eltonElton John has announced he is embarking on a farewell tour that will go through 2021.   Speaking with CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, John said that his children with his husband, David Furnish, have changed his priorities and he will no longer be touring. “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,” John said. “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 will be beginning a 300-date world tour to say goodbye starting in September. John said discussions about no longer touring began with his family in 2015. Earlier Wednesday, The Mirror reported that John, 70, would be announcing his retirement from music. The singer has been dogged by health issues in recent years. Most recently, he contracted a rare, deadly bacterial infection while touring South America in 2017. The illness landed him in intensive care and caused him to cancel his Las Vegas shows at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in April and May. The shows resumed in October.  All info on the tour is at EltonJohn.com.
