Is Mylène Farmer willing to end her professional activities? Could “Never more” be her last tour? The singer wonders when the moment will come for her to retire.
After an absence since 2019, Mylène Farmer is making her grand return to her audience with her “Never more” tour, which started on Saturday, June 3, in Lille. She plans to perform until July 29 in several cities.
With a simple opening, elevated 4 meters above the ground in a platform surrounded by bird skeletons, the star offered her fans a show that is both impressive and less “lavish,” rather nostalgic, according to her own words.
Thus, the audience and experts can easily recognize in the sets, costumes, and choreographies numerous reminiscences of the past.
The French singer reinvents herself while reflecting on her past.
Could the title of her tour, “Never more,” mark the end of her professional activities? Could this tour mark the end of her music career?
Producer Thierry Suc declares on RTL: “We are never certain about the end, we discuss it frequently, she and I.” “At a given time, it is important to know when to stop, to determine the opportune moment… at a certain point, events come to an end with honor.
This concerns not only the profession but also life in general, our aspirations, what motivates us or not to get out of bed in the morning and continue.”
It is not new that Mylène Farmer’s retirement has been mentioned. When asked in 2020 about a possible retirement, she responded that only God knows.
The star also shares her feelings after each performance: “It reminds me of a sad dream that I often have. I find myself on stage, and there is no one in the audience. Since childhood, I have always had this deep fear of being abandoned.
The immense void that follows the concert reflects my own insignificance. It takes some time to regain a normal existence and return to everyday life.”
During an interview in 2020, she avoided answering the question about the end of her career, saying, “I have never given an answer to that question either. It is important to understand that I am unable to anticipate my desires to perform on stage.”
She also added, “I have always sought refuge in the art of writing. I presume that I will continue this activity as long as I am alive.”
