Johnny Hallyday will be buried this Monday, December 11, at the cemetery of Lorient, in the most strict intimacy. Close to sixty have accompanied this long journey from the metropolis.

After the impressive tribute popular on the Champs-Elysées, Saturday 9 December and the ceremony in the Church of the Madeleine, the remains of the idol of young people started a last long trip to the destination of Saint-Barthélemy where he should be buried in the cemetery of Lorient, in the most strict intimacy. An island to which the rocker had had a stroke of heart, and where he had built a beautiful house with his wife Laeticia, a place of happy memories as a family with their two girls, Joy and Jade. A choice that, however, generated controversy, some regretting that the singer would be buried far from those who love him and his fans.

Close to sixty has made the journey to the island of Saint-Barth to attend the ceremony to be held on Monday 11th December. Among them, the musicians Yarol Poupaud and Maxim Nucci, chef Jean-François Piège, Jean-Claude Darmon, his former producer Jean-Claude Camus and his manager Sebastien Farran. A long ride from the airport le Bourget with a stopover obligatory to Saint-Martin, the runway of the airport of St-Barthélémy being too short to allow the Boeing 757 to land. The intimate accompanying Johnny Hallyday, therefore, have been divided in several small planes. The first of them was raised to 15 hours on the island of Saint-Barth, with its edge Jade and Joy, their grandmother and Jean Reno, the godfather of Jade, followed closely by the plane carrying the body of Johnny and his wife Laeticia. The girls and their mother were then able to gather a few moments in front of the remains of the rocker.

Some relatives will, however, be absent from the ceremony to the image of Line Renaud or Sylvie Vartan, both too proven to the long hours of flight are necessary to get to Saint-Barth. David Hallyday and Laura Smet, the other two children of the singer were when two-made on the island by their own means.
