Comments : It took me 16 years to see PJ Harvey again (last time was in Nîmes in 2001), so I was really looking forward to both tonight's and tomorrow's performances a lot. The line up of the current tour is absolutely stunning with Mick Harvey, James Johnston, John Parish, Terry Edwards... and both shows sold out almost instantly. Gladly we managed to secure our front row center spots. The show exceeded my expectations and I had an amazing time.
