I am sad to say the Neil Diamond has been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and has canceled the last leg of his 50th anniversary tour. The tour was set to extend to Australia and New Zealand in March. It was revealed on Neil Diamond's website that "the onset of the disease has made it difficult to travel and perform on a large scale basis." Tickets purchased will be refunded.
Diamond is turning 77 today and the recording industry will honor him with it's lifetime achievement award on the Grammy's the Sunday.
