Great audience in Leipzig

It is a privilege to play the city of Bach.. After a perfect sound check and some adjustments that I wanted to make with Olivier and Ansar for the Lights and Lasers, the concert started on time. Everybody was in a good mood. The photographer, Christine Ferreyra, arrived today. She has done amongst the best photos of the previous concerts and it is great to have her around for a few days..

The concert went rather well, with good energy on stage, I got a few problems with my in-ear monitors, and Francis had MIDI issues on his Synthex right in the middle of RV2, despite that the audience was really grooving up until the end.

Tomorrow, I would like to add some new video on Oxygene 4 which I originally planned..

I decided to add new tracks (apart from the Adagio I am playing at the Statistics moment) after March because I really want to focus on the sound, performance and visuals first. Fans will have quite a few surprises during the year anyway.

By the way, thank you for your great comments since the beginning of this leg of the 2010 tour, I really appreciate, and I'm trying my best to improve the show night after night.

For those who know JMJ, starting a show on time is an extraordinary feat...

Great to hear more new tracks will be coming after March. Maybe you could ring the changes with some of your hits and change them around. I bet the public would love to hear Revolutions again! The show is looking better and better. I like the new reflected laser in Equinoxe 5, it looks like light towers rising into the sky. See you in London in October

Fantanstic sound, a nice laser show and over 2 hours the Best Of J.-M. Jarre.

Hi Jean Michel,

although I can't see you live, I still enjoy the photos you and the fans make.
I was there when you didn't have the big screens at the back and I must say I envy the people who see these shows now a bit, it looks awesome!

I love the images of the analog aquipment.
I couldn't make out if the moog modular is pic originally taken from your own gear or the one Arturia uses for their software version of it.
I totally love it, wish I could be there......

Man, this sucks big time!
Make a damn good DVD with a lot of extras, will you?

you were the person who made me wanted to play keyboards almost 30 years ago.
I thank you for that.
And of course you still remain a big influence on my work.

Just a question on the side, why don't you play some tracks from Teo and Tea?
I hope to meet you once in person there are so many questions about music.
But that is probably wishful thinking.
I must admit that you seem somewhat relaxter in the east of europe than when you play in the west.
I hear about handshakes, giving autopgraphs etc.

I sat in le Marigny at the front row, I could almost smell your aftershave LOL!
But after the show it was thanks and au revoir.
Same thing in Holland in the Heineken Music hall.

I leave the answer to you because you don't reply ever.

Have fun and don't try to break your gear, like you did last time. :-)

Looking foward to hearing you again in Manchester. I am bringing my wife and Children with me for the first time, and they are exited.

Good luck with the rest of the tour..
