new member here after finding your forum last week.
Thanks so much for mentioning a Paris concert next February. I would like to speak to the Olympia staff but everytime I phone the number on their website, there is a pre-recorded message in French and I don't understand what it says, or if there is an option of pressing a number to speak to a member of staff.
If anyone here should phone the Olympia and can understand the French message, is it possible to tell me what it says in English please?
I think I've booked a ticket and hope it all materialises!
bad news on DEMIS facebook side today!
My dearest Fans,
it is with a broken heart that I have to announce you that once more, I will not do the OLYMPIA HALL concert, on February 17th, 2012, In Paris.
Of course, as you well imagine, it is none of my fault. The french organisers decided that the concert could not be, concerning financial personal reasons which have nothing to do with the artist, as always. Looking forward to see you again on all my other worldwide concerts, to be annouced on my site (demisroussos.fr).
My dear friends and Demis' fans,
Ok, now you know the very bad news
Yesterday morning, I called to the Olympia and I spoke, during almost about one half, with a lady, very kind, who works on the Olympia and who gave me some explantations. Like us, she also was very disappointed because she had bought tickets to assist it and see and listen to Demis.
She says to me : according to the Olympia, nobody knows this news " the producer cancels the concert ".
Thus, she inquired about it, next to her boss, but nobody, in all the team of the Olympia, had knowledge. All the team were surprised because I had just announced them the bad news.
She also explained me that, for the moment, we have to wait for the order of cancellation of the concert by the producer and after, all tickets would be paid off, according to our method of payment, in 15 days after.
I asked her if the concert hall filled, she said to me that, for the moment, there were another 1200 places to sell on a total of 2032 places that the concert hall can contain, and only 832 tickets had been sold.
She also specified me, but without to be sure there, that, maybe the producer didn’t want to promise to continue the concert if all places were not sold because he would be obliged to pay taxes on the unsold tickets and for the concert hall (the booking of Olympia is very expansiv and taxes too).
I knew that the unsold places and the filling of the concert hall brought taxes to the producer, I don‘t know how much.
But how can one know if places aren’t going to be sold if we stop 7 months before the date of the concert ?
There are certain artists, here in France, little known or unknow, who put on sale their ticket in August for a concert in November, that is 4 months before date. Incomprehensible !!!! I believe, it’s similar in your countries !!!!!
Finally, we have to, thus, wait wisely to know about it a little more.
As soon as I know about it more, I say it to you.
I'm very disappointed, sorry, .... no word to tell you my despair.
But one thing is sure, I always follow Demis because I'm a big fan and I always love him
Hi dear Gigi!
I am sorry that the concert was deleted very much, according to me it was a mistake.
There is much time yet until 2012, the tickets would have run out certainly.
I hope that the producer changes his mind.
You are already no?
I adore it despite this Demis and I will like it always.
In my eye he a god, a king This songs caused very many joys, for which
Thank you to him, for me.
Yes dear Gigi it's very sad, yet still I can't understand why after all this days Demis' concert is still listed on the Olympia site also with possibility to book tickets - http://en.olympiahall.com/artiste/demis-roussos.html
So is the concert ok or not?
I have not heard from the venue about any cancellation or refund, so for now at least I'm assuming it is still on.
I'll be very disappointed & upset if it really is off, it just seem strange to me for them to cancel it when there are still a good few months to go yet.
