Arlo Guthrie is hanging up his touring hat.
In a message on his website on Friday (Oct. 23) titled "Gone Fishing," the folk singer revealed that after 50 years, "touring and stage shows are no longer possible."
He explained that he has experienced a number of mini-strokes, the first in 2016. “I got really dizzy in the parking lot of the hotel, and started seeing as though I were looking through a kaleidoscope,” he said, before sharing that he didn't find out it was a mini-stoke until a few weeks later. "It didn’t appear to affect my performance, or my state of being. I continued touring for the next 4 years.”
