Legendary French singer Charles Aznavour, considered to be one of the greatest singer songwriters of all times, will be appearing for one night only at the ATLAS ARENA – LODZ on May 7th, 2014, his first live concert in Poland for nearly 20 years.

In a career spanning over 70 years, over 100 million record sales, 1200 songs, 80 movies, 294 albums, thousands of concerts around the world, Charles Aznavour performs and has recorded in 7 languages, and at 89 years old (90 in May 2014), is the longest standing “A list” star in the world, still filling major venues all over the world. Besides numerous prizes and awards, in 1986 he was inducted into the American Songwriters hall of Fame; and in 1998 Charles was named “Entertainer of the Century” by CNN/Time Online, edging out Elvis Presley and Bob Dylan. Since 2009, he has been the Armenian Ambassador to Switzerland, and is a permanent delegate to the United Nations in Geneva. In the English speaking world, he has enjoyed major success with “SHE”, which went to number one in the UK, and also featured in the blockbuster film “Notting Hill”, and he has had further hits with “The Old Fashioned Way” and “Yesterday When I Was Young”. Charles Aznavour’s songs have been recorded by many, many artists including Elton John, Edith Piaf, Celine Dion, Fred Astaire, Sting, Ray Charles, Bing Crosby, Tom Jones, Shirley Bassey, Laura Pausini, Placido Domingo, Sammy Davis Jr, Julio Iglesias, Nina Simone, Liza Minelli, Petula Clark, Andrea Boccelli, Josh Groban, Paul Anka, Serge Gainsbourg, Engelbert Humperdink, Elvis Costello, Bryan Ferry, Andy Williams, Dusty Springfield, Marc Almond to name but a few. Besides being a singer, songwriter and actor, a public activist and a diplomat, Charles founded the charity “Aznavour for Armenia” and has so far raised many millions of dollars for this cause.

“SHE” over 175 Covers “THE OLD FASHIONED WAY” over 300 Covers “YESTERDAY WHEN I WAS YOUNG” over 250 Covers And many more such as “LA MAMMA”, “QUE C’EST TRISTE VENISE” and “LA BOHEME” with over 100 covers each. In the 1950’s, his song “APRÈS L’AMOUR” was banned for being too explicit about “post-coital bliss”! In 1972 he wrote “WHAT MAKES A MAN” about homosexuality. Many thought it would end his career, but instead the song became a cult gay anthem, and was recorded by numerous artists including Marc Almond, and has been one of the highlights of Liza Minelli’s show for the last ten years!!
