In the small town of Viviers in the Ardèche where is buried the mother of Johnny Hallyday, a association has decided to hold Sunday, January 14, a concert to pay tribute to the rocker recently disappeared.

In the small town of Viviers located in the department of Ardeche, the political situation is somewhat tense, according to our colleagues from France Blue. A few weeks ago, the association France/Save our country reserved a room for 500 people for a day of work. The meeting held long, before the death of rocker Johnny Hallyday occurred on the 6th of December last.
To pay homage to him, the head of the association, Alain Barnier has therefore decided to add a small concert at this working day to pay tribute to the artist. The politician has approached a number of look-alikes of Johnny Hallyday to ensure the show. The association should collect the price of the inputs. According to Alain Barnier, excluded from the national Front and head of the association, the revenues were to be used subsequently to purchase tents to the HOMELESS of the region.
But the mayor of the city has not seen a very good eye the organization of this concert. He even refused to make available the means of communication of the city for what he considers ‘as a political event,” according to our colleagues from France Blue. Christian Lavis, who had himself decided to baptize their cultural center Johnny Hallyday, denounces the personal initiatives.
