Comments : After last year's disappointing show, I was slightly less excited about tonight. Looking at the rather "low" attendance (about 900 tickets sold in a venue that holds up to 2300 people), it seemed I was not the only one. Gladly, the band proved they can still give really good performances, and tonight was probably the best one I have seen since ATP. The band seemed much more into it than last time. It was also very nice to get a pretty good light show instead of the useless video projections of the last tour. A much more dynamic set-list (despite the obvious faux-pas of playing Mexican Grand Prix) with many more old tracks and a great version of Mogwai Fear Satan to finish the concert.
