Great show even tough the beginning was really slow (great version of the Beatles' "We can work it out").
Like last time there was a duet with Fred Yonnet (click for video)
Once again tickets were really expensive & the security was a pain in the ass.
Bercy was packed, lively atmosphere.
No intermission, more than 2 hours of concert.
When Stevie Wonder started playing Hit after Hit , everybody was dancing & cheering.
No need to tell you that we he called Prince on the stage it was madness, it seamed unrehearsed as there was a gap between the moment he called him and the moment Prince showed up ( it's not on the video), as you can see on the video they're having a talk behind Stevie to know what to do.
They are rumours that Prince is looking for a place to do a gig in Paris mid-July as there were rumours the afternoon of the show that Prince might turn up tonight.
