Where: Saint Etienne (Palais Des Spectacles) When: July 4, 2005 Written by: Jean-Pierre Haemmerli
I talked to
Jerry when he arrived at the venue. He was looking great and was in a good mood. We shook hands and exchanged a few words : his handshaking was indeed as strong as
usual. So everything looked good for the show.
It started at 21.13.
Ken : Baby, What You Want Me To Do BB : Bye Bye Johnny Robert : Honey Donâ€™t
Buck : Old Time Rock And Roll
I was sitting on the front row with two friends ( thanks to Pam Haymen) who took care of these seats for us. The sound was
great: really the best I ever heard in years.

At 21.28 Jerry arrived on stage:
1) Roll over Beethoven 2) No Headstone On My Grave
3) You Win Again 4) Boogie Woogie Country Man (with a great piano intro) 5) Georgia On My Mind 6) Whole Lotta Shakinâ€™ Goinâ€™ On
21.45. Jerry stands up, walks towards Kenny. Phoebe arrives quickly, takes her father by the arm.
Ken announces that it is only a break, that Jerry will come back. The band keeps on playing:
BB: Sick And Tired (appropriate song ?)
Ken : Slippin' And Slidin'
I guess itâ€™s at that moment that Patrick Rocher with an hesitating voice announced: Jerry Lee is feeling bad (had an indisposition)
and he is not coming back. The band plays on:
Robert: Lonely Weekends Ken: Columbus Stockade Blues Buck : Big Boss Man The band : instrumental outro.
