This chronology is based on the work of many fans. The original Spanish version was created by Homer and which later was translated and continued by AlphaDevil in English, until early March 2010. RMJ has completed the missing events and dates for the early 2010, and everything after March 2010 till present day. Countless of other people have helped with corrections to dates, times and locations during the years, unfortunately it's impossible to name all of them. But they do deserve thanks also.
Another big change done by RMJ is converting the office document into real database. This offers in the future easy search function, sorting of events by different meanings, easy cross-referencing and countless of other amazing things that can be done dynamically. Eventually even video and photo database connection could be added, to complete the Alizée-experience.

) Which concluding what had been an exhausting tour. This concert is especially exciting, being the last one and unites many Alizée admirers from all around the globe, who had previously only been in contact via the forums. The concert is bittersweet, although not all the concerts were sold out (Homer feels this is due to the elevated number of concerts held in practically one country). It is necessary to honour the public (about 80,000) who did get to see Alizée and the fact that it was an exhausting tour in which time she only realised 2 singles.

23rd February 2004
The magazine “Voici” well known for its criticism of Alizée announces that Alizée married Jéremy on the 6th of November while they were in Las Vegas. The forums go into overdrive, with many fans gutted and announcing their abandonment of Alizée. The news of her marriage seem not to please almost anybody. This was due to two reasons. Firstly because of the chosen man and secondly in the way they did it, in Las Vegas. It appears there is a valid marriage certificate from the Las Vegas ceremony. This does not make it legal in France, since it must be confirmed legally in France and it is not known whether this has happened. Homer prescribes to the souveneir theory with regards to the marriage, believing that they did it as a joke and as a memory of their trip to Las Vegas.

9th April 2004
Due to the rumours that have arisen since the new year about discontent between Alizée and Universal and/or Myléne an official denial is published on the official website. Translated it states “For several months the press, have been relating and spreading rumours on Alizée. They have tried to make people think Alizée has undergone an “anticipated retirement” by the record label and their production. We want to state that these allegations are purely lies and that they are total deflection of the truth with the sole intention to harm Alizée is very well and there is no problem with the record label, with Myléne Farmer or L. Boutonnat, the producer. After four years of promotional work in France and oversees, Alizée wishes, as do all artists to dedicate some time to herself before starting work on a third album. Nothing is more legitimate and is a surprise to nobody. These deceptions have unfortunately been repeateded in supposedly more serious media, therefore reinforcing doubt that fans have about Alizée. These articles also attempted to discredit their relations with the producers. Neither Alizée, Myléne Farmer nor Laurent Boutonnat wished to make a denial in the concerned newspapers, which would have only fed the controversy. However we wanted to offer this statement to the fans of Alizée and they do not need to worry about her.”
