Tickets for Jarre concert sold out

With all tickets sold out, Jean Michel Jarre's forthcoming "Aero" concert in Denmark -- -arranged specifically to promote greater use of wind energy worldwide -- is set to be the biggest publicity extravaganza for wind power to date. More than 35,000 people will attend the event, taking place on September 7 at NEG Micon's wind farm in Gammel Vraa in northern Jutland in Denmark, and thousands more throughout Europe are expected to listen to it or watch it via live broadcasts on radio, television and the Internet. One hour highlights will also be repeated after the event. In one move, the message of wind power will reach its biggest ever audience.

"Aero presents a barrier-breaking, non-linguistic and highly artistic promotion on how wind energy can play a role in ensuring a sustainable development for the benefit of our community," says NEG Micon, one of the main sponsors of the event. Jarre's previous landmark concerts include performances from the Pyramids of Egypt, the Acropolis of Athens and Paris la Defense and attracted huge audiences around the world. Aero is set to do the same, with the wind farm's 15 NEG Micon 750 kW turbines forming the artistic backdrop.

Jarre, who has enjoyed world fame as a musician and composer for the past 25 years, is a long time environmentalist and active supporter of fellow countryman Jacques Cousteau, who dedicated his life to nature protection. Before his death, Cousteau spoke forcibly in favour of wind power on several occasions, a cause also taken up by Jarre. Of his forthcoming concert, Jarre says: "The wind is playing the lead part, not only as energy, but also as carrier of sounds, images, messages and dreams. The wind carries birds, pollen -- but also smoke and pollution, the wind brings us in contact with all the worst and all the best -- the choice is ours."
