7.ย  Appearing on Canal Plus in Cannes, France
Major-Lazer-Cannes

While we were in Cannes for Cannes Film Festival, we performed on French TV station Canal Plus. As they were introducing us, a suicide bomber shot his gun in the air, yelled he had a grenade, and cleared the block with us watching from the stairs to the stage. Police were there in seconds, tackled him, and called everyone back to watch the show. The show’s celebrity guest, Christoph Waltz, was not pleased to have to be there after that, or maybe it was cuz I had to sing Busy Signal’s verse on “Bumaye.” It did inspire this sitcom promo pic after the performance, tho.
