The reunited Dead Can Dance was one of the last acts to perform on Sunday night to close the first weekend of the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, performing an 11 p.m. set in what seemed like a windstorm.

I’ve seen DCD live last year in Barcelona and their performance still sends shivers down my spine.
It was amazing to see them perform so wonderfully in such harsh conditions. Mad respect.
edit: Black Sun is actually track 6. Great show.
I watched this show live via stream, and it was excellent! Those crazy winds really added some cool atmosphere to the proceedings. You just can’t beat an outdoor show!
Add: Hearing them pull out “Black Sun” was a real treat too!
I would follow Lisa Gerard’s voice to the ends of the earth.
Thanks for posting this!!! Had no idea they even played. Loved every second, even the hiccup at the start of Agape. ; )
