Everyone remembers "Wicked Game". Author, composer, performer and actor, he signed a contract with Warner Brothers Records in 1984 and then released the album Silvertone. But it was first in France that the crooner knows the success thanks to a second eponymous album containing the title "Blue Hotel". This hit camped at the top of the French charts for a whole year. In 1989, he recorded the opus Heart Shaped World. The latter contains the singles "Wicked Game" which is a hit internationally and "Kings of the Highway".
A fan of Elvis and Roy Orbison, Chris Isaak draws inspiration from his idols by brilliantly playing the crooner, and excelling in rockabilly ballads. In the 1990s, the singer ceased to chain successes, from "San Francisco Days" to "Speak of the devil" via "Forever blue". He also appeared in soundtracks for films such as Stanley's Eyes Wide Shut Kubrick, or even in the series Friends. After the double tribute album Beyond the Sun, released in 2011, the artist released in November 2015 First Comes the Night fashioned in Nashville. He will open the Festival at the Opéra Garnier Monte-Carlo for this new 2023 edition.

For the singer, this is a "capricious and whimsical little record", but it is in truth thanks to this album that the whole world discovers a singular voice with totally new sounds. This opus quickly becomes a planetary phenomenon, far from the "pop standards" of the time.
Since then, Norah has sold more than 47 million albums, won 9 Grammy Awards and created many other solo works as well as group projects, and at the cinema in Wong Kar Wai's Blueberry Nights.

After a resounding comeback in 2022, the singer seems to have decided to go into overdrive this year since his biggest tour has been launched with more than 70 dates. The release of the album XXV in September 2022 marks the fact - remarkable and indisputable - that more than twenty-five years have passed since Robbie Williams left the boy band Take That to embark on a solo career that no one, not even him, could yet imagine. The XXV tour offers a fresh perspective and offers revisited versions or as Robbie might say, "reworked, re-imagined and re-loved" from his oldest song, "Angels," to his most recent, "Lost." On the album cover, Robbie sits naked. "It's Rodin: The Thinker," he says. "Except it's me: the thinker". He posed like this because, all higher concerns aside, this is the kind of thing he does when necessary: "I stood on a pedestal and I spent a few hours having my photograph taken". Unquestionably intriguing, his concert promises a thousand surprises on the occasion of the 74thGala of the Monegasque Red Cross, which will take place at the Salle des Etoiles.
