PARIS, Jan 14 (AFP) - French rocker Johnny Hallyday is planning a come-back concert for mid-2006 to mark his 63rd birthday after what will be a three-year break from live gigs.

"It was time to go back to the stage because in June 2006 it will be three years," he said Friday on France's RTL radio.

"I don't know if the public misses it, but anyway I do," he said.

His last tour was in summer 2003 and he said that his return "Flash-back" tour would start at the Palais des Sports in the French capital from June 2 until 30, 2006.

Hallyday, who is France's most enduring rock icon styling his long career on a kind of French Elvis Presley in leather, celebrated his 60th birthday during his last tour.

"We called the tour 'Flash-back', that means that I'll re-visit all the places that I did throughout my career," he told the radio, adding it would be very rock'n'roll.
