Singer Dave, hospitalized on Tuesday after a heavy fall, “went out of intensive care on Friday” and “continues his recovery in hospital”, announced Sunday Marc-Olivier Fogiel, a close friend of the artist. “He wants to thank those who have been worried about him,” he added.
Concert dates canceled
Dave, 77, had to cancel all his engagements for the next few weeks because of this accident at his home.
The interpreter, known in particular for the hits “Du Côté de chez Swann” or “Vanina”, had several dates planned in February and March in the north of France.
In November 2019, for his 50-year career, Dave, born in the Netherlands but adopted by France in the 1970s, released a new studio album, produced by Renaud, his neighbor from Isle-sur-Sorgue.
“I am a singer of variety and proud of it”, confided Dave in 2019, attributing his popularity to his way of approaching life, with fun, wielding small spades on show biz and self-mockery.
“I have a very good tongue and I find it very easy to say swear words in French, not those of my native language! And if I am caustic, it is with a good heart! “, assured the one who also hosted many TV shows.
