Notes: Jarre hosts a TV show for Eiffel Tower’s 100th anniversary.

Michel Drucker’s very popular show “Champs-Elysées” on TV channel Antenne 2 celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Eiffel Tower. On this special occasion, ten years after his breakout performance in La Concorde in paris, Jarre performs in Paris again, this time “London Kid”, excerpt of the Revolutions album. He does so from the Trocadéro, with the Eiffel Tower as background, with Hank Marvin, the legendary guitarist from The Shadows.

Later that year, Jarre intended to be part of the July 1989 bicentenary of Bastille’s day he’d be working for, but eventually that did not lead. On Trocadéro, there were 15.000 people to applause the performance.
