Jeu 20 jan. – Patti Smith acoustic trio
It was my 3rd Patti Smith experience since 1996. The first time was with my father in Concarneau (south Brittany - France), I was 16 and I consider it as my first gig ever.
All 3 gigs were very unique to my own appreciation...
The first one back in July 1996 took place in an old town under the moonlight, by the sea...Simply beautiful ! Patti sang and said poems...
I will never forget this evening...

My second Patti Smith concert took place in my favourite parisian venue. The Bataclan, in July 2004. It was a more classical gig compared to the first one but the atmosphere in the audience was crazy ! A lot more than my first one when I was 16 ! I felt this way maybe because I was older this time and knew a bit more about the woman...I've appreciated that gig in a different kind of way ;)

And the last one...but not the least ! She introduced the gig as being the second unplugged one she was giving in her whole career ! The first one was (from what she told us) played in the 1970's with Bob Dylan !
And what I can say is that this evening Patti spoke to my soul...I cried and felt undeniably good ! Unplugged dreams...The feeling of attending a one in a life time live experience ! My legs are still shaking...Thank you Mrs Smith ;) You're simply amazing !!!
