Tom Waits live in Paris (1979 1981)

ANTI- posted two Youtube clips (1 and 2) of Tom Waits' performance at Theatre le Palace in Paris, France in 1979 1981 The clips were recorded for French television and broadcast on the program Palace One in 1980.

The first part features the songs Heartattack and Vine and 'Til the Money Runs Out. The second part features Annie's Back in Town and I Wish I Was in New Orleans.

On Youtube parts 3 (with Wrong Side of the Road and Jersey Girl) and 4 (Step Right Up) are available as well.

UPDATE (June 8): several people remarked upon the fact that this footage was shot in March 1981, rather than in 1979. I'm no expert, so I'll take their word for it.

Tom Waits live in Paris in March 1981. This is the wrong date for this concert. He did another one in 1979, same place. He had this back up band for the 1981 concert, and he's wearing a different hat from 1979. He might be wearing the same hat as he did a few months later at the Montreal Jazz Fest, and on the cover of "One from the Heart."
