(2013)

From May 2, 2009, the French singer Mylène Farmer began a tour through France, Belgium, Switzerland and Russia. It was her fifth tour and supported her seventh studio album Point de suture. For the first time, this tour lead the singer through stadiums and, unlike her 2006 tour, featured a transportable stage.

Background[edit]

Since the announcement of Farmer's seventh studio album, the media said that a tour was scheduled for 2009 to support this album.[1]

About this new series of concerts, Farmer explained in an interview: "I am back on stage because I'm bored. I need to reinvent my life. (...) I want to feel dizzy again."[2][3] She announced that the tour will be carried out throughout France and that the show will be grandiose.[4]

A concert at the Stade de France, Saint-Denis, was first announced for September 12, 2009 (which is also the singer's date of birthday), then another concert on September 4 at the stadium of Geneva. Tickets for both concerts were put on sale from March 28, 2008.[5][6][7] A second concert at the Stade de France, for September 11 was later announced on March 29 and the tickets were put on sale from April 1, 2008.[8] In April, a concert was added in Brussels for September 19.[9][10] Other concerts are announced in the media at present, such as Bordeaux, but are not officially confirmed. In Paris Match, Farmer confirmed the tour would go to Russia in 2009, and additional dates in Ukraine and Latvia are rumoured.[11][12] A concert at the Bollaert stadium in Lens was announced as being official [13] then was denied in the media,[14][15] but the final decision, the cancellation, that should have been known on May 14,[16][17] was published on May 21, 2008. On May 15, four concerts were officially announced: two in Nantes and two in Rouen for May 2009. The following day, the record label Polydor confirmed them and added eleven dates scheduled in various cities (Nice, Clermont-Ferrand, Marseille, Toulouse, Nantes, Rouen, Strasbourg, Dijon, Lyon).[18] On May 23, three new dates were added : May 6 (Clermont-Ferrand), May 26 (Nantes) and June 9, (Dijon). On November 30, fours concerts in Russia were announced in the Russian media, then on January 26, 2009, one concert in Amnéville.

In February 2009 Farmer's tour producers TS3 cancelled the Eastern European tour dates without giving any explanation. However, there had been rumours for months that the local producers were facing economic problems. At the same time new concerts were announced for June 28 in Saint Petersburg and July 1 in Moscow, organised by different local partners. For the concert in Geneva, the technical problems relating to the enormity of the structures have been resolved (the stadium of Geneva has a smaller capacity than the Stade de France, Saint-Denis).[19] Various media revealed that the stage should have been made out of glass,[20] installed more than three metres above the ground.[21] However, these details about stage design were denied by her creative producer Thierry Suc.[22] He also explained that there will be some differences between shows in stadiums and those in hall.[23] Jean-Paul Gaultier confirmed to be the fashion designer for this tour.[24] It was also announced that the entire show will be filmed "with very sophisticated means of the tridimensional cinema".[25]

Farmer did the rehearsals in Nice a few days before the beginning of her concert tour.[26] The concerts in stadiums were announced as different as the others, because the stage was bigger and there was additional material.[27]

Controversy[edit]

The poster of the tour, first revealed on the Internet and then shown in Paris, generated a controversy. Indeed, on this poster, Farmer is lying on the ground, with distraught eyes, as if she had been thrown through a window. As a result, some media criticized this poster, that might suggest a suicide.[28][29][30][31][32] Other media believed that it refers to a murder or a rape, or perhaps a message of farewell from the singer to her public.[33] Others saw it as a promotional strategy.[34] It was the subject of debate among Farmer's fans and critics on the Internet.[35]

Commercial success[edit]

A huge rush took place on sites purchasing tickets, such as Fnac,[36] with over 25,000 connections per minute.[37] Some angry Internet users expressed their dissatisfaction about this problem.[38] The same thing happened on April 1 for the second concert at the Stade de France.[39] According to Michael Drieberg, the director of Live Music, the concert at Geneva is the most quickly sold of all time in Switzerland.[40][41]

The concert of September 12 (80,000 places)[42] was sold out in two hours only.[43][44] To date, it is a record.[45] About 17,000 tickets were sold in two hours for the first concert in Geneva, which is also a record,[46] and this show (34,000 places)[47] was more or less sold out after one week.[48] The second concert at the Stade de France was sold out in a very short time[49][50] (one hour and a quarter)[51] which is a record.[52] For the concert scheduled in Brussels, many people slept in the street, in front of the stores selling the tickets to be sure to get a place.[53] Therefore, 30,000 tickets were also sold quickly.[54] For the concert at the Palais Nikaia, the Fnac store has been raided by the fans before the opening hours, on May 23, and ⅔ of the tickets were sold on the day.[55] The same day, the first two concerts in Nantes were announced as sold out.[56] On May 26, the concerts in Marseille were almost sold out and, according to the French newspaper La Provence, the shows could yield about 9,5 millions euros.[57] On 27 May, Universal Music published a press release about exceptional sales of tickets for the concert : 100,000 places sold in one day on Friday, May 23, 2008, which is a record.[58]

Many tickets were sold extremely expensive through unofficial ways.[59] As a result, many disgruntled fans signed a petition on the Internet to denounce these abuses.[60][61][62][63] In Switzerland, Farmer established a new record, selling over 58,000 places.[64]

Finally, on the stage, there were two enormous skeletons inspired by Transit, a sculpture of the 15th century, a central staircase, and some naked models (which look like the doll on the album cover) placed in a library, and orange was the predominant color.[65][66] Six autobuses for the 120 technicians, twenty semi-trailers of 38 tons, 380 light sources, 300 kilo watt of electric power and a giant screen were used for each performance.[67]

Critical reception[edit]

