Manu Chao ACL 2011

Manu Chao is one of my all time favorite bands, but their live show is what sets this band apart from many. They have a charm to them that you feel at their shows, and you could see it as they were waving to the crowd before their set even began. I have about 20 minutes of footage from their set, and it was definitely one of the high points of ACL this year (as it was when they headlined awhile back). When they played La Primavera, as they chanted “que hora son, mi corazon” Manu Chao was pounding the microphone so hard against his chest that he started to bleed.... That's a heartbeat!

  1. Amazing show, please keep posting the rest of the footage. I've got some footage as well... I'll send u the link when I post mine. I felt weird when he attempted to come back to try and play Mala Vida, but could not because of the Festival's time restraint.
