glen campbell getty 2 Glen Campbell cancels tour due to health reasonsCountry music legend Glen Campbell, 76, has canceled his tour of Australia and New Zealand with Kenny Rogers that was supposed to kick off Aug. 10, reports the AP. He cites health reasons and a spokeswoman for Campbell says he is not up for “the very long flight it would require.”

Campbell revealed over a year ago that he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. This leg of his travel was to be the last international stop on his “Goodbye Tour.”

Rogers will continue with the month-long tour down under, with Australian country music artists filling in as special guests at the various venues.

Campbell is known for his classic hits like “Wichita Lineman” and “Rhinestone Cowboy.” He released his final album, “Ghost on the Canvas,” last August.
