Mylènium Tour is the third live album by Mylène Farmer, released on December 5, 2000.

Background[edit]

After having ending her third successful tour whose last shows were held in Russia on March 7, 2000, Farmer rested, and then decided to release an album and a DVD retracing her concert. With Bertrand Châtenet, she participated in the audio mixing of the live album and also worked on the bonus available on the DVD.[1] The album, whose release was originally scheduled for September, was finally marketed on December 4, after several postponements, since its preparation needed a lot of time. The day before, the Fnac and Virgin stores of the Champs-Elysées organized a special evening by opening at midnight to allow fans to purchase the various supports of the album and the only single "Dessine-moi un mouton" which was released at the same time.[2]

The album privileges the songs from the previous studio album Innamoramento, but also contains some songs from Anamorphosée and L'Autre..., and two B-sides. A medley composed of 1980s four hits of the first two albums is also available on the album.[3]

Arranged by Yvan Cassar and produced by François Hanss, Mylenium Tour is the only album, which was not produced by Laurent Boutonnat.

Chart performances[edit]

In France, the CD went straight to number one on French Albums Chart, on December 9, 2000. It was dethroned the week after, but managed to stay on the top ten for 11 weeks. It disappeared from the chart (Top 200) on September 8, 2001, after its 31st week of attendance.[4] On September 26, 2001, the album was certified Double platinum album for a minimum of 600,000 sales.[5] It peaked respectively at #17 (it was released only three weeks before the end of the year) and #39 on 2000 and 2001 French Albums Charts.[6][7] Although it was a little less sold than Live à Bercy released three years before, Mylenium Tour remains one of the best-selling live albums in France.
The VHS and the DVD, also released in December 2000, were both certified Diamond videos for more than 100,000 copies sold (350,000 sales).[8]

In Belgium (Wallonia), the album entered the chart on December 16, 2000, at #14. It reached then #8, its highest position, but immediately left the top ten and remained on the chart (Top 50) for 13 weeks. It was ranked #68 on 2000 End of the Year Chart.[9] On the chart edition of April 30, 2005, the album re-appeared for a single week, at #50, thanks to the release of Avant que l'ombre....[10]

In Switzerland, the album achieved a minor success: it peaked at #31, on December 17, 2000, then kept on dropping and remained for seven weeks in the top 50 and for 12 weeks in the top 100.[11]
