Singing legend Tony Bennett has retired from the concert stage at the age of 95.
Bennettâ€™s son Danny Bennett, who hasÂ managed the singer for over 40 years, said on Friday that Bennettâ€™sÂ two recent performances with Lady Gaga at Radio City Music Hall will be the last of his 70-year career.
On Thursday, Danny Bennett canceled his dadâ€™s remaining tour dates.
â€œThere wonâ€™t be any additional concerts,â€ the younger Bennett told Variety. â€This was a hard decision for us to make, as he is a capable performer. This is, however, doctorsâ€™ orders.â€
The singerâ€™s son emphasized that the music talent is still there, but they donâ€™t want to risk an onstage fall or another tragedy:Â â€œWeâ€™re not worried about him beingÂ ableÂ to sing. We are worried, from a physical stand point â€¦ about human nature. Tonyâ€™s 95.â€
In February, Bennett announced that he had been diagnosed with Alzheimerâ€™s disease. According to AARP The Magazine, the singer rarely speaks and â€œwhen he does his words are halting; at times, he seems lost and bewildered.â€Â
But while Bennett wonâ€™t be singing on stage anymore, he does have one more thing to do in his career. On Oct. 1, he will release â€œLove For Sale,â€ his second duet album with Lady Gaga.
You can see them sing â€œI Get A Kick Out Of Youâ€ in the video below.
