Neil Diamond fans have donated the cost of their refunded tickets to Parkinson’s research, after the singer announced he would stop touring because of a diagnosis of the neurodegenerative disease.
Mr. Diamond, 77, announced Monday that his recent diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease has made travel and performing difficult and would curtail his 50th anniversary tour.
Ticket holders in Australia and New Zealand, the third leg of Mr. Diamond’s 50th anniversary tour, were given full refunds for the canceled performances.
“My heart is so full of joy to see this silver lining. Faith in humanity = restored. Thank you!” Mrs. Diamond tweeted.
