Despite its jaw-dropping beauty, the Palace of Versailles in Paris is a grandiose, egotistical reminder of absolute monarchy. Phoenix, however, have taken to the storied location to evoke the simple beauties of music rather than flaunt its magnificence.
As part of La Blogotheque’s "Take Away Show" the Parisian band performed an acoustic version of "Entertainment," the lead single from their new album Bankrupt!. With sweeping aerial shots and a bright, sun-soaked backdrop, the performance is quite stunning. Watch it below.
Next week, La Blogotheque will release another video of Phoenix performing at Versailles. Ironically, it will be of the song "Bourgeois." Check back next week for more.
