Our second trip to France this spring, but this time to the gorgeous Riviera in the south. VILLAGE PEOPLE were truly honored to be a part of another wonderful event, amfAR's 23rd Cinema Against AIDS Gala Dinner at the 69th annual Cannes Film Festival. amfAR is the American Foundation for AIDS Research, and its mission says it all: "Making AIDS history."

The gala was held at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes. The evening and auction was hosted by Kevin Spacey and VILLAGE PEOPLE and Katy Perry peformed. After making new friends on the red carpet--Hey, Kirsten (Dunst), Jersey in the house!!--we bumped into Dame Helen Mirren, who insisted on taking a picture.

From the City of Light to the Happiest Place on Earth. After our press trip to Paris, we hopped a plane back to the United States for three days of shows at Epcot/Walt Disney World.

Every year it is such a treat to perform at Epcot's Garden Rocks concert series during the International Flower and Garden Festival...this year was better than ever! We absolutely love Walt Disney World. #RespectTheMouse

We love Paris in the springtime...  So wonderful to be back in Paris, if only for 48 hours! VILLAGE PEOPLE made a quick trip to France to do some TV and radio, promoting the upcoming Discollection Tour (details to come).

Once again, we visited Patrick Sébastien and appeared on Les Années Bonheur, stopped into the RFM studios and sang live on the air, and we crammed into the back of a vintage VW bus to do an interview with Christophe Beaugrand of 50 Minutes Inside, as he drove the streets of Paris.

A very warm and Happy New Year!  First, we want to say thank you...2015 was one of the coolest years ever. We traveled over 185,000 miles, made countless new friends, performed everywhere, and loved every minute of it.  We are truly blessed.

Tonight, was our first gig of 2016 at the Egyptian Theatre in Park City, Utah and the best part? We're here for 4 more nights! Our 2016 dates will be updated soon, but a few highlights include another trip to the Disney World Garden Rocks Festival, the Lytham Festival in the U.K., and headlining a 6 week tour through France in Sep-Oct.

...from Finland to New Jersey.  Hurricane Joaquin is busy churning up rain and winds along the East Coast of the United States, but the weather in Hackensack cooperated, and the party went on as scheduled!  After traveling 170,000 miles, so far, this year, it's so awesome to play in our own backyard--Hackensack, NJ is right across the river from New York.  Thank you, Hackensack...see you again, soon.

Fun being in two places at once! Tonight we performed "live" in Finland, but we are also almost live on the E! Channel, performing Y.M.C.A. for the finale of Macy's Presents Fashion's Front Row at 8:00pm tonight (rebroadcast at 11:00am tomorrow, 9/24). What a great night it was taping the Macy's/E! show last week at Madison Square Garden and sharing the stage with Brad Goreski, Giuliana Rancic, Jason Derulo, and so many models that were waaay better dressed than we were!
