Jean-Michel Jarre brings his Electronica and Oxygene to the Greek Theatre in Berkeley


French artist Jean-Michel Jarre will be in Berkeley for a unique concert at the Greek Theatre on May 26.


Last January, Jean-Michel Jarre announced a 9-concert tour from Canada to the US in May 2017. This is the first ever North American tour for this amazing French artist who celebrates 3 new albums in less than 2 years. 


Jean-Michel Jarre is the master of gigantic concerts where his electronic music is carried and accompanied by a sophisticated game of lights of any kind. He performed all over the world in the 80's and 90's at concerts that gathered crowds bigger than any presiential inaugurations did in the past, even recently.


In the United States, he is renowned for a giant concert in Houston in 1986 for the 150th anniversary of the City and Texas State.


After having been quite silent for almost 10 years (Téo et Téa was in 2007), Jean-Michel Jarre released no less than 3 albums in barely 2 years: "Eletronica 1: The Time Machine", "Electronica 2: The Heart of Noise" et "Oxygène 3". Keep in mind that the first Oxygene was released in 1976... that makes him also he champion of pretty long careers!


His come back has been greeted everywhere : he was nominated at the Grammy Awards as ''Best Dance/Electronic Album'' competing with Flume among others and at the French Mucic Awards, ''Les Victoires de la Musique''.



Jean-Michel Jarre announced on January 23, his North American tour with 9 concerts with renowned venues such as the Bell Center in Montreal, the Radio City Music Hall in New York or the Greek Theatre in Berkeley. Almost small intimate concerts in comparison with the giant events he has been known for.


There will be a bit of Electronica 1, Electronica 2, Oxygene 3, some cult pieces and a mesmerizing experience of sight and sounds. Let's add some fog in Berkeley, and that should be just perfect.


The show should definitely be memorable at the Greek Theatre. We were there April 17 for Radiohead. First time for us in this very special venue with a great layout allowing everybody to enjoy a great time over there.


See you in Berkeley on May 26 for a ''one of its kind'' concert.
