Bastille, Saku Suurhall – Tallinn, 06/03/2017
14 July 1789, a crowd in Paris seized the Bastille fortress-prison marking one of the most important events of the French Revolution. 14 July 1986, singer Dan Smith was born in London. Okay we know it, the two events are not even remotely comparable, but they’re in a way connected: this is how Smith was brought to form a band and call it Bastille, and this is the show we had the chance to follow last night in Tallinn at Saku Suurhall.
Bastille don’t need much of an introduction: we have followed them in Pistoia last summer and in Rome in 2014, so we might even be considered a kind of habitué of their shows. Last night we were expecting a great performance, and that is exactly what we got.
Opening acts by the local electro-pop artist NOËP and by Matt Wills, who is touring with Bastille and apparently really enjoying the Baltics too (we are glad to see it and we totally agree with you, Matt). The show overall has been really entertaining and the crowd followed all the moves performed by Dan: he walks up and down a lot on the stage, round and round, and he’s able to turn what might be a simple live show into a truly wonderful experience. We are not exaggerating, and who was there with us last night knows it pretty well.
Get a hint of the general vibes we felt last night at the Saku Suurhall with our pictures. Bastille, Matt Wills and NOËP: for you!
