When we arrive in town is a song of the rock opera Starmania , written by Luc Plamondon and composed by Michel Berger in 1978 .

This is the first song sung of the album after the opening. It has been interpreted in the original version by Daniel Balavoine and Nanette Workman (who sings towards the last minutes of the song). Balavoine will take it back in 1981 during his stay at Olympia .

In 2010, the troupe of Mozart, the rock opera took over the song.
