In the mythical theater, spectators will see an 85-minute film composed of archives of lives or interviews. On stage, there will be no one: no musician, no presenter. They will be backstage, like Pierre Billon, former lyricist and musical director of Johnny who will play a few pieces in the billiard room Olympia, open for the occasion. "I'm going to do three four songs I made for Jojo," says the lyricist. "These are not necessarily hits, but songs that inspired him, like 'Funny Job', for example, that we both did in the car, going on tour."
The hall with the colors of the singer
The name Johnny Hallyday will be inscribed in red letters on the pediment of the Olympia. In the concert hall, fans will see guitars on the walls, photos, vintage clothing. Everything will be in the colors of the singer. Those who have booked a VIP ticket will even be able to see a reconstructed Johnny Lodge.
Johnny is not ready to be forgotten: a symphonic concert at the AccorHotel Arena in 2020 and a musical is already in preparation.
