Mylène Farmer: Avant Que L’Ombre… A Bercy (2006)

Another incredible accomplishment for the French pop superstar, this concert is likely to stand as her signature live performance. From the opening minutes it’s evident that this is a meticulous production, with the singer drawing every bit of anticipation and drama from each song and her audience playing along, enraptured and nearly delirious. With stand-out numbers like “Peut-Etre Toi,” “Fuck Them All,” and “Sans Contrefacon,” the show glides along effortlessly, and its climax – the grandiose, operatic “Avant Que L’Ombre” – is a breathtaking, jaw-dropping testament to the artist’s creativity and her ongoing instinct to create intimacy out of enormity.
