We could sit here and give you a ‘concert’ review, but it would be an immense disservice to Yoann Lemoine, a/k/a/ Woodkid, who gives you so much more than just a concert. Seeing Woodkid live is essentially joining the genius artist on an odyssey, and seeing, hearing and feeling everything that he does. Integrating his trademark visual arts brilliance into his musical set, joined with live drummers and brass instruments, the experience is enthralling and keeps hold of you until the lights in the room come back on.
Yoann Lemoine’s talents know no bounds, and his vocal performance is as perfect as his presentation. Performing songs off of his album ‘The Golden Age,’ the live sound mirrored the quality of the studio recorded tracks, and the level of energy Lemoine displayed for the duration of the show was breathtaking. Addressing his joy to finally be performing in New York City, the recent Williamsburg implant noted Hurricane Sandy as the cause of his delay. The sold-out crowd was clearly ready to see Woodkid, as lines were around the corner to get in, with many people hoping to get a ticket being turned away at the door.
Speaking to Woodkid following the show, he expressed his delight with the performance, and promised an even "bigger" event, featuring a full orchestra his next time around. The Woodkid experience is growing insanely fast, and his live show only solidifies his genius, which has attracted so many fans from all over the world. The Frenchman is in the driver's seat for a prosperous future and hot-ticket whenever he is in town.
Here is our matter of fact statement for you Woodkid fans who haven’t seen him live, or people who want to experience an amazing audio/visual experience. When Woodkid is in your city, clear your schedule and book a ticket, you will not regret it.
