Tony Bennett – Legendary Crooner

Legendary crooner / singer Tony Bennett has anounced that he is retiring from all performances his longtime manager has announced. After over a 70 year career, Bennett will no longer be returning to the stage. Upcoming tour dates will be canceled. It appears that his retirement has come on his doctor’s orders. Tony Bennett just turned 95 on August 3rd. He revealed to AARP Magazine a few months ago that he was suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease for about the last four years. Bennett has earned 20 Grammy Awards and also a Lifetime Achievement Award. Still able to belt out his famous songs with his familiar calming voice, the challenging stage routine and tour schedules are too physically demanding according to his family.
