Present on the stage of the AccorHotels Arena to pay tribute to Johnny Hallyday, Patrick Bruel did not really convince the viewers who were able to follow this concert on France 2 …
This Tuesday, September 14, 2021 was a day full of emotions for Johnny Hallyday fans. Indeed, surrounded by her daughters and her companion, Jalil Lespert, Laeticia Hallyday inaugurated an esplanade and a statue in tribute to the late rocker.
A few hours later, she went to l’AccorHotels Arena where several artists have followed one another on stage in order to resume the greatest tracks of the late singer. A concert that Johnny fans were able to discover on France 2. But if the emotion was palpable in the room, the viewers were more mixed…
Patrick Bruel severely criticized
Indeed, this tribute concert was very commented on Twitter. And the least we can say is that some Internet users have been disappointed. Patrick Bruel’s performance was notably very commented on the web. Came to interpret Live for the best alongside Florent Pagny and Patrick Fiori, the singer has not really convinced Johnny fans.
I have to say that Patrick Bruel got his lyrics wrong of the song, which did not escape viewers. A blunder that earned him to attract the wrath of the public. Others, on the other hand, put it down to emotion.

A disaster @PatrickBruel this song 😳 Sometimes it would be better to abstain… Fortunately, Patrick Fiori and Florent Pagny saved the day a bit… For a tribute… it was missed… ☹️

Patrick Bruel, what’s the worst? His wrong notes or the words he doesn’t know? 😂#JohnnyHallyday

A concert that did not convince
That Patrick Bruel is reassured, he is not the only artist to have taken for his rank. No, it is clear that the fans present in front of their screens were not impressed by this concert in tribute to their idol. Moreover, many are those who felt that the singers invited on stage were not up to Johnny Hallyday.
I would have liked Vartan, Lara Fabian, Eddy Mitchell, Céline Dion, JJGoldman, Dutronc,…
And here is slimane, Maé, louane,…
To be continued, Wejdene who will sing Light the fire…. #JohnnyHallyday

If not for most of the other artists it was difficult to repeat the songs they had to change? Because between Amir, Slimane, Louane, Bruel etc… They do not even respect the phrasing of the pieces. #JohnnyHallyday

Apart from Florent Pagny, Calogero, Catherine Ringer and Louis Bertignac… The other draws at the France 2 concert for Johnny…
