Elton John inspired the world with his incredible musical talents, and it's going to be a sad day everywhere when John performs his last song ever on the main stage.
Originally wanting to take a break in 2018, his final tour, "Farewell Yellow Brick Road", was put on pause due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. Now, he's resumed his tour dates for the last time.
Elton John says he's ready for family time
After performing for half a century, it's no wonder that Elton John is slowing down, and wants to focus on being a family man rather than a travelling band!
Speaking with CBS Mornings, John said that he wants to focus on his sons, Elijah, 9, and Zachary, 11, whom he shares with his husband, David Furnish.
"I want to be with my family," he said. "I've been touring since I was 17, in the back of a van. I’ve had the most incredible life. I've been so lucky and I've loved every single minute of it but I've had enough of applause."
"I'll be 76 years of age when I stop touring in 2023," he added.
John continued, "I want to do something different with the rest of my life, but we have to finish this tour. It's been postponed so many times. I want to finish it in the best way possible, in the most triumphant way possible."
John also shared that he didn't mind being at home during the pandemic.
"This house I’m in, in Windsor, I've been in since 1975," he said. "I've barely spent three or four weeks at a time here before I’m going somewhere else. I got to spend lockdown with David, my husband, and Zachary and Elijah, our sons, and it was just the best time possible. It was great."
