Al Jarreau Forced to Retire From Touring


If you're holding tickets for an Al Jarreau concert I have bad news for you...

A message posted on the jazz great's website reads,
Al Jarreau is in the hospital in Los Angeles, due to exhaustion. He is receiving excellent medical care, responding to treatments, and improving slowly. The medical team has instructed that he cannot perform any of his remaining 2017 concert dates. Therefore, with complete sorrow, Al Jarreau must retire from touring. He is thankful for his 50 years of traveling the world in ministry through music, and for everyone who shared this with him - his faithful audience, the dedicated musicians, and so many others who supported his effort. Ticket holders should contact their venue or point-of-purchase regarding refunds.

The man is 76 years old...Let him rest. A true talent, though. I don't what we're going to do when the old, actually talented stars are gone. I guess all we'll be left with autotune, stunts, and shiny costumes.
