David Livingston/Getty ImagesDavid Cassidy is planning to slow his roll.

In a message posted on his website, the former Partridge Family star and teen idol says he’s winding down his career and plans to “work less and less,” citing the dual effects of travel and arthritis as the reasons behind his decision.

The 66-year-old singer, who lives in South Florida, says his February 18 and 19 concerts in Southern California “will be the last two shows that I ever do on the West Coast of the USA.”

Cassidy adds, “I’ve never loved playing live in concert as much as I have in the past few years. This for me has been almost like a drug! My audience reactions and phenomenal support have made it so sweet and gratifying. I could never repay the love and the reward I get from all my fans from around the world.”

The entertainer ends his message by saying, “This is not a complete ‘Good bye’ but I’m planning on working much less.”
