At the end of 1998, Venus would perform its show "Kiss
From The Ghost" two more times at Charleroi (Belgium).
Here's the leaflet, front and back.
This is not a concert. This is not theatre. "Kiss
from the ghost" mixes intimately notes to stage play,
for a show whose heroin is the music. A baiser du fantôme
("Kiss from the ghost" in French) that materializes
the dreams of the rock band Venus : to serve their compositions
on a worthwhile "dish". A very nicely achieved
desire, in a hour that feels like a dream...
The stage's lateral walls are decorated with a plastic
material that is reminiscent of ice floe. On the background,
a screen. On the floor, small synthetic grass rugs. On the
foreground, some shoes soon put on by four young healthy
lads in clear shirts and dark trousers... A fifth man appears
: Patric Carpentier, used to set up the shows of Venus,
will be its silent orchestrator for once : the actor quivers,
gives impulsions, snorts and wanders in tempo.
A musical success accompanied by a clear and pure aesthetic,
like a journey onboard a sober video. Without show off or
fancy effects, but joyfully spectacular...
From Laurent Ancion, Le Soir, October 8, 1998.
