Aussie boys Tame Impala have been pelted with cushions during a concert in France, but apparently that’s a good thing — think of it as a sign of just how much French fans enjoyed the band’s impressive live show.
Performing at Lyon’s amazing Théâtres Romains de Fourvière (The Ancient Roman Theatre) on Monday night, 4th July, Kevin Parker and company were showered in cushions by around 4,000 fans as they played their Lonerism album cut Apocalypse Dreams.
Video of the moment the crowd decided to throw the cushions they’d been given by the venue has since emerged, and it’s pretty darn beautiful:
Cushions were being thrown around throughout Tame Impala’s set, mixing in with the band’s multicoloured confetti…
…and this was the cushiony aftermath:

For some reference, here’s what the Théâtres Romains de Fourvière looks like without any cushions or Tame Impala craziness. It’s still pretty spectacular:
