As of 9pm, and for nearly two hours, Jarre spread his magic with his signature giant LED 3D videos, architectural lighting and an impressive array of lasers, all perfectly synchronised to his energetic live performance on stage, where his instruments were powered by solar energy.
For the occasion, JMJ designed a bespoke kinetic laser installation over 12 buildings of the City’s new skyline, which was visible to the entire capital.Kicking off with a massive laser projection countdown on the buildings, Jarre captivated his audience from the very first note and had all generations cheering and clapping relentlessly throughout this truly singular evening for all present.It is reported that over 50000 people shared Jarre’s “Green Concert” live.
The concert was also broadcast live on television, by Saudi TV and El Ekhbaria for the all Middle-East.
