Daniel Guichard at Olympia: 70 years and still at the top of the bill!


All the best Mr. Guichard and the hat of the artist! It is in front of an audience, certainly a younger but more than ever a fan, that Daniel Guichard celebrated his 70th birthday, on Wednesday, November 21, at Olympia in Paris. An important room for the artist, because "everything has started here", he recalls. Olympia was his first major stage in 1972, and in this legendary hall he celebrated his 40-year career. And this Wednesday evening the star celebrates its 50th anniversary!

For over two and a half hours, the behemoth of the popular song, accompanied by a dozen musicians and helpful vocalists, offered the fans a rare and warm moment. And they did it well, starting just after arriving on the stage "Happy Birthday". "I love you," said Daniel Guichard, particularly efficient and talkative.

"I will sing only love songs"

In a happy atmosphere, between emotions and honesty, a popular singer seduced Olimpia as soon as he entered the stage with the "Indian". Publicly delighted and conquered in advance, he promises them: "I will sing to you songs of love." Daniel Guichard is very close to his audience and is very proud when he talks about his seven children. Among the four who work with him is Emmanuelle, chorister and Gabriel, the second musician from the family who comes to accompany his father on the piano on some of the songs.

Public opinion is 20 years old when it resumes in the first part of the "Tenderness" program. Thanks to the blue eyes and the sophisticated face of Charles Bronson, the scene has more than one charm.

A tribute to Charles Aznavour

We are happy to find Daniel Guichard's big mouth and fiercely attach to his freedom of sound and artistic independence. On his favorite topics: love, tenderness, passing away, nostalgia, injustice, he sang about thirty titles. His most famous songs of course and surprises are also a cover of "More blue than the blue of eyes" in tribute to Charles Aznavour. "He's here somewhere here. He was always there when I needed him," he said.

For "I'm not doing anything, I'm resting", the audience is rather smart so far, waking up. He takes the chorus in the choir, claps his hands and duck. The curtain falls, the end of the first part and during the break, the stars, then Gerard Lenormand and Michel Drucker came to applaud his boyfriend.

Emotions of "My old man"

It is with his huge success "Gypsy" Daniel Guichard begins the second part of his program. The audience reacts and begins to heat up in the room. Supporters who know the lyrics by heart, play them, and when you "like only you", the singer hands them his microphone, Olympia sings in unison. The artist does not hide his joy: "I like to hear you sing."

Even if he does not wear an old coat on this Wednesday night in Paris, but a very chic costume, when he starts to sing "Mon vieux", many of them have a tear in their eyes. Her unique and warm voice enchants the room, and 44 years later the emotions are unaffected. Daniel Guichard lost his father when he was 15 years old. At the end of the song, the audience gets up.

"We laughed, we cried, we even danced a bit on our chair, what a beautiful evening," Colette said to us, still moved, 58, she came with two "old friends". "And you saw how handsome a man is so charming," she added.

For 70 years Daniel Guichard offered a beautiful evening to the delight of his fans. Late in the evening, a huge cake appears on the stage. A satisfied artist begins to sing the "Party"!

Daniel Guichard performs at Olympia until November 25. It will be from January 2019. On the route after France and Belgium.
