In her elegant Parisian home, Sylvie Vartan, surrounded by memories and personal items, has announced her decision to retire. This announcement, made during an interview for Le Parisien, marks the end of an exceptional six-decade career, filled with so many successes and emotions.
The most beautiful for going dancing is planning a series of farewell concerts, starting with three performances at the Dôme de Paris on November 8, 9, and 10, 2024. These shows symbolize a moving goodbye to her fans, and to a life marked by the constant stress of touring and performances.
Despite her desire to slow down, the 79-year-old artist does not rule out singing one last time abroad, especially in Japan, a country that has always brought her luck. "I don’t want to do one show too many," she explains, aware of the need to take care of herself.
The announcement of this retirement does not mean a complete abandonment of music. Sylvie insists: "I’m quitting the stage, but not singing." Her son, David Hallyday, also a singer, expressed his emotion at this news, recalling the many memories shared with his mother on stage.
This retirement not only marks the end of an era for her fans, but also a poignant moment for her family. The coming months will be emotionally charged for the artist and her audience, who are preparing to celebrate the career of one of the greatest voices in French song one last time.
