At almost 80 years old, Jacques Dutronc is back! He agreed to take over the microphone and the road. The singer will begin a major tour with his son Thomas from April 12.
The duo is in full rehearsal
Before the public discovers the duo on stage, the pair prepares in a serious way. As Le Figaro explains, it was at the RiffX studio located at La Seine musicale in Boulogne, that the two artists put down their instruments and microphones for the rehearsals. Fans will be able to hear the patriarch’s flagship titles – Les Cactus, Et moi, et moi, et moi but also Gentleman Burglar – with new arrangements worked by his son: the latter will also sing his own titles in the setlist.
During rehearsals, Jacques doesn’t hesitate to say what he likes or dislikes, what he thinks is bad or what needs to be changed, even if it means not always being nice to Thomas. “I have the right to notice certain things, I am his dad, anyway,” he says.
Jacques Dutronc pushes a rant against his son
Indeed, while the show will have an acoustic sequence during which the spectators will be able to hear Gentleman BurglarJacques did not hide his rejection of his son’s choice! ” I thought we would only do a little piece of it, that one is swollen“, he says before saying annoyed: “The Daughter of Santa Clausit is necessary to air, not to chain all the couplets all the time, it is too much. I give you my opinion, then you do as you want. »
Another rant of the patriarch against the son: the choice to keep The Opportunist. ” I can’t take this song anymore says Jacques. But, the duo still has a few days to agree on the show to show!
