Jacques Dutronc is “in great shape”, according to his management

Thursday on RTL, Thomas Dutronc announced the end of his duo tour with his father. Their manager then hastened to reassure the fans about the state of health of Jacques Dutronc.

Jacques Dutronc, “in great shape”, had planned for a long time to stop the tour with his son at the end of December, the duo’s management said on Friday, after statements by Thomas leaving doubt about the state of his father.

“It stops because my father prefers to stop now (…). And then, he will be 80 years old (in April). He is worried about not holding up (…). We have the ‘impression, us, to stop in the middle of the tour’, said Thomas Dutronc on RTL on Thursdaythe day after a last concert of the “Dutronc & Dutronc” tour at Bercy (Accor Arena).

“What Jacques did not want and never validated, estimating at almost 80 years old, and still in great shape, to have fulfilled his mission by offering his audience with great happiness 38 concerts across France”, develops Vincent Carpentier. On certain concert ticket sales sites, such as Fnac, we can still see this Friday an extension of the tour with dates until February 5 with the mention “cancelled”.

A statement sent Thursday by the record company’s press service, titled “Jacques Dutronc paid for his last tour”, even speaks of “Jacques’ farewell to the stage”. “It was the last date (Wednesday) … Unless we change our minds in a few months! My father preferred not to pull too much on the rope and pay attention to his health”, nuanced Thomas Dutronc in remarks posted online Thursday evening on the Parisian site.

Surprise comebacks are commonplace in show biz, even at old ages. Michel Sardou, 75 years old today, had assured the Parisian that he was stopping the scene in 2021, before announcing in this same newspaper (and in other media) last November that he was going to go back there in 2023.
