Remaining Long Format #13 – Live Albums 1990-2000
The madness goes on with a plethora of new massive live albums released from 1990 to 2000. These albums perfectly summarize the highs that he reached. Over the course of 8 years, he went from Bercy (17,000 tickets) to the Parc des Princes (40,000 tickets) to the Stade de France (80,000 tickets) to the Tour Eiffel (free show, attendance of 400,000 plus 8 million TV viewers live). By that point he was definitely the biggest star that had ever been in France.
Even with 7 live albums released in 10 years only, they routinely sold half a million units. They were all using the same massively popular tunes from the albums most notably Le Pénitencier, Derrière L’Amour and Gang.
