This pass is from the April 5th, 1986 Renez-vous concert in Houston (marked as such) honoring the Space Shuttle Challenger astronauts who perished. It was a record shattering light show that put lights on buildings all over Houston coordinated with playing by Jarre and other famous people including some astronauts. It shattered all past Guinness Book of Records concert attendances when an incredible 1.5 million people showed up!!!! This is a real piece of history. Incredibly, the old Guinness record was over 1 million people attending a similar event for Bastille Day in France in 1979 which was also an Jean Michel Jarre event. To top it all off, in 1990, he topped the record again by getting 2.5 million people to show up for his show celebrating the 200th anniversary of the French Revolution. But it didn't end there. The most mind boggling of all was the 3.5 million people that showed up for his concert celebrating the 850th birthday of Moscow!
