Sir Elton John has been performing and globetrotting for over half a decade, but recently he announced he was hanging up the glitter glasses and retiring for touring… But FANS don’t FRET, you can still catch Elton in a city near you for some time to come his FAREWELL to the stage is going to be EPIC! … get the DETAILS after the JUMP!!
“I’m not gonna be touring anymore,” he said, aside from his last tour ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ that will kick off later this year in September. To be fair, he added that this global farewell tour will last a few years and will be 300 shows.
“My priorities have changed,” he cited, adding that he wants to focus on family, his children and his husband, David Furnish. “In 2015, David and I sat down with a school schedule … I don’t want to miss too much of this.”
He added about his children, Elijah, 5, and Zachary, 7, “I love them so much, I don’t want to miss them and I don’t want them to miss me.” John added that he’ll take a few years off after this tour, but will still be writing and being creative.
John, who has sold over 200 million albums, has five Grammy wins, a Tony Award and an Oscar win for “Can You Feel the Love Tonight.” He has been performing since the early 1960s and had a lucrative Las Vegas residency for the past six years.
BUT DON’T CRY, this FAREWELL TOUR is going to be HUGE and you will get a chance to see the ‘PIANO MAN’ before his final curtain call!