The show received almost always positive reviews from critics. Nice Matin qualified the show as "both grandiose and precise, but also full of emotion and shared pleasure".[68] La Montagne and Le Parisien stated : "A impressive set design, a profusion of lights, screens, guitars, dances (...). One heck of a spectacle",[69] "what a raging show !".[70] According to La Provence, many fans were very satisfied by the concert and found it "grandiose".[71] France Soir noted : "The design is detailed, ghostly, bathed in darkness and gigantism, supported by polished visual effects and amazing lightings".[66] Coop said Farmer showed a "nive energy and an undeniable charisma".[72] For Télé Moustique, the a concert in Douai was neat, but some choreographies were disappointing.[73] About the concerts in Belgium, Le Soir concluded: "Nothing to do: Mylène remains irresistible",[74] while La Dernière Heure found the show boring.[75] Nord Éclair deemed the show as "ambitious, impressive, extremely precise and visually amazing".[76]

The concerts in Geneva received generally positive reviews and a few criticism. Farmer "has bewitched her fans in a show perfectly staged" (Le Matin Dimanche),[77] "the star offered a perfect show in every way" (20 Minutes),[78] but with "a catastrophic sound system, an extremely predictable, little dynamic, little intimist singer. Her staff is little emphasized" (Actualité française).[79]

Indoor concerts[edit]

No Song Costume Choreography Comment[119]
1 "D'entre les morts" Tight suit, showing the human's muscular system. No The stage is covered with darkness, until the iris of Farmer shortly appears on a big screen in the middle. This happens several times until the iris one time "opens". An animated kind of film is shown, including skeletons. At the end, the screen gives sight behind itself, showing Farmer in a skeleton-like cage above a staircase.
2 "Paradis inanimé" Same costume No Farmer goes out of the cage and downstairs to perform the song. This live version is nearly identical to the album version.
3 "L'Âme-stram-gram" * Farmer: Same costume
* Dancers: Same costumes like Farmer.
It is nearly the same choreography like at the Mylenium Tour. The introduction features a new one with first featuring only Farmer who is joined by the other dancers until the main part begins. It is a very dynamic electro remix featuring some soundsamples of the original version.
4 "Je m'ennuie" Same costume The choreography, created by Farmer herself, is very simple with mainly repetitive arm movements throughout the whole song. This version is similar to the original one, but features some extra sounds.
5 "Appelle mon numéro" Glittering short dress with red cape with hood. No Before the main part, similar to the album version, begins, there's an interlude lasting about one minute and a half.
6 "XXL" Same costume No This version is similar to the one at the Avant que l'ombre... à Bercy concert series.
7 "À quoi je sers..."
"L'amour n'est rien... in Russia.
Same costume No Farmer first sits on the stairs performing the first verse of the song and then stands up. It is an acoustic version.
8 "Pourvu qu'elles soient douces" * Farmer: Same costume
* Dancers: Red coats.
The same choreography as in other concert tours is used, with only a few changes during the musical bridge. This version uses many electronic sounds. The introduction is composed of Farmer's voiced mixed like at the beginning of the 'Remix club', released in 1988.
9 "Point de suture" Blue dress. No Before the main part of the song begins, there is an introduction lasting about one minute and a half. The big screen of the beginning of the show appears again in the middle of the stage, showing the sun seen from underwater. During the main part, which is nearly identical to the album version, the screen shows a man and a woman together performing an unconventional choreography naked. This choreography depicts the meaning of the song.
10 "Nous souviendrons-nous"
cancelled in Russia.
Same costume No This version is very simple, only composed of strings and a few piano notes.
11 "Rêver" Same costume No This version is also very simple.
12 "Ainsi soit je..." Same costume No Farmer is accompanied by Yvan Cassar on the piano. One chorus at the end has been omitted.
13 Interlude: "Avant que l'ombre..." Same costume No It is a very dramatic instrumental interlude. During the beginning, Farmer goes up the stairs and then disappears from the stage.
14 "Libertine" * Farmer: Asymmetrical business suit composed with a white tutu underneath.
* Dancers: White tutu and white or black jacket.
Farmer and her dancers perform a new choreography in which elements of classical ballet are incorporated during the verses. This is a very dynamic French rock version. The screens in the back show chessmen.
15 "Sans contrefaçon" Same costumes The choreography is similar to the one used for the other concert tours, with some changes during the musical bridge. Many guitar sounds are used throughout the refrains and the bridge.
16 "Je te rends ton amour"
"Je t'aime mélancolie" and "Fuck Them All" in Russia.
Same costume without the jacket. No The stage is covered with red light, while Farmer is performing the song. It is very similar to the original version.
17 "Dégénération" * Farmer: Black leather jacket with a golden cross in the back.
* Dancers: Beige jackets with a black cross in the back.
Farmer appears standing on a cockroach-shaped chair, while the dansers perform a dynamic modern choreography. She then stands up and walks to a platform which then raises in the air. This version is preceded by an introduction of about one minute and a half. The main part is nearly identical to the album version.
18 "Désenchantée" Same costume The same choreography as in the other concert tours is used, with a few changes. The sound is very futuristic, featuring many synthesizer sounds. At the end, Farmer sings again the chorus two times, first a cappella with the audience and then again with musical accompaniment.
19 "C'est dans l'air" Same costume Same choreography as used in the music video, including some additional moves. Some sounds of the 'Extended club mix' are used during the musical bridge. After the main part of the song, the musicians and dancers are presented on the screen above the stairs.
20 "Si j'avais au moins..." Long white dress No The stage is bathed in red and orange lights. During the song, the many screens display images of lava erupting. The last musical bridge is extended and very dramatical, while part of the staircase raises and reveals a tunnel into which Farmer goes and disappears. At the end the stage is covered with darkness again.
