Live Nation is the promotion of a 23-date tour across France this summer, in collaboration with the public investment bank BPIfrance, as the live tour returns to the country for the first time since the month of March.The Great Tour, which have a range of domestic acts, including the already confirmed artists Patrice and Gaumar, began on the 29th of July, in the Vieux-Bocau on the south-west coast of France, before travelling to the north of the country to the Atlantic seaboard.

Five dates are planned in the south-east of the country at the end of the month of August, before finishing with two shows in Paris on 18 and 19 September.

Although festivals and other major events of more than 5 000 people remain banned in the country until September, entertainment venues were allowed to reopen earlier this month in the great majority of countries, with the mandatory use of face coverings.
