PARIS, May 5, 2007 (AFP) - Public celebrations will be held on the Place de la Concorde in central Paris if right-wing favourite Nicolas Sarkozy wins the presidential election Sunday, an aide to the candidate said Saturday.

French rock-star Johnny Hallyday and other show business supporters of Sarkozy will perform at what was described as a "great people's party".

The Place de la Concorde is a vast esplanade beside the river Seine at the end of the Champs-Elysees. It was famously the spot where King Louis XVI and hundreds of others were executed in the Revolution.
