Beleive it or not, this silver tongued old crooner from France is still going strong and filling venues, just like he did during his heyday in the '70s. Known variously as the French Frank Sinatra and Armenia's most famous expat, Charles Aznavour holds dual citizenship and is equally proud of his adopted nation as he is of his home land. People of a certain generation will remember his rousing tenor voice and heartfelt lyrics which had women swooning and couples falling in love, especially with the melodic yet romantic track She. Covered by artists as diverse as Elvis Costello and Badly Drawn Boy, this song has been a meal ticket for Aznavour ever since he first sang "The meaning of my life is she." After the release of smash hit Hollywood block buster Notting Hill (which featured this song prominently), his career has enjoyed a resurgence culminating in a sell out tour in 2014 which took in some of the largest concert halls in Europe.
Roll back the years with Charles Aznavour tickets
In a career spanning five decades, this crooner has been as active as anyone of his coevals, with the possible exception of Sasha Distel, although he died some time ago now. During such a prolific period, Charles Aznavour tickets have become increasingly hard to come by as his work load has reduced according to ageing and the inevitable toll this takes on a singer's voice. As well as French and English, Charles has also written and performed songs in six other languages, including his native Armenian, a notoriously difficult language where rhymes are hard to come by because the words are so long. These facts combined mean that his fame has endured across the generations and the vagaries of distance and time do not seem to have harmed his mass appeal with the public.
Get your hands on tickets while you can
It may be ghoulish to say so but nothing lasts forever, and even such a consummate pro as Charles Aznavour will have to retire eventually, so it is possible that his next tour may be his last. If you have listened to all of his recordings but never actually seen him on stage live, this may be your last opportunity and you'd be kicking yourself if you missed out. At StubHub, tickets are available for selected shows in advance so you and your close ones can relish the chance to hear the voice which has been described as defining the 20th century, he even edged out Bob Dylan and Elvis Presley as Time magazine's most influential musician of the century, although results may not reflect the zeitgeist.
