At 70 years old, legendary performer and musician Elton John has announced his retirement from touring, but not before he embarks on one last 300-date world tour.
Earlier today via a youtube livestream Elton addressed his fans with his reasoning, “My priorities have changed in my life, we had children,” he continued. “I’ve had an amazing life, I’ve had an amazing career, and my life and priorities have changed. My priorities now are my children, my husband and my family.”
“That doesn’t mean I won’t still be creative,” he continued. “But I won’t travel anymore… I don’t want to go out with a whimper. I want to go out with a bang. It’ll be the most produced, fantastic show I’ve ever done.” (Source: Global News)
