Neil Diamond has cancelled his 2018 Australian / New zealand tour
23 January 2018
Singer-songwriter Neil Diamond has cancelled his 2018 Australian/New zealand tour and has retired from touring altogether, after recently being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
A statement released by Diamond’s management reads:
“The onset of the disease has made it difficult to travel and perform on a large scale basis but will allow Mr. Diamond to continue his writing, recording and development of new projects. Based on his doctors’ advice, the third leg of Diamond’s 50th Anniversary tour, set to land in Australia and New Zealand this March, has been cancelled.”
Mission Concert Management only heard the news 2 hours ago so we haven't had time to consider the options. We need 48 hours to see what we can do about the 2018 event on 17th March. Please be patient, we will be back to you ASAP with the news on how we are to proceed. A full refund will be issued if our 17 March Concert is cancelled or if a replacement Artist is secured and the patron does not wish to attend.
