    When in Paris promoting One More Light, Chester and Mike took the opportunity to have some fun and played a performance of Heavy with the french YouTuber and artist Waxx. It's a great performance and you can watch it here below.


    What do you think of this performance? Is this your new favourite version of Heavy? Come and discuss in our forums.

    I think this version is way better.

    Instead of burying the song in a bunch of the "PBR&B" sounds/cliches that are in half of the songs on pop radio, this version is more thoughtful and the instrumental actually builds ie Waiting for the End. This key is also way easier on Chester's voice.

    God damnit... I really like this take on it.

    It's becoming slightly frustrating how many times now the band (er sorry, Mike and Chester) themselves (so not random covers from people on YouTube trying to "rock-ify" the song) has had spins/takes on this song that I can't help but think sound better than the studio version...

    And this is coming from somebody who was fine with the studio version. I called it decent/good, was able to say I liked it, that it wasn't bad, etc.

    This is my favorite live performance of Heavy so far. Everything goes together so well with Chester's voice.

    This was actually pretty great - this is a version worth remembering.

    But I have heard Heavy enough now. If I listen to it much more it will just get annoying.

    Best perfomance of this song so far! I think this version should have been the official song, more acoustic and less electronic.

    I'm not gonna say this is how it "should" be, because I've grown to love the original for what it is, but I LOVE this! I've wanted this kind of stuff from them for so long. I just hope we get the full band doing some new kinds of performances like this soon, and they give us more tracks besides Heavy and stuff from OML.

    Guys, on LPU. On the pre sale section will a link appear when the ticket pre sale starts for London? Just wondering what site or page you actually buy the tickets on. Thanks

    I thought this was great. No Kiiara? No problem. Not taking anything away from her, but this version seems more focused on the music rather than the person being featured as a guest with the band. It plays out really well.

    Better than the real version, I would have loved for OML to have gone this kind of acoustic direction as opposed to straight pop. Maybe they'll do an Unplugged style version of it in a year or so.
