Invited on the antenna of the program “Télématin”, on France 2, this Thursday, May 25, 2023, Florent Pagny, suffering from lung cancer, announced to start a summer tour of festivals at the end of June.
On January 25, 2022, the singer announced on his Facebook account that he was suffering from a “cancerous tumor in the lung, not very sympathetic, which cannot be operated on. »
” I’m pretty good “
“I’m pretty well, otherwise I wouldn’t be here,” the 61-year-old artist immediately told presenter Julia Vignali. Chemo is behind me, so as soon as the chemicals go away everything becomes more fun. “And to add:” I’m lucky, the protocol [NDLR. par immunothérapie] works great every time! »
Even if the interpreter of “Knowing how to love”, “Singing”, or even “If you want to try me” knows that “it’s undulatory, it’s going to last a long time” he indicated to resume “hair of the beast […] fingers crossed it’s going well. »
So much so that the singer has announced that he will return to the studios and the road to summer festivals.
