PARIS, 24 May 1966, L'Olympia
Co-founded in 1888, by Joseph Oller and Charles Zidler, the co-creators of the Moulin Rouge, The Olympia is the oldest music hall in Paris, located boulevard des Capucines. Its capacity is 2000 seats.
The famous Paris '66 concert! The event was supposed to have been recorded by the French radio Europe N°1 for its program "Musicorama", but there never was any broadcast... In 2016, 50 years later, the recording was finally released as part of the 36 CDs box set BOB DYLAN 1966 THE LIVE RECORDINGS.

This is an invitation to the event. Musicorama was the name of a musical entertainment organised by the French radio Europe 1. Usually the shows were recorded and a broadcast followed... but not this time...
