MANU F**KING CHAO!!!
Yesterday afternoon the only thing I knew about Manu Chao was his name. After seeing him in concert last night with his band 'La Ventura' I'm almost upset with myself that I hadn't heard his stuff before... This was one of the best concerts I have seen in a long time. So much fire, so much energy from Manu, the band and the crowd. When they went off stage before the first encore, the crowd was so loud that it was distorting in my ears. Haven't heard a deafening crowd like that for years. It seemed like only 20% of the crowd were Aussies, the rest, South Americans and Spaniards etc. The second the band walked on stage, the crowd absolutely erupted and by the end of the first song I was hooked. Two and a half hours of Me, Manu and 2499 of my closest friends.
