Tony Bennett still had a lot to do this year – but there won’t be any more concerts. Doctors ordered it.
New York (AP) – After two sold-out appearances with pop diva Lady Gaga (35) in New York City, American singer Tony Bennett, who just turned 95, has canceled all other concerts scheduled for this year.
“There will be no more concerts,” said son and director Danny Bennett of “Variety” magazine. “It was a difficult decision for us because he is a capable artist. But the doctors ordered it. Earlier this year, the family announced that Bennett had Alzheimer’s disease.
Bennett will do “other things”, but not the concerts planned for this year. “It’s not about singing, it’s about traveling. He gets tired quickly. ”On Friday, Bennett’s website could no longer purchase tickets for concerts that were still posted there and the message“ Event Canceled ”appeared.
Bennett previously announced a second album with Lady Gaga. “Love For Sale” is due for release on October 1, after “Cheek To Cheek” became a worldwide hit in 2014. The multi-award-winning singer rose to fame with hits like “I Left My Heart in San Francisco”.
