European news channel euronews has signed up renowned composer and musician Jean-Michel Jarre to cover a series of events.

This is the first time ever that the channel has been involved into such an alliance. And it explains it is not weird at all, but even quite natural.

“euronews and Jean Michel Jarre gravitate in similar directions, using the strength of images projected on the international stage. They also share common roots in the city of Lyons where Jarre was born and where euronews was established in 1993,” the news channel wrote in a statement.

The station will now join the artist into his European and global tours in the coming years. It will also be covering the release of Jean Michel Jarre's albums, including the now available Essentials & Rarities.

“Jean Michel Jarre and the teams of euronews are exploring a whole range of collaborative projects on themes such as innovation in images, sound, the media and emerging technologies,” the channel added.

The first event will be a live, exclusive broadcast of Jean Michel Jarre’s concert for the wedding of Prince Albert II of Monaco and Charlene Wittstock on 1 July.

The show will be rebroadcast on a special edition of emblematic programme, No Comment Live and on all of its media platforms.
