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.

The date on pre-order page is changed to 23rd of January 2013. But it will most likely change one more time because the date is the same as the beginning of Les Enfoirés concerts.
