... The songs of the Indochine group have necessarily already frenzied some of your evenings.

The group will be in concert on Saturday evening at the Stade de France to celebrate its 40th anniversary.

Four decades after their formation, this group, which broke the codes of the French music scene, remains very popular with the French.

An immediate success

On May 10, 1981, François Mitterrand had just been elected president.

That evening, two musicians, barely in their twenties, decided to join forces and compose their first songs by signing Indochine.

Success comes quickly.

The duo became a quartet outdated rock bands of the time like Taxi Girl.

From the summer of 1983, Nicola Sirkis, the singer with the crazy hairstyle with black ears of ears made all of France dance on

In 1985, the group released a new album, more subversive, with a hymn to tolerance as revealed by the song

3e sex

and its chorus "A masculine girl, a feminine boy".

The title

Canary Bay

, on female homosexuality even shocks the record company, which refuses to produce it.

However, the group is sold out at each concert and sells more than 750,000 albums in one year.

Indochine, a group that brings together all generations

After a slump in the 1990s, Indochine returned in 2002 with

J'ai demande à la lune

, a song that would be one of the group's greatest hits.

Since then, the group has remained very popular, which makes Nicola Sirkis proud, interviewed last year on Europe 1: "While rock is generally made for the rebellious side, the side 'we are not agreement with his parents', there, we manage to unify all the generations", he explained.

Tickets for the anniversary tour sold out within hours.

The sign that 40 years after their first success, Indochine is not outdated.

The group will be on stage in June and July in Bordeaux, Marseille, Lyon and Lille.
