The French spacemen descended onto Perth Esplanade on a gloomy Sunday. Forecast for the day were rain and thunder and we all brought our raincoats just in case. Except for a little drizzle, it turned out that we didn’t need them at all. The skies smiled and cleared up for us. Sweet!
An estimated 15,000 to 20,000 people turned up for this very special gig.
The cops were there too.
When we got in around 3:30pm, we proceeded to get some drinks and soak in the atmosphere. It was electric – you could feel the buzz in the air. Everyone was quite excited to be here.
Some punters dressed accordingly for the occasion. 🙂
Around 5:30pm we got hungry.
After a few more drinks …
We got our silly faces on.
As we got closer to the scheduled starting time of 8:30 pm …
The crowd started to thicken towards the stage.
The supporting acts warmed up the crowd quite well. When Daft Punk came on, the crowd went berserk.
More photos including the usual gallery of perfect strangers can be found in my Daft Punk Flickr set.
Daft Punk put on a fantastic show – the lighting special effects that are part of their act were phenomenal. The 1.5 hour show felt short but that was probably because time really flies when you are having fun! The three of us had an awesome time.
I’ll let the highlight clip (11:27) complete the story.
