This is a record! 97.000 fans gathered this Saturday, May 21 at the Stade de France in Paris for the launch of the 40+1 year tour of the legendary French band: Indochine.

A structure with an impressive height

You haven’t missed it, the central structure of 150 tons of steel impresses the fans. Composed of 1400 led panels for video, the largest giant screen designed for a live concert, and containing many clusters of speakers, it took 5 days of installation 24h/24 to mount this bright and sound show. That’s not all, under these 45 meters, the tower overlooks a stage of 850 m² which is directed to the four corners of the Stade de France. Here are some figures on this show: here.
