The vocalist was slated to perform in New York, Maryland, Connecticut, Oklahoma, and Canada. She is renowned for classic pop standards as well as big band and jazz songs.

Bennett’s musical dates, which had been postponed owing to limitations on live performances as a consequence of the COVID-19 epidemic, have been canceled, signaling the end of his concert tour, according to a statement.

Bennett’s latest performances include a taped collaboration with Lady Gaga in New York’s Radio City Music Hall earlier this month. Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga: Cheek to Cheek Live! was released in 2014 by the duo.

Final Studio Album to Be Released This Fall

Bennett’s spokesperson said the singer’s second collaboration with Lady Gaga, Love for Sale, will be his last studio album, which will be released on Oct. 1.

Bennett, 95, and his family disclosed earlier this year in an AARP Magazine article that he has been suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease since 2016. Bennett’s wife, Susan Crow, said in the article that although he recognizes his family, he isn’t always aware of his surroundings.

Bennett’s career lasted 70 years and included the albums I Left My Heart in San Francisco, MTV Unplugged: Tony Bennett, Duets: An American Classic, and Duets II, all of which were released on Columbia Records. He has had over 30 songs on the charts, including “The Good Life” and “Body and Soul.”
