More than five decades after his debut, legendary French rocker Johnny Hallyday remains a consummate showman, living up to his reputation as France's Elvis Presley with consistently bold performances around the world. Hallyday's love for the stage is all-encompassing – despite a 2009 farewell tour, he hasn't been able to resist his adoring fans, resurfacing intermittently for highly coveted concerts of his greatest hits. His 2012 appearances in New York and LA knocked fans' socks off, bringing anticipation for his 2014 tour dates to a fever pitch.
Born and raised in Paris, Johnny Hallyday became a European superstar in the '60s with his French-language recordings of Elvis-inspired rock and roll. Along with his signature croon and pompadour-topped good looks, beloved hits like "Let's Twist Again" and "Que Je T'aime" made Hallyday an overnight icon — a status that was only fueled by his outrageous live performances. Over a career that spans half a century, Hallyday has released 41 studio albums, embarked on more than 180 tours, and sold in excess of 100 million records, earning him an almost unrivaled position in French popular culture.
