The Tehran Times Newspaper website published an article earlier today (http://www.tehrantimes.com/arts-and-culture/117401-art-news-in-brief
), claiming that Jean Michel Jarre had been invited to perform at the Kish Summer Festival, on Kish Island, Iran this Summer, according to a press conference held in Tehran, Iran today by Piruz Arjmand, the Director of the Music Office of the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance.
The article further claimed that Jean Michel Jarre was to reprise the music his father Maurice Jarre composed for "The Message", an oscar nominated 1977 movie about the birth of Islam, directed by Moustapha Akkad,
starring Anthony Quinn and Irene Papas.
Jean Michel Jarre's Management have just confirmed to JARRE UK this evening that this is "absolutely not happening".
JARRE UK would like to thank Aero Productions and Kanta Devi for this information.
