Disappointment first. Then the worry. On Saturday, the doors of the Brest Arena remained closed to the 3,600 people who came to listen to Michel Sardou, on tour for I remember a farewell. The organizers' press release mentioned “medical reasons”, without further details. It is now proven that the 76-year-old singer tested positive for Covid. After Brest, Michel Sardou was forced to cancel two other concert dates. His label Universal announced it in a Facebook post taken up by the Zénith d'Auvergne website: the artist will “unfortunately (...) not be able to honor the shows on Tuesday 5 and Wednesday 6 December planned in Clermont-Ferrand” . For the moment, no postponement date has been set.
See you on December 8 in Geneva?
Launched on October 3, 2023, four years after the one which was to be his farewell tour and which brought together 450,000 spectators, the I remember a farewell tour has more than 60 dates in France, Belgium and Switzerland.
It must find its apotheosis at Paris La Défense Arena in March 2024. But the 76-year-old artist has already been forced to cancel some musical meetings with his fans during this latest tour. On October 6 and 7, two concerts in Le Mans and Angers were postponed to the end of February and the beginning of March 2024, due to angina. If the interpreter of Je va t'aime recovers quickly, his audience could find him on December 8 in Geneva for a concert whose date is still maintained.
