Elton John The Sun's Goin' Down On Me ... Announces Farewell Tour

Elton John The Sun's Goin' Down On Me ... Announces Farewell Tour

His husband David Furnish said in an interview a year ago that John would never stop performing, even if this is his final world tour.

The news comes less than a year after the musician was forced to cancel on a number of gigs when he contracted a bacterial infection.

According to The Mirror, an announcement from Sir Elton is due "imminently".

"Ten years ago, if you'd have said I'm going to stop touring, I would have said, 'No, no".

He has won five Grammys, a Tony and an Oscar for his music, and has delivered more than 4,000 performances in 80 countries since launching his first tour in 1970.

Not a bad little retirement fund, eh? "I need to dedicate more time to raising my children". "I plan to bring the passion and creativity that has entertained my fans for decades to my final tour".

"I will be creative, hopefully, until the day I die", he said.

Elton John announced he will perform his final tour, which will include 300 concerts. I only saw her last Monday and I am in shock. Besides, he said, "I've had a good run".

The tour includes three stops at New York's famed Madison Square Garden this year: October 18-19 and November 8. I will miss you so much.

In March 2017 he spent two night in intensive care after picking up a "potentially deadly" bug during his tour in South America.

He ended up in intensive care for several days and almost two weeks in the hospital.

Even still, he managed to perform 96 concerts past year and downplayed any concerns that he's retiring due to medical problems.

He also sang Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me with Wham! stars George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley. Following his return to home, he had to cancel the May and April dates in his Las Vegas residency.

Following his illness a year ago a statement was released saying: "We regret to inform you that due to medical reasons, Elton John is forced to cancel his entire performance schedule for the upcoming April/May run of "The Million Dollar Piano" at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace".
