Electronic legend Jean-Michel Jarre returns to Houston

Electronic music legend Jean-Michel Jarre made history in Houston back in 1986 when he performed a one-off city-scale concert celebrating NASA's 25th Anniversary as more than 1.3 million gathered to share in a moving commemoration of the Challenger Mission setting numerous
Guinness World Records.

The "Godfather" of electronic music returns some 30 years later to make more magic this time at the Smart Financial Centre on Tuesday, April 10, at 8 p.m. Tickets to the all-ages North American "Electronica Tour" are $49-$150 and can be purchased online by clicking HERE or at the Smart Financial Centre box office (18111 Lexington Blvd, Sugar Land).

The Examiner spoke with Jarre about his montumental performance in 1986 and what now inspires the icon.
