Glen Campbell has canceled his tour of Australia and New Zealand with Kenny Rogers next month for health reasons, reports the Washington Post. The Country Music Hall of Famer is battling Alzheimer’s disease and according to a spokeswoman for Glen, he is not up for “the very long flight that it would require.”

The tour dates were scheduled to be Glen’s last international stop on his Goodbye Tour. Kenny Rogers will continue the tour as planned, kicking off August 10 in Christchurch, New Zealand. Australian country artist will fill in as special guests.

Glen, known for his hits such as “Gentle On My Mind,” ‘’Wichita Lineman,” and “Rhinestone Cowboy,” received the Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Award earlier this year. He also made his final appearance at CMA Music Festival. Glen has shows scheduled cross the U.S. through October.
