In 1985, André-Philippe Gagnon first acquired his international reputation with an incredible impersonation of every artist of the song We are the World, the famed song written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie and recorded by USA for Africa. Thanks to the success of his performance at the Just for Laughs festival, Gagnon was invited to present his version of We Are the World on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, reaching an audience of 15 million American viewers.

In 1988, while everyone’s attention was turned to Calgary‘s Olympic Winter Games, Gagnon was given the unique opportunity to perform at the opening ceremony. A real success, viewers were amazed all over the world and the Olympics added new dates in order to please the crowd!

In October 1999 began a long series of shows at the prestigious Casino Venetian in Las Vegas, Nevada. Soon after his arrival, Gaming Today, elected Gagnon “Best New Comer”. With a successful show every night, the impressionist performed on the Venetian’s stage 4 to 6 times a week until July 2001.

Gagnon went back on the road and presented his show throughout the U.S. and Canada, as well as in the Netherlands, however the Las Vegas public missed him and called for his return! Gagnon returned, and performed from September 2002 through the end of 2003, performing five nights a week at the Casino Paris. The artist was considered THE must see act in Las Vegas.

In 2004-2005, after overwhelming success in Las Vegas, the man of 400 voices pursued his tour with his International Show in the United States, Canada, the Caribbean and Europe. In addition, Gagnon began to work on his triumphant return to Quebec and prepared a new show André-Philippe Gagnon… de retour.

On tour in Quebec and French Canada from the beginning of 2006 through the end of 2008, the artist went back to his first public for which he has lined up the best segments of his international show and prepared many new imitations.

Full of new ideas, Gagnon has generated his most personal show ever, a combination of technology and creativity! Alongside to his famous saxophone solo which has always been and always will be part of his show, Gagnon added new instruments to his live performance! Audiences are amazed by his reproduction of Santana’s guitar solo on “Black Magic Woman” and by his rendition of both vocal and musical impression of Elton John’s “Your Song” where Gagnon even sits at the piano. A must see performance!
