Legendary French electronic music pioneer Jean-Michel Jarre will perform a spectacular outdoor concert at Masada on April 6. The concert is part of a large-scale campaign to raise awareness about the environmental issues the Dead Sea is facing. With the decline of the water measuring more than a meter a year, environmentalists have warned that it could dry up by 2050.
Tickets range from NIS 490 to NIS 3,000. For tickets, call *2207.
Famed for staggering visuals and the use of cutting-edge digital technology, Jarre has a career that dates back to his 1976 global breakthrough hit album Oxgene (sales of 12 million, the best-selling French album ever). He has performed vast concerts in locations such as the Pyramids of Giza and has set and broken Guinness World records, including one for an audience of 2.5 million in front of La Défense skyline in Paris. Jarre also performed to an audience of 3.5 million in Moscow to celebrate the city’s 850th anniversary.
