After hours of rushing into the city centre of Paris from Amsterdam, we arrived just after the show began. Opening with ”Love Me”, electric vibes transmitted through L’Olympia Bruno Coquatrix and remained for the following two hours.
I have always thought huge arenas were the place to be when experiencing live music. It feels more majestic in some way. However at L’Olympia Bruno Coquatrix with room for 2000 people, I got a more personal and intimate concert experience. Since The 1975 are one of my favorite bands, I truly appreciated the feeling of being there alongside them and not simply being a spectator. An example of this is Matt Healy communicating with the crowd, along with sharing his opinions on life and politics.
Songs like ”Girls” and ”She’s American” kept the crowd on their feet. Even with a smaller venue, a sense of freedom was present. One might expect claustrophobic moments with a dancing crowd in a small area, but luckily this was not the case.
I would love to see the band once more, we’ll see when and where this would take place.
