There are some artists who have been with us for such a long time that they have become the soundtrack to our lives. Julien Clerc, who has been in the business for fifty years, is one such figure, as his life runs in tandem with our own. In spring 1968, his album Cavalerie spoke for a whole generation, the one which took the musical Hair to the heights and concluded that Ce n’est rien (not to mention the magnificent Patineur on the B-side). Julien Clerc then released Préférence and Femmes (reflecting the women in his own life and more generally) and a tender Je vous aime. His inner rock star surfaced with La Fille aux bas nylons. This was followed by more nostalgic and socially committed albums and songs including Utile, Double enfance, Fou peut-être and most recently Fans Je vous aime, an elegant salute to his fans with a compilation tailored to their tastes. This is a unique concert on the avenue Montaigne where the invitation Si on chantait (Let’s sing) takes us through a whole lifetime in the space of an evening.
