LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — After Neil Diamond abruptly announced that he was retiring from touring earlier this week after he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, and canceled a string of upcoming shows in Australia and New Zealand, many of his fans there responded by donating their concert ticket refunds to charities that support Parkinson’s research and other charities.

Diamond and his wife acknowledged the virtue of his fans via Twitter, writing:

Diamond’s wife Katie elaborated, noting all of the messages of support she has received from Diamond’s fans.

The 77-year-old “Sweet Caroline” singer was in the midst of his 50th Anniversary tour and due to embark on the New Zealand and Oz tour segment in March, but pulled out of the shows, stating that the onset of Parkinson’s had made it difficult to “travel and perform on a large-scale basis”.
