It was the most anticipated moment of the first evening of concerts at the Art Sonic festival, in Briouze (Orne). Friday, July 22, 2022, Orelsan took possession of the main stage at 11:15 p.m.

If the evening finally ended on a good note, the start of the show was marred by interruptions. While the rapper who grew up in Alençon was attacking C’est du propre, one of the most danceable songs from his latest album Civilization, the lights suddenly came back on and the performance was suspended.

People crushed against the barriers

“It’s a mess, Briouze”, launched the singer to the public. “I see people who are compressed against the barriers,” he explained. Between the stage and the front row, security officers were busy evacuating people in difficulty so that they could escape and be taken care of by doctors.

After a ten-minute break, the concert resumed. Not without a warning from Orelsan who warned the public that the concert would be stopped if the incidents happened again.

By the way, the rapper left aside C’est duproper and left with Bébéboa, a calmer song.

A short-lived recovery

The warnings and the invitations to the crowd to discipline themselves remained in vain. About ten minutes after the resumption, the concert was again stopped.

Sorry. For those who cannot see, there is a human tide and people are being run over.

Orelsan

“There are chances that we only make sad songs,” he said a few moments before leaving the stage.

At midnight, the Orelsan returned to the stage never to leave it. The worries were now over and the public was finally going to be entitled to the long-awaited show for 1 hour in a much healthier atmosphere.

Remained the black point to erase and sing his famous title very popular with the Normans: It’s clean. Impossible given the conditions? Nay. The public, which had become calmer, was entitled to it to conclude an evening that had started badly, but which ended in an atmosphere that kept all its promises.
