New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
95-year-old Tony Bennett
has officially announced his retirement after a 70-year career according to reports.
Bennett, Bennett's son and manager for more than 40 years, canceled the iconic singer's remaining tour dates, stating that Bennett's two recent dates with Lady Gaga
at New York's Radio
Hall would be his last.
This comes after Bennett revealed earlier this year that he was diagnosed with dementia in 2016.
said that the retirement is due to doctor's orders, despite his father still being capable of performing. This is simply a precaution to ensure that Bennett does not suffer any falls or other mishaps on stage.
Bennett will release his second duet album with Lady Gaga, Love For Sale, on October 1.
