tom waits /// live in paris 1979

In 1979, Tom Waits performed in the land of striped shirts, cheese, and labor strikes--France. The performance took place at Theatre le Palace. I think that's French for the Palace Theater. Footage from that night has been divinely resurrected from the archives courtesy of the Tom Waits official webpage.

Part 1

"Tom Waits performs at Theatre le Palace in Paris, France. This was recorded for French television and broadcast on the program “Palace One” back in 1980. The first part here features the songs “Heartattack and Vine” and “‘Til the Money Runs Out.” I will post the additional three segments shortly. Please enjoy." -

Part 2

"More great footage of Tom Waits performing in 1979 at the Theatre le Palace in Paris. This second installment features “Annie’s Back in Town” from the Paradise Alley soundtrack and “I Wish I Was in New Orleans” from the pivotal 1976 album Small Change."
