LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Jazz legend Al Jarreau has canceled all of his upcoming dates and announced that he's retiring from touring.
Jarreau, 77, was hospitalized recently in Los Angeles suffering from exhaustion but announced last night that on doctor's orders, he was withdrawing from his upcoming scheduled performances.
"Al Jarreau is in the hospital in Los Angeles, due to exhaustion. He is receiving excellent medical care, responding to treatments, and improving slowly.
