Elton John is finally hanging up the piano keys.
The beloved musician announced that his final tour, the "Farewell Yellow Brick Road" tour, will last three years and will mark the end of the singer/songwriter's career.
Sir Elton John has been touring since he was 17, but he says his priorities have changed.
"We had children and had changed our lives and in 2015 we sat down with their school schedule and we said I'm going to miss too much of this," John told CNN's Anderson Cooper in an exclusive interview. "I can't go on forever."
I’m overwhelmed by the enthusiastic response to my last ever tour. Unfortunately, so is my website! https://t.co/Obt7e4fi35 will be fully back online as soon as possible. Deeply sorry for any inconvenience caused. Ex #EltonFarewellTour pic.twitter.com/1zlQ2rKF5X— Elton John (@eltonofficial) January 24, 2018
Good on you Sir! Kids grow up fast, don't blink! Enjoy every moment.— Zelda Fitzgerald (@Florida71) January 24, 2018
John is the third most successful 'Billboard Hot 100' artist of all time for sales for music released between 1958 and 2015. He is only outranked by Madonna at #2, and The Beatles at #1.
