David Cassidy performs final show after dementia diagnosis
David Cassidy performed his final concert of his final tour at BB King Blue Club & Grill in New York on Saturday.
He has recently been diagnosed with dementia at just 66 years old and he chose to finish where he began in New York.
Cassidy shared a message on his website before his last show writing: “I’m overwhelmed with the loving, caring, supportive reaction to the fact I have the early stages of dementia. I want every single person who will ever read this, or hear this, to know that their love and care for me, and concern for me, means everything in the world.”
“I’ve chosen for 2017 to finish where I began, and where I was born, in the city of Manhattan, in New York, at BB Kings in just more than a few days. I intend to put the touring aspect of my life to rest,” he continued.
I’m one of the more fortunate human beings, let alone actors, songwriters, singers, musicians, producers, creators in that I’ve had a lifetime of living my dreams.
"Without you all I would have very little. I am now a very, very, very heart-full rich man."
He also told fans he would not disappear.
