Former 1970s teen idol and The Partridge Family star David Cassidy reportedly stunned his fans with a train wreck concert performance on Saturday night.

While appearing at The Canyon Club in Agoura, California, which often plays host to retro acts, Cassidy appeared to slur his words, sing off key, ramble while telling stories to the audience, and forget song lyrics.

Fan videos from the event also showed Cassidy, 66, fall off the stage and hit himself in the face with a microphone.

Cassidy, who played the oldest of the five musical kids of widowed mom Shirley Jones on The Partridge Family, which ran from 1970 to 1974, recently announced his retirement.

The "I Think I Love You" singer said he was leaving show business by the end of this year—because of his arthritis.

The Canyon Club gig this weekend was scheduled to be his last on the west coast of the U.S.

Cassidy has been arrested for multiple DUIs.

As Radar has reported, he was also was charged on September 29, 2015 with one count of fleeing the scene of an accident by the State Attorney in Broward County, Florida.

The star has also suffered financial problems. In court documents last year filed in his bankruptcy case obtained by Radar, Cassidy claimed he was flat broke.
