Elton John has decided that his future lies off the yellow brick road of touring — at least in three years.
The megastar announced at a lavish press event at Gotham Hall in New York on Wednesday afternoon that following a three-year world tour that will launch in Pennsylvania in September, he will say goodbye to the road.“My priorities have changed in my life. We have children. I’ve had an amazing life, an amazing career, but my life has changed. My priorities now are my children and my husband and my family. I’ve been touring since I was 17 with various bands. I thought the time was right to say thank you to all of my fans around the world and to say goodbye. That doesn’t mean to say I’m not going to be creative, but I’m not going to travel anymore,” John said.
