Tour dates have been announced for the French music legend that is Johnny Hallyday, with shows to
promote his forthcoming Rester Vivant album.
Rester Vivant comes out in November, his first studio album since the massive success of his 2012 L’Attente album.
True, most of his studio albums in recent hears have reached number one, but L'Attente, which saw him work with Christophe Miossec was a particularly strong commercial and critical hit.
His two subsequent live albums, On Stage which covered his L'Attente tour and Born Rocker Tour which showcased his 70th birthday gigs in Paris both reached the top three in France.
With the new collection almost upon us, Johnny has announced some extensive tour dates to support it, beginning next year and into 2016.
The tour begins in Nimes on July 2, and there are three nights at Bercy in Paris in November. There are shows at the Francofolies de la Rochelle festival, the Sporting Summer Festival in Monaco and at the Big Festival in Biarritz.
Meanwhile, shows are scheduled at the Zénith arenas and stadiums around France. Shows in Brussels and Geneva are the only gigs outside France so far, his last major tour bringing him to the UK and US among other places.
Before then there are five (sold out) nights in Bercy next month with Eddie Mitchell and Jacques Dutronc.
