4.0 out of 5 stars Redez-Vous "The Concert That Helped Heal Houston", 30 Mar 2012
This review is from: Rendez-Vous (Audio CD)
I was at the Rendez-Vous concert in Houston, and it was truly an amazing experience. Ron McNair, the astronaut was supposed to have joined Jarre on stage that night, and when it came time for the Sixth Rendez-Vous, Jean Michelle stopped and gave a really moving tribute to Ron McNair who had just recently lost his life in the Challenger disaster. With NASA being based there in Houston, there wasn't a dry eye in the crowd that literally stretched out for miles to see Jarre turn the entire Houston skyline into a giant canvas of light and sound. The entire concert was dedicated to the Ron McNair and the crew of the Challenger, and that night under a cloudy sky was the perfect eulogy to those brave astronauts who gave their lives to science and exploration.

The album itself is amazing, and it does capture the feelings and emotions of that night in Houston. I can't recommend it enough. If you ever get a chance to see the video of this concert, I have the original VHS sold here in the USA, you will begin to understand how much this concert played in the healing of a city rocked by the tragic loss of the brave men and women of the Challenger.
