What memories do you have of Limoges?

“This is a great city! With an incredible media library. The modern architecture in the center pays homage to the old. For example, there is a Gallo-Roman fresco. I loved his winter garden. I told my wife that I wanted to rent a studio next door to spend a lot of time there, making films, comics and newspapers. I loved going to the Christmas carnival at Champ de Juillet with my daughter. There were several passionate showmen who brought their carousels to life in an incredible way. There have always been many children. I also remember central halls full of character and shops that have retained their old character. I loved the outskirts of Vienna. I walked, breathed, fished there. There was also a musical venue called La Fourmi* where we performed. And the Francophonie Festival! I saw many wonderful shows there. I also have great memories of meeting school children at the John Lennon Cultural Center. They asked a lot of interesting questions. They are adults now. I would like to find it. Why not during our concert? »

Signing for 1 hour 30 of the concert means 300 hours of work. »
