My mom would like to see Charles Aznavour in concert, and I'm having trouble tracking down tickets and events. I found only one, festival.caproig.cat, are there other?

I thought that tracking down his schedule would be simple, but the official website hasn't been updated for a while, and vanilla googling gives me a bunch of shady looking ticket resellers.

Are there a couple of go-to places for tracking down upcoming artist performances that one ought to start with? I've heard of Ticketmaster in USA, but what about the rest of the world?

so it looks like EMI Canada is his current record company, but their artist page has no tour dates for him. The Cap Roig festival was the only thing I found as well. Perhaps you could contact EMI Canada directly and see if a human can help you?

Also, you might could contact his agent directly if you sign up for IMDBPro.

Unfortunately I'm unfamiliar with ticket sellers outside usa/canada (like ticketmaster & stubhub) so can't help in that regard. I checked ebay as well, since it's global and a good place to find tickets, but there weren't any just now.

hope you find something - I didn't even know he was an actual musician. I thought he was just an actor, and I just saw Shoot the Piano Player the other day. nice to know he's still working.

My mother would be aghast at the lack of fawning hereā€¦ Anyway, thanks for the EMI hint, I'll check with them.

He has a catalogue of over 1000 songs to his name if Wikipedia is to be believed, so there's plenty to savour from that bucket.

My go-to site is Pollstar...which is showing only a couple of upcoming dates in Spain right now. But that's where I usually go to track down this kind of info.

Ents24.com for the UK. Sign up and they email you before tickets go on sale.

He's Armenian and Armenians are obsessed with him - if it makes you feel better.
