La Tournée des grands espaces (The wide spaces tour) is the fourth live album by Alain Bashung, issued in 2004 on Barclay Records. It documents the 2003-2004 tour which followed the album L'Imprudence.

Production[edit]

The scene of the Tournée des Grands Espaces tour was a metallic slope inclined towards the audience, Alain Bashung singing in the center, with the musicians surrounding him.

The tour was produced by Garance productions (Laurent Castanié), and directed by Vincent Boussard and Alain Poisson. The general direction was done by Jean-François Meinadier and the technical direction by François Lepaysan. Some european rock critics consider this to be one of the best live albums in the history of french music.
