New Orleans singer Aaron Neville has decided to retire from touring.

Since the pandemic, Neville has been live streamed from his residence in New York.

His fans will not be so happy about this but, he can always be heard on the radio.

Neville announced his official retirement from touring in a post Tuesday on his official website.

Neville who is 80 years old is no longer interested in touring, stated that it’s tiring and no longer appealing to him.

“The time has come for me to stop ripping and running on the road,” Neville wrote on his website. “I waited for someone to invent a way to beam me from show to show but not much luck”.

He says life is short and he’d like to spend his remaining years being less hurried.
