The famous electronic music composer Jean-Michel Jarre, who has just published worldwide album "Oxygene 3", will offer a concert at Santander on 29 April, as announced by the musician himself Efe, within a project " for the coming months large outdoor concerts. "
"For me the live music is another form of expression. I like all kinds of shows and I like to develop very different formats, for festivals, for flags, etc, adapting the scenery to where I act," he noted.
Jarre, who has sold over 80 million albums, culminating this December 12 in Paris "Electronica-Tour", a tour of great stadiums in Europe to promote their albums "Electronica 1: The Time Machine" (2015) and "Electronica 2: The Heart of Noise "(2016).
