oneperth.com.au can reveal the legendary electronic musician from France wants to throw a spectacular sound and light performance by the Perth city foreshore on November 17.
If approved by local regulators, ‘Rendez-Vous Perth’ would be free to the public except for 8000 privileged patrons holding gold, VIP and corporate tickets.
Jarre’s people have indicated a crowd of 80,000 would be likely.
The grassy park would be locked down for a month from October 26 to November 26, so massive stages and stands could be erected and dismantled.
To help concert-goers see Jarre, six giant screens would rise along the length of Langley Park.
City of Perth officials have recommended the concert be approved because it would give Western Australians a “rare opportunity to experience such a visually exciting free concert”.
A city committee will debate the bold bid on Tuesday night.
Jarre holds several world records for large outdoor concert audiences – the ultimate being when he played for an audience of 3.5 million people to celebrate the 850th birthday of Moscow.
