French audience will soon be able to see the performance of The Alexandrov Russian Army Song and Dance Ensemble, TASS informs. The road tour is planned next month; it will coincide with 100th anniversary of the Great October Revolution.

The first concert will take place in Lyon. French National Guard Ensemble will perform together with the Russian Song and Dance Ensemble. Julien Dassin, the son of the renowned signer Joe Dassin will participate in the concert. He will sing his father’s songs that used to be very popular in the Soviet Union.

Julien Dassin is going on a tour to Russia, where he will perform with the Alexandrov ensemble. In fact, he is planning to launch a new album in tandem with the famous military choir.

Each concert of the The Alexandrov Ensemble will be opened by a commemoration ceremony in honor of 64 choir members who died in the plane crash.

It is worth mentioning that new Ensemble members’ casting finished at the end of January. Other road tours are arranged this spring: the Slovak and Czechs fans are waiting for the performers.
