple of the nicest people i’ve ever met…so it proves not everyone in that crowd were dicks !
