the surprising reason why the singer returns to the stage, according to Dave

His last tour called Phénix Tour dated back to 2016-2017 and the release of an album soberly titled renaud. Since then, the singer, author of the favorite song of the French Mistral winner, had been discreet. His alcohol addiction problems seemed to have returned and, with them, the withdrawal cures keeping him away from his profession, which he started half a century ago. But at 70, the interpreter of Still standing has regained the hair of the beast! The reason was given on January 23, 2023 via BFM TVthrough his friend and colleague Dave. For the ex-husband of Romane Serda, the wheel would now turn in the right direction. Which would justify the artist hitting the road again to find his countless fans…

[Renaud] is very punctual. He settles down on his stool and the first words he says to us are ‘next’. He does it more for us than for himself. He considers himself ready.” If the singer unfortunately no longer has a voice capable of carrying his lyrics satisfactorily, there remains the emotion he continues to arouse and which is nourished by years of complicity with his audience and as many seasons in hell.
