Justice Rocks Packed D-A-N-C-E Floor at Electric Factory

Published On March 21, 2012 | Concerts

It’s been years since they appeared in Philadelphia but on Tuesday night, at the Electric Factory, it was sweet Justice for music fans.

French duo Jus†ice sold out the venue well ahead of the show date and the crowd on hand was buzzing as they entered the venue.

Justice’s massive visual set up, complete with their signature cross, took up the entire stage, towering over the audience.

Xavier de Rosnay and Gaspard Augé took the stage just after 9pm to a roar of cheers and wasted no time diving into their set, opening with “Genesis”. The main floor of the Electric Factory (as well as the upstairs area) went nuts.

From there it was onto more Justice hits including “Phantom (Part 1)”, “D-A-N-C-E” (a great extended version), “DVNO”, “Stress”, “Waters of Nazareth”, and “Audio, Video, Disco” (which they ended their main set on).

During that time fans danced, crowd surfed, and even formed a mosh pit (something you don’t see too much of at EDM shows). The mega-stage rig opened one more than one occasion to reveal a piano that was played by both Gaspard and Xavier (as he chain smoked cigarettes on stage).

After only an hour they left the stage before returning to play a three song encore that included “On’n’on” and “Phantom (Part 2)”.

Before the clock struck 10:30pm the entire show was over, leaving many fans disappointed at the length of the performance and the early ending time. Numerous shouts of “Where’s the after-party?” could be heard as people filed out of the venue, as well as in the parking lot outside.
