5 Time Grammy winner Christopher Cross, best known for hits including
Arthur's Theme, Sailing and Ride Like The Wind
releases A Night in Paris - his first live 2CD and DVD set on 8th April
A Night in Paris was recorded on the European leg of Christopher's tour in April 2012,
at the Theatre Le Trianon in Paris and features all his hits as well as some material
From his current album Doctor Love. Over the years Cross has collaborated with musicians including
The Beach Boys, The Doobie Brothers and The Eagles and has sold over 20 million albums
After the release of the studio album “Doctor Faith“, Christopher Cross started one of his biggest tours in Europe in the last 15 years. “A Night In Paris” is the first live 2CD/DVD by Christopher Cross, which was filmed at the notorious Theatre Le Trianon in Paris, France in April 2012. It will be released on April 8th, 2013 via earMUSIC.
While the previous tours showed a more acoustic (at times even jazzy) approach, Cross decided that for the ‘Doctor Faith’ tour he would go back to his musical roots and expanded his band to include a more classical “rock line-up“: Andy Suzuki (keyboards, sax), Dave Beyer (drums), Chazz Frichtel (bass, vocals), Kiki Ebsen (keyboards, vocals), Richie Gajate Garcia (percussion) and famous sound engineer Ross Pallone (Michael Jackson, Alice Cooper, Elton John...)
The 90 minutes show is impeccable, the new material is fused beautifully with all the songs the audience is expecting. The wonderful theatre gives the concert a magical atmosphere. Songs like ‘Sailing’, ‘Ride Like The Wind’ and ‘Arthur’s Theme’, sound simply perfect placed beside the most recent songs like ‘Leave It To Me’ and ‘November’.
