Born Rocker Tour
Runtime: 2 hr 17 min2013 live release recorded at the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy for the French legend's 70th birthday celebration. An icon in the French-speaking world since the beginning of his career, he was considered by some to have been the French Elvis Presley.

Olympia: Spectacle Rouge
Runtime: 1 hr 27 minBecaud was a French singer, composer and actor, known as "Monsieur 100.000 Volts" for his energetic performances.

When asked to explain his gift he said, "A flower doesn't understand botanics."
Le Tour de -M-
Runtime: 1 hr 60 minChedid created ‑M- as means of overcoming his shyness on stage and also as a way of distancing his work from that of his father and grandmother. The pseudonym comes from Chedid's first initial but also refers to the similar sounding French word aime, meaning love. The character ‑M- is a superhero, noted for having a playful nature, and recognized for his flamboyant costumes (primarily monochrome suits with slim trousers and long jackets with upward pointed collars) and hair styled into the shape of an M.
Comme On A Fait

After their split, he recorded a single album (Platre et Ciment) with Téléphone's drummer Richard Kolinka as Aubert'n'Ko (1987), and in 1989 released his first solo album, Bleu Blanc Vert. Between his work with Téléphone and his successful solo career, Aubert is one of the most iconic singer/songwriters of his generation.
VIXI Tour XVII
Runtime: 2 hr 5 minMusically, Thiéfaine draws mostly from classic rock, with rare nods to the latest musical trends, and generally leaves the arranging to a collaborator. His songs are most notable for instantly recognizable lyrics, with their trademarks streams of consciousness, surreal and often extreme or dark imagery, often tinged with comedy, cynicism, literary references, neologisms and liberal use of scientific, long or foreign words.
Runtime: 2 hr 31 minFrench singer, songwriter and actor. His characteristically 'broken' voice makes for a very distinctive vocal style. Several of his songs are popular classics in France, including the sea tale "Dès que le vent soufflera", the irreverent "Laisse béton", the ballad "Morgane de toi" and the nostalgic "Mistral gagnant". However, with the exception of a recording of "Miss Maggie" in English and a franglais recording of It is not because you are, his work is almost unknown outside the French-speaking world.
Dutronc au Casino
Runtime: 2 hr 51 minSinger/songwriter Jacques Dutronc gained popularity in his native France with his provocative songs that matched the rebellious spirit of the '60s so well. Though he was absent from the musical scene for nearly a decade, pursuing a film career, he successfully returned to music in the early '80s and still remains one of the most popular performers in the French-speaking world. The “Dutronc au Casino” is an exquisite live performance of all his most appreciated songs.
