Elton John will bring farewell tour to Philips Arena

Why I don't think Elton will ever quit

John's tour will pass through 300 cities and is expected to last three years.

The 70-year-old hitmaker, who has been touring for nearly 50 years, is to embark on a three-year farewell world tour as he bows out of live performing to spend more time with his children.

JOHN: (Singing) And I think it's going to be a long, long time till touchdown. "I just don't want to tour so much". "We're honoured to deepen our relationship by supporting the exclusive live stream and "behind the scenes" videos in VR for this special moment in pop music history". I want to go out with a bang...

The "Rocket Man" will perform in 300 shows across five continents over the next three years so that he can spend more time with husband David Furnish and his two sons, Elijah and Zachary.

Sporting a floral coattail jacket with sequined lapels, John promised an extravagant affair for the "Farewell Yellow Brick Road" tour which will open in Allentown, Pennsylvania, US.

"Last year I picked up an infection and I was very ill and it knocked me sideways", he said. "I'd rather be with my children than still be playing shows".




At the Grammy Awards, to be presented in NY on Sunday, John is to perform alongside Miley Cyrus and will collect the President's Merit Award. He said he would stay active, hoping to record more albums and write further musicals. I really want to spend time with my children at home.

As you'll remember, Elton John is no stranger to outlandish stage costumery.

But Sir Elton's fans need not worry.

Meanwhile, in 2013, he was forced to cancel a planned appearance at London's Hyde Park because he needed to undergo emergency appendicitis surgery. "It doesn't mean I'm not going to be creative any more".

"I get goosebumps about it", said Sir Elton. But Elton John says that's not the reason.
