International icon, the beloved French chanson entertainer Charles Aznavour will be performing on July 6 while British art rocker Chris de Burgh will be putting on his show on July 8. Tickets are already on sale at all Virgin Megastore outlets and Boueri Press. [Link]

I don’t like De Burgh much but Charles Aznavour, born as Shahnour Vaghenagi Aznavourian, is one of my favorite French singers. I was hesitant first to buy tickets because Aznavour is 87 years old, but after I read that he’s on a 21-concerts tour and he’s been praised for his latest performances, I am more excited now to go watch him probably one last time.

My favorite Aznavour songs are Emmenez moi, La Boheme, Hier Encore and Isabelle.

Aside from Aznavour coming to Jounieh’s festival, I must say I am disappointed with the program for this year. They should have gotten one or two recent artists to attract all sorts of crowds.
