Jean-Michel Jarre live in Cardiff - review
Venue: Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff
Jean-Michel Jarre reaches new sonic heights in the Welsh capital
Blue light and soft ambient synths wash over 20,000 of us as we sit in this large, featureless venue, awaiting Jean-Michel Jarre and the first night of his full Electronica World Tour. You have to wonder when this pioneer’s artistic stock was quite so high. His brace of Electronica albums has seen him introduced to a new generation of fans through collaborations with younger electronica artists. And besides, in these benighted times we need the type of spectacular light show only he can provide.
