Neil Diamond Announces His retirement From Touring

In short, this is the off topic forum for all 'other' music which should not really involve The Beatles. However, we have separate forums for the sixties and seventies below so use them if necessary.

Neil Diamond Announces His retirement From Touring

On advice from his doctor, Neil Diamond has scrapped the rest of his 50th anniversary tour.
After being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, his tour is now over.
Neil was due to tour Australia and New Zealand but this will not go ahead now.
He says, “I have been so honoured to bring my shows to the public for the past 50 years. My sincerest apologies to everyone who purchased tickets and were planning to come to the upcoming shows."
Good luck then to Neil Diamond for an easier retirement but I am sure he will continue to record.

Neil Diamond is 77 so together with the news of his illness, maybe his decision was easy.
I hope Neil enjoys his retirement from the gigging scene.

Not really, he did do some good songs but as far as I am concerned, I don't have time for most of his recordings.
What a Beautiful noise was ok, I suppose.
I just never liked his voice.

To be honest, If I was a star and made a fortune I reckon I would retire a lot earlier than some.
Happy retirement Neil.
