The Twelve Dreams Of The Sun


Jean Michel Jarre had no particular plans for Millennium New Years Eve. But then came the tragic terrorist attacks at Luxor, where several Western tourists were killed. UNESCO, in a bid to support the State of Egypt, home to precious world cultural heritage, and most dependent on the tourist trade, asked Jarre to travel to Egypt as its Ambassador to draw media support for the Egyptian tourism industry. During his visit and discussions with the Egyptian government around the subject that something should be done to recreate a positive and modern image of the country Jarre was invited to conceive and perform a Millennium concert at the Pyramids of Gizeh.
