Not so easy to organize “La vie d’artiste”. While he was delighted to defend the songs from his fifth studio album, certified platinum for more than 100,000 copies, on the biggest stages in France, Christophe Ma had to be patient. The singer was only able to honor a handful of concerts before the country was sealed off by the government, during the outbreak of the Covid-19 epidemic in March 2020. We got off the stage and learned about confinement by turning on the television. Even if we suspected it, it was a sledgehammer. We didn’t think it would be that fast. We then all said “goodbye” by meeting two months later to play in summer festivals. And has taken on unimaginable proportions. It was a lot of frustration he said then, despite seeing the show on which he had worked for a year and a half with his team not being able to come to life.

Obviously, the ups and downs of the health crisis have paralyzed the entire cultural industry, forced to adapt to the evolutions of the pandemic. Also, Christophe Ma has therefore postponed his tour no less than twice, which fortunately ended up resuming on September 15 in Nice. The musician, who filled the Accor Arena Paris this week, will perform his songs “Casting” and the recent “Y’a du soleil” until November. But the rest is already written! On his social networks, Christophe Ma announces that he will be back on the roads in March for a somewhat special series of concerts, the 15th anniversary of his very first album.

At the time, more than 1.5 million copies of the disc had been torn off thanks to the singles “hurt” or “Belle demoiselle”, and Christophe Ma was everywhere, on radio and television. Five NRJ Music Awards will come to crown this fruitful re that the artist remembers with a lot of nostalgia 15 years later.
