Thought so too, but if it's YouTube then why just not say "YouTube" to make it crystal clear? And I think it was indicated somewhere that they want to charge afterwards, but maybe it was just for the VR experience?

I mean honestly, their comms departament is not doing a great job :/

La Ville de Paris presents under the Patronage of UNESCO

Notre-Dame
Virtual Concert

“Welcome to the Other Side” is a one-off exclusive, worldwide and open-to-all, free concert experience whose ambition, beyond celebrating the New Year in a futuristic and festive way, is to send a message of hope for 2021 and for the end of the dark times we are all going through this year : a digital and virtual invitation from Paris, the City of Light, vibrant metropole of the Arts & of Culture and home to the most famous cathedral in the world. Notre-Dame has a unique place in the collective imagination, it is a symbol of the strength and of World Heritage that binds us together.

Press Release:

JEAN-MICHEL JARRE presents « WELCOME TO THE OTHER SIDE »:

a NEW YEAR’S EVE CONCERT-SPECTACULAR in virtual NOTRE-DAME

New Year’s Eve – DECEMBER 31, 2020 – 23h25 CET/Paris-time.

08th December 2020 - In partnership with the City of Paris, and under the patronage of UNESCO, Electronic Music pioneer Jean-Michel Jarre teams with French VR start-up VRrOOm to take us into the New Year with a Live-stream trailblazing concert-spectacular set in the virtual environment of the planetary landmark, Notre-Dame de Paris. The unique visual world created by Jarre in VR will also be the official midnight news image coming from the City of Paris.

"Welcome to the Other Side" is a one-off exclusive, worldwide and open-to-all, free concert experience whose ambition, beyond celebrating the New Year in a futuristic and festive way, is to send a message of hope for 2021: a digital and virtual invitation from Paris, the City of Light, vibrant metropole of the Arts & of Culture and home to the most famous cathedral in the world. Notre-Dame has a unique place in the collective imagination, it is a symbol of the strength and of World Heritage that binds us together.

Jarre’s virtual concert-spectacular invites us all to ring-in the New Year together and social virtual reality gives the possibility to party together, wherever we are, including all who are socially or geographically isolated.

The Live-stream experience on December 31, will be produced as a cutting-edge simultaneously-mixed-media creation: welcome to other side of reality, welcome into the New Year, welcome to your own personal celebration, welcome to a global party, all via your own chosen dimension:

- In total immersion on the social VR platform VRchat, accessible either simply via PC, or in virtual reality for the audience equipped with VR headsets,
- Live-streaming on Jarre’s & other social media platforms via any PC or Mac, smartphone or tablet,
- Live audio broadcast on Radio France’s France Inter, French public radio,
- Live TV broadcast by French BFM Paris news channel.

Jean-Michel Jarre will perform live from a studio near the Cathedral in Paris, whilst his avatar plays inside a virtual Notre-Dame.

The 45-minute concert that Jarre will perform will be comprised of tracks from his recent Grammy-nominated opus Electronica, as well as new reworked versions of his classics, Oxygène and Equinoxe.

The audio of the concert will be released on 01.01.2021 0:15am CET on all music streaming platforms under the title “Welcome to the Other Side – LIVE”.

Jarre, whose legendary concert-spectaculars have broken world records in attendees and took place at some of the globe’s most renowned landmarks throughout his outstanding career, have left their imprint on world-class entertainment. "Welcome to the Other Side" is an invitation to enter the other side of the mirror and to travel from the physical concert world into a virtual fantasy world.

Jarre’s visionary creativity in partnership with VRrOOm’s VR designers come together here to create a concert-spectacular that is nothing short of his benchmark outdoor performances and above all a milestone today in setting new standards for music entertainment tomorrow.

"Virtual reality is to the performing arts today what cinema was to the theatre in its early days, a kind of curiosity. I believe that VR will become tomorrow, a mode of expression in its own right. » Jean-Michel Jarre

Play it loud and watch it on a big screen !

I wonder if we get new reworks of the classics (given that he's got that new production assistant who replaced Stephane)

Not sure about his attire. This guy https://www.facebook.com/Ridwello/

I checked out his remixes on YouTube and they were pretty meh. But who knows, maybe he'll do a great job with JMJ's music.

That's him. The Facebook post in the red tracksuit alongside JMJ seems to have gone, but I'm sure that was who I was thinking of.

I'm just hoping that the reworked tracks are not derivative EDM awfulness. The "venue" is Notre Dame and it deserves a wonderful mix of delicate 1970s electronic music. This has been done before: think of Tangerine Dream in Notre Dame de Reims in 1974, and in the UK Coventry cathedral and York Minster. It would be a real missed opportunity to have 45 minutes of Electronica Vol. 1 and 2 and EDM style mixes of early works. There should be a decent section of the show at least that is early delicate material, Oxygene Pt. 1 and Equinoxe Pt.2 and Pt. 3 in their original forms. That would be fabulous.

By the way, I heard JMJ attended the Tangerine Dream Reims concert in 1974 and he found it inspiring. I think this was mentioned in a film documentary about Tangerine Dream.

TBH I wouldn't expect the setlist to be much different from his last VR endeavor.
