  • Live Report: Serj Tankian Viza @ Le Bataclan on 30/08/10

  • Adrian, who had the chance to meet the frontman of System Of A Down before his concert after a contest, sent his live report on RYL! Back on the evening of Monday, August 30 as if you were there!

    The meeting:
    One week to the day before this concert full arch, I learn that I won a Meet & Greet with the hero of my adolescence: Serj Tankian. I was warned to prepare well what I say because at the moment I only come to mind as banalities. Then, the week has passed without my being able to find anything that can make me look like anything but a fan like the others. But after all I not speak English? I'm okay to improvise something ... So I found the other winners before the tail where the hardcore fans were already waiting for 11 o'clock in the morning. We expect ultimately take longer than expected because Serj had not yet completed its interviews. Meanwhile, we get a lot of offers from guys in front of the tail and a dealer asked us if we sold our backstage pass. A few more minutes and we were ushered into the Bataclan empty. In fact if not empty because we were able to attend the bar at the end of the repetition of Viza. I do not know exactly how long we waited there, but obviously it has seemed like an eternity. Then we were taken to the door to the left of the stage and we are asked to put us in groups of two. I was the last to go and gradually as we expected, the first dozen spectators rushed by to the holy barrier. The meeting took place in a small space between two doors and not in a room as we thought. We therefore nose to nose with the singer. It was very fast. We were promised ten minutes, it will eventually fivefold since we went in pairs. As expected, when one is faced with Serj, we realize we did not have much to say: "Hello how are you?" "Good and you?" "Although I am a little sick." "It's going to go for tonight?" "Yes." I make him sign "Elect The Dead" and covers the same name and "Steal This Album" I slipped inside. We then proposed a photo to two and then hop, Serj bye!

    The concert:
    I then headed to the balcony and put me in the middle, behind the board. Place the first part, Viza. A group composed of nine members of Armenian origin and from different countries. For example, the Greek singer and keyboardist Japanese. This is the mix of nationalities is the origin of their name. Viza full of energy. Of course only new, it is difficult to move on the stage of Bataclan. But this will not prevent the percussionist run in all directions, to titillate the singer, engaged at one point in a duel with him cry.

    Not part of a group have been so well treated. Even before their entry into the public arena chanted "Viza! Viza!". The pit was almost as unbridled as it was for the star of the evening. Also note that we almost had a right to recall, but it did not probably because of the timing to comply. 
 Many communication from them. Between each song, the singer drops a nice "hello". But also small introductions to songs like "We have violins tonight" before "Breakout The Violins", "We'll talk about your history" before "Napoleon Complex" and even "This morning we went to the Louvre to steal Mona Lisa, but we have not succeeded, it's pretty tough these days "before" My Mona Lisa ". The French public is under the spell of Viza and it is very likely that a small fanbase will be if repass by our countries!

    After a short wait times some will use the concert to address gaps and serene, one sees the classic Parisian musicians who come to the right place at the scene: keyboardist / conductor for the occasion, three violins, two cellos and a copper. Finally came the members of the Flying Cunts of Chaos, then Serj Himself. They attack entry with two titles wildest and schizophrenic's first album, namely "Beethoven's Cunt" and "Lie Lie Lie". 
 Just as we had said before the concert, Serj was ill, he has a sore throat and apologized to the public. After what he showed later in his set, many people would have the same vocal power while having a sore throat! 


    During the first pieces, it was difficult to hear the vocalist. It was not really his voice, but a bad balance that was predominant in the lower voice and especially the classical instruments. Indeed, the violins had trouble being heard behind the play of the talented drummer Troy Zeigler. This trouble was settled subsequently with Serj and asked that the public's help to sing as a chorus, which lasted throughout the concert. 
 


    Arrive "Sky Is Over" and "Feed Us" where the orchestra was able to show his talents. Then the first novel of this concert from the upcoming album Mr. Tankian. A title to the dynamic rock whose power is reinforced by the traditional instruments where Oriental influences are perfectly integrated. 


    Serj speaks then of "Baby" and is roughly the same speech at the Elysee Montmartre and Rock en Seine: This song came to him in a dream when he was visiting Paris for a tour with DICO. Then he admits he once had a dream like the night before. Maybe a new song? He then asked the audience which of us know better Praise The Lord And Pass The Amunition and selects a certain Julian. Which will prove to be the best talker of the evening, he runs, jumps went from one side of the stage to another, heating the public, do raise their hands. Serj sings the verses and the chorus that leaves him singing with gestures toward the audience: "Come Lay It Down" Burn It Down! Lay It Down! The guns above-the ground! " Even if the lyrics were sometimes rough, we can say that it is very well drawn. Then it's time for "Saving Us", "Blue" (cover of SOAD), "Yes It's Genocide" (a new song entirely in Armenia). The musicians of the Flying Cunts Of Chaos then engaged in a slightly jazzy instrumental improvisation and quite pleasant. It then introduces "Deserving" and "Borders Are" (by which Serj give its views on the borders) of "Imperfect Harmony". "Honking Antelope" where the band fits perfectly before "Electron", another novel.
    Finally beauty, "Empty Walls", the flagship title of the first game played, and roused the audience on the balconies so far remained seated. The latter will remain standing to initiate a recall. It was then that "Money" comes so close the show.

    Serj Tankian has offered a set list comprises the whole of "Elect The Dead" with the exception of "The Unthinking Majority" and five tracks of upcoming album "Imperfect Harmony", an instrumental improvisation and "Blue" . (Cover of SOAD and bonus acoustic first studio effort) We leave the room with the feeling of having witnessed something unique. Maybe the next time Paris 2011?
