We were at Eddy de Pretto's Olympia concert, this is what his Crash Coeur Tour looks like

For two evenings, in a packed Olympia, Eddy de Pretto defended his latest album, "Crash Coeur", before going on tour.

“Paris, welcome to the Crash Coeur Tour!” : it is 9 p.m. this Tuesday, April 16, 2024 when Eddy de Pretto appears on stage, at the Olympia, for his second Parisian concert. In front of a packed room, already white hot, he unveils his brand new scenography, designed to highlight "the generous and human aspect of a live show": his "own advertising billboard", symbol of our societies of consumption, a giant screen mounted on a metal structure and behind, a peaceful mountain landscape at sunrise or sunset.

On stage, everything flows together, almost without interruption. For more than an hour and a half, he plays songs from his latest album, Crash Coeur, but also older ones, like Créteil Soleil, Bateaux-Mouches, and obviously his two indisputable hits, Kid and Fête de trop, the opportunity to swap your white marcel jeans for a dazzling black sequined outfit.

With impeccable scenography, Eddy de Pretto has fun with his image, sometimes filmed by a drone circling around him, performing songs and dance steps with aplomb, in front of a definitively won over audience. The only downside, if one was necessary, was the absence of musicians, relegated to a broadcast on the giant screen, with the audience not knowing with certainty whether they were playing live or if the performance was recorded.

Including when Eddy de Pretto joins them, appearing in images, to sing A quoi bon, a song which earned him homophobic attacks on social networks and the conviction of eleven of his cyberstalkers in December 2022.

Eddy de Pretto, now thirty years old, is gaining momentum. Just like his voice, still just as accurate and recognizable, but even more assertive. Including a cappella, on several occasions, as at the opening of the concert with a version of his single Love'n'Tendresse or a cover of Urgence 911 in piano voice to close it. An appointment has been made for the artist's next Parisian date: December 6 at the AccorArena, the biggest date - for the moment - of his career.

For now, Eddy de Pretto thanks his audience at length for following him since 2016, when he posted his first song on YouTube, Fête de trop, which will become one of his hits. “Will you still be here when I’m 60?” he asks. And the public, with one voice, responded in the affirmative, certain that with Eddy de Pretto, the Festival will never be too much.
