Probably Fairlight Jarre was, in an interview done with Francis Rimbert after the Madrid concert of the “Oxygene in Concert” tour, one of the first sites to know about the plans of Jean Michel Jarre about making a new tour for next year 2009.
In the past Milan and Rome concerts of the current second leg of the “Oxygene in Concert” tour, some members of the team of jarre.it, the italian Jarre fan website, could speak with Rimbert about this forthcoming project for 2009.
As far as we know, the concept for this project is the same that this current tour, so the new 2009 tour is intended to be “indoor”, but with more visual effects. Also it will be a sort of “best of” spanning all the hits of Jean Michel Jarre’s career, but all the arrangements of the songs, including the more simphonic tracks like Rendez Vous 2, will be done in an absolutely electronic way.
Please note that this new 2009 tour is nothing but a project. As you know, and according with experiences in the past, we have to be very cautious with all these projects, but we let you know any new informations about this project when we know something more.
