IDLES have shared a full stream of their 2018 Paris show, filmed at the legendary Le Bataclan – watch it below.
Throughout this week, the band shared the performance in four parts including special Q&As with each band member. Watch the full performance below.
The Bataclan show marked the end of the band’s mammoth tour for second album ‘Joy As An Act Of Resistance’.
Reviewing the 2018 album, NME wrote: “The fun punks’ second album is an instant classic, one that people will turn to in times of need for years to come.”
Last December, IDLES released ‘A Beautiful Thing: IDLES Live at Le Bataclan’, a live album of the Bataclan performance.

Speaking of the show in question last year, the band said: “Our show at Le Bataclan was the end of a very long journey for us. On that tour, we learnt so much about ourselves, each other and the audiences we have grown with over the past 10 years.
“That show was nothing short of catharsis and nothing more than love. We love what we do and the people who have carried us here, there was no hiding that night at Le Bataclan and we are so very grateful that the moment was captured in all its glory, love and fatigue. Long live the open-minded and long live the moment.”
IDLES have been working on their upcoming third album across the last year. Last September, a new photo posted to Instagram revealed that Bad Seeds member Warren Ellis looks set to appear on the new record, while in-demand producer Kenny Beats has also been working with the Bristol band on the third album.
