Tony Bennett withdrew from the scene on the advice of doctors, his son revealed yesterday

Tony Bennett retired on the advice of doctors, his son revealed yesterday.

The singer, 95, revealed earlier this year that he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2016.

Despite the illness, Bennett performed two sold-out shows with Lady Gaga at Radio City Music Hall in New York City last week.

He then called off the remainder of his scheduled 2021 performances and his son Danny, who has been his manager for over 40 years, revealed that the curtain has now fallen on his stellar career.

“There won’t be any additional concerts,” he told Variety.

“It was a difficult decision for us to make because he is a capable artist. It is, however, the orders of the doctors. It’s not the vocals aspect… we don’t want him to fall on stage – something as simple as that. ‘

Bennett was born in New York City in 1926, the grandson of immigrants from the impoverished Italian province of Calabria. He has enjoyed a glorious career since his success in the 1950s.

He has won 18 Grammys and has sold over 50 million records thanks to songs including I Left My Heart In San Francisco.
