Sardou returns for one last tour
“I will say goodbye, and then the year after, I will start again, and then the year after, I will start again”, sang Daniel Balavoine. Michel Sardouhe had promised not to do it again. In May 2021, he declared to Parisian “I’m not saying goodbye to coming back three years later. When I say things, I do them”. And yet. The 75-year-old singer announces a new tour.
Entitled “I remember a goodbye”, this return to the stage will count around thirty dates, specifies RTL which announces the event. Icon of the end of alcoholic evenings – in particular with Connemara lakes, Michel Sardou had said goodbye to the microphone in 2017. The singer had then expressed his desire to end his career on the boards, in the theater. Nearly 4,500 spectators then came to La Seine Musicale in Boulogne-Billancourtin the Hauts-de-Seineto listen one last time to his hits live.
“I got tricked (…) by my wife”
Meanwhile, the star of song Frenchwoman – regularly criticized for her texts – wrote an autobiography I’m not dead… I’m sleeping! This time, Michel Sardou will begin this farewell tour (at least in theory) with a first concert at the Zénith de Rouen on October 3, 2023. He will then pass through Lille on October 17 and 18, Strasbourg on November 22, Nantes, November 14 and 15 and Toulouse November 28. Its last date is scheduled for Paris La Défense Arena on March 16, 2024.
Michel Sardou assures him, this last tour was not his idea but that of his wife. Anna-Marie Périer, his wife since 1999, would have pushed him to return to the stage. “I didn’t want to come back… But I got screwed over by my wife”, assures the singer who humorously accuses him of having “blackmailed” him. The ticket office for this final tour of the septuagenarian will open on November 14 after an interview at news from 20 hours of France 2 the day before. Something to delight nostalgics.
