12 October 2019 at 8.30 p.m. – SALLE PRINCE PIERRE – JEANNE ADDED CONCERT – BOTH SIDES TOUR: an emotional storm! In 2015, Jeanne Added released her first album with the premonitory title “Be sensational”. It was love at first sight for the public and the press! Jeanne Added dazzles, amazes, illuminates. In 2018, “Mutate”, the first track of her second album, “Radiate” (Double “Victoires de la musique 2019” of top female artist and rock album of the year), is an arrow that pierces the heart. The voice of Jeanne Added draws here on undulating nuances that explore the dizziness and promises of life with an epidermic, contagious emotion. With “Both Sides”, a performance in three tableaux, the singer and musician reinvents her repertoire and ventures alone into new dimensions. For this intimate creation, she jostles the space of the stage to see and hear in another light, and invites the scenographer Eric Soyer (Joël Pommerat) to give life to his own vision.
