After having the best-selling Francophone album of all time - D'eux, Dion released Live à Paris, which contains ten out of twelve songs from D'eux. The concert was recorded at Le Zénith in Paris in October 1995, during the D'eux Tour. The CD contains also few English songs, including studio recording of "To Love You More," which became a smash hit in Japan.

AllMusic said that the album "has more of a rock feel than any of Dion's other live or studio albums" and "Dion raises the roof and proves just as adept with harder material as she is with adult contemporary ballads." According to them "this good live album from one of the biggest stars of our time serves to showcase her not only as a balladeer, but as a first-rate rock star."[2]

Chart success

Following the successful D'eux, Live à Paris has sold 2 million copies in Europe alone, where it was certified 2x Platinum by the IFPI.[3]

After selling 669,500 copies in France and 280,000 copies in Canada,[4] it was certified 2x Platinum in both countries.[5][6] The album was also certified Platinum in Belgium[7] and Switzerland.[8] In non-Francophone countries, like the Netherlands and Poland, Live à Paris achieved Gold status.[9][10]

The album topped the charts for eight weeks in France, for four weeks in Belgium Wallonia and one week in Switzerland. In Belgium Flanders, it peaked at number 6, and in Canada at number 7. Live à Paris also charted in many non-Francophone countries, reaching number 9 in the Netherlands, number 24 in Austria, number 25 in New Zealand, number 46 in Italy, number 53 in the United Kingdom and number 63 in Germany. On the European Top 100 Albums, Live à Paris peaked at number 6.

On November 1, 1996, Dion wrote a new page in the record book of French music industry, becoming the very first artist to have three of her albums in the French top 20. That week, Live à Paris entered the chart on top position (her 3rd number 1 album in France this year), while Falling into You (seven months after it entered the chart) was still at the 6th position and D'eux was still at number 16 (a year and a half after its release).
