  • Why I don't think Elton will ever quit

John made the announcement at an event in NY in which he sat at a piano and performed "Tiny Dancer" and "I'm Still Standing".

He's the father of 7 and 5-year-old sons.

Sir Elton - who has sons Elijah, five, and Zachary, seven, via a surrogate - is set to make the announcement "imminently", according to the Daily Mirror newspaper. I had a wonderful tour with James Taylor, came back from Chile, felt bad on the plane, got home on a Tuesday night, was in intensive care on Thursday and stayed there for two days. "That doesn't mean I won't still be creative", the iconic singer said. However, he was clear that it wasn't the music he was exhausted of so much as the travel. "We had children and that changed our lives".

"I will want to stop touring - not playing, but touring".

John said the tour, which will span the globe and last three years, will be the "best production" he's ever done. "I'm not Cher, although I do like wearing her clothes." he added.

The singer said he had made the decision to dedicate more time to raising his children.


The last leg of John's final tour will be in the U.S. Talking about his Final Performance, he pronounces his love for the country.

In 1999, he was fitted with a pacemaker when doctors found an irregular heartbeat, while in 2013 the star cancelled a headline slot at London's Hyde Park after being diagnosed with appendicitis.

"It's not forever but I want to see my kids grow up".

"Obviously I work - but the work will get less and less and I'll spend more time with my children growing up".
