The PATTON Concerts 2014
“Liberation, Reconciliation for every Generation”
70th Anniversary of D-Day - Normandy, June 2014
The weekend of June 6th 2014 may be the last time that a significant number of veterans who stormed the beaches in Normandy to liberate France and end World War II, will be able to be present. President Obama, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden, and many heads of state are expected to join the 14,000 People who will attend the event.
As a special contribution, Helen Patton, Granddaughter of General Patton, has been requested to make a statement of forgiveness and reconciliation by inaugurating "The PATTON Concerts".
She will perform on Utah Beach, with Thomas Blug, winner of The Fender Prize - Best
European Guitar Player Award, Thijs van Leer, knighted by The Queen of the
Netherlands for "special services to music", and Magène, Normandy’s own beloved
band plus special guests for an evening of songs and Rock and Roll music in
commemoration of D-Day.
Helen will also introduce a new young talent from Normandy especially selected to perform “Les Ricains”, written by Michel Sardou, which along with „The Longest Day“ has been the key anthem commemorating D-Day.
In addition to music from all eras that honour the soldiers, Ms. Patton will launch her
commemorative blockbuster anthem "The Greatest Generation“ (composed by
Darden Smith, Bob Farnsworth, and “Rabbi Mike” Shevack) which will simultaneously
be launched across American radio and television.
