Neil Diamond Retires From Touring Due to Parkinson’s Disease

Neil Diamond Announces Retirement From Touring Following Parkinson's Disease Diagnosis

Neil Diamond is saying goodbye to the stage. On Monday, the 76-year-old singer, who is best known for hits like "Sweet Caroline" and "Cracklin' Rosie," announced that he is retiring from touring due to his recent diagnosis of Parkinson's disease. "It is with great reluctance and disappointment that I announce my retirement from concert touring," he said in a statement on his website. "I have been so honored 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." Diamond was previously scheduled to travel to Australia and New Zealand for the third leg of his 50th anniversary tour in March but has since canceled the dates per his doctor's orders.

While the statement explained the "onset of the disease has made it difficult [for him] to travel and perform on a large-scale basis," the singer added that he will continue his writing, recording, and development of new projects. "I plan to remain active in writing, recording and other projects for a long time to come," he said. "My thanks goes out to my loyal and devoted audiences around the world. You will always have my appreciation for your support and encouragement. This ride has been 'so good, so good, so good' thanks to you." Diamond is set to be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award during the Grammy Awards on Sunday.
