Jane Birkin – A Tribute to Gainsbourg, Savoy Theatre, 1994

Jane Birkin played her first UK concert at the Savoy Theatre in London on 25 September 1994.  Good timing for me as I had just moved to London then.  I was fortunate enough to get a ticket down near the front on the third row:

I remember reading at the time that although Jane was English she had not managed to get her singing career off the ground in the UK in any real sense (everyone knows Je t’aime…moi non plus but that’s about as far as it goes) and so had not yet been invited to play over here.  In the end she decided to organise a concert in the UK as a tribute to Serge Gainsbourg and to donate the proceeds to charity.  It was definitely a success – totally sold out – and, happily, Jane has not had to organise her own concerts in the UK since…
