Throwback to the day Michel Polnareff almost died. Victim of a pulmonary embolism, the singer almost died a few years ago.
Victim of a bilateral pulmonary embolism, Michel Polnareff had to cancel the last two concerts of his tour. His doctor at the time, Dr. Saliou, reassured us about his condition, despite the tragic nature of this medical problem:
Fortunately he was caught in time, because if he had played his two concerts scheduled for Friday and Saturday, he could have died on stage, added Dr. Saliou, who then detailed the singer’s state of weakness. The progression of the disease led to repeated drops in blood pressure.
A sudden cancellation of his concerts
Michel Polnareff suffered from sinusitis at the start of the week, which turned into bronchitis. He underwent infiltrations to be able to perform in Toulouse, Pau and Bordeaux (last week, editor’s note). But Friday morning, he suffered from severe dizziness and a drop in blood pressure, he said. And to add: If the treatment goes well, he will recover and sing again without sequelae.

A pulmonary embolism is the blockage of an artery in the lungs, most often by a blood clot. It is caused by phlebitis. A pulmonary embolism requires emergency treatment. Indeed, one in three victims of a pulmonary embolism dies of asphyxiation before consulting a doctor.
The singer of “Marilou” Michel Polnareff was therefore very lucky to survive this respiratory crisis. Placed on anti-coagulant treatment after this hospitalization in 2016, the doctors had still kept him under surveillance for several days, before he recovered completely.
Michel Polnareff forced to postpone his immersive experience, he explains the reason.
While his immersive experience called Polnarêves was to begin on May 5 at the Théâtre du Palais in Paris, Michel Polnareff announced that he was forced to postpone this grandiose project. On Twitter, the singer said the postponement was beyond his control.
It’s a blow for Michel Polnareff. After four years of absence, the singer was delighted with his return, having announced last January a mysterious project called Polnarêves.

The immersive experience is an extraordinary journey designed with Michel Polnareff.
His mythical and iconic songs lead the spectator into an experience towards the unexpected and an explosion of musical images, could we read in a press release sent by the Théâtre du Palace, where the experience was to take place from 5 may.
Michel Polnareff was eager to show his fans this half-exhibition, half-concert project, despite the fact that he suffered from the health crisis and the isolation imposed by the government. I didn’t suffer from the Covid, but I suffered from the lack of contact, like everyone else. I experienced it very, very badly. I don’t like people imposing things on me.
I miss my audience, I miss Paris. We are going to put color in a slightly gray world, he explained in the columns of Le Parisien. Then he adds: We are going to take our revenge on the freedoms that have been taken away from us under more or less understandable pretexts.

Postponement to June
Fans of the bespectacled singer will have to wait several more weeks before seeing him again, since the experience will begin on June 2. On Twitter, Michel Polnareff explained the reason for this last-minute postponement.
Due to problems with the delivery of certain broadcast equipment necessary to give you the most perfect experience possible, we have been forced to postpone Michel Polnareff’s immersive experience at the Palais until June 2, he wrote.
An experience that only Parisians or those who can go to the capital will be able to enjoy, since the 77-year-old singer responded to a user who regretted not being able to attend.
This immersion can only be experienced within the confines of the Palace in Paris, replied the artist.
Fans have only one thing left to do: be patient!
