Rendez-vous is an album of instrumentalelectronic music composed and produced by Jean Michel Jarre, and released on Disques Dreyfus, licensed to Polydor, in 1986. It is his fifth overall studio album. It sold some three million copies worldwide and remains Jarre's longest-running chart album in both the U.S. and UK, with a 20 week run in the U.S. and an impressive 38 week run in the UK. The last track on the album was supposed to have the saxophone part recorded in outer space by astronaut Ron McNair, but on 28 January 1986, 73 seconds after lift-off, the shuttle disintegrated and the entire Space Shuttle Challenger crew were killed. In memory, this piece was dedicated to him. On the album the saxophone part is played by saxophonist Pierre Gossez.
The album reached #9 in the UK charts and #52 in the U.S. charts.
In April 1986, Jarre performed the large-scale outdoor concert Rendez-vous Houston in Houston, Texas, celebrating the 150th anniversary of the founding of Texas. The show attracted a then-world-record live audience of 1.3 million people. The concert was originally to have included a video projection of Ron McNair's performance, recorded in space.
