Over to Paris tonight for a mini-concert by Scottish Proto-Country/Indie band Texas, lead by the charismatic Sharleen Spiteri on vocals. Texas have gone through various hiatus periods during their almost-20 year career. This concert at the Olympia (recorded by Belgian outlet RTL2) features the band, back from a 2008 hiatus and sounding as good as ever. Billed as a “private exclusive concert”, Texas perform a mostly acoustic and stripped-down set from their usual performances. Everybody is in good form and they do some of their earlier hits. Spiteri has been going off-and-on solo since 2005 and has established a notable solo career in that time.

Tonight’s set (recorded on June 19) gives you an idea how popular they are, even in Europe, ¬†and why they’ve sold over 20 million albums during a long and productive career.

Since this is billed as “an exclusive concert”, the RTL announcers got into the habit of chatting over the intros . . .an annoyance, but for art you must suffer . . .I suppose.
