Charles Aznavour, a Paris-born son of Armenian immigrants, gained his first notoriety in the late forties of the last century by the equally legendary Edith Piaf, who for many years his mentor would be.

His biggest hits he scored in the sixties and seventies, including “Les Comedians”, “Hier Encore”, “La Bohème” and “Emmenez-Moi”.

Different numbers reached also an English-speaking audience, thanks to translations that were brought to the big names as Bing Crosby and Shirley Bassey. Aznavour brought itself also some English songs, especially “She” was a success.

Despite his blessed age Aznavour rpm. Also in 2014 he was still in a sold-out Lotto Arena, with a very appreciated concert. “The only thing I really pity was that there are apparently a lot of people no more tickets were being hit”, let Aznavour about know.

“At the organization, but also through my website and Facebook, a stream of emails and messages within of cynical fans who asked whether there is still an extra concert was in Antwerp. Throughout my career, I listened to my fans and tried them not to disappoint, and I’m not going to be there now to begin.”

The show of Sunday, december 4, is still not sold out. There are still tickets available starting from 59 euro per person. (Belga)
