Psychedelic Furs @ Élysée-Montmartre, Paris - August 29th, 2017

These guys were never huge in France so it was probably to be expected but I'd never seen the Elysée-Montmartre look so empty. It must've been pretty demoralising for this veteran band to see such a poor turn-out, and it's very unfair in regards to their long catalogue of great songs. To their credit, they played great and always seemed to be enjoying themselves, when other bands in the same situation would just grow a chip on their shoulder and half-ass their performance. They were very good.
