My retirement from touring not a publicity stunt says Elton John

Vastavam web: Elton John is serious about retirement from touring as the veteran musician said he has had “enough” of it.The 71-year-old musician, who announced his decision to hang his boots from touring after almost 50 years in the music scene in January, emphasised that it is not a marketing gimmick to promote his upcoming Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour.

“I’m looking forward to saying goodbye and it’s not a publicity stunt because I really am saying goodbye. I’ve had enough,” John said in an appearance on “Good Morning Britain”.”They’re so funny they’re great kids, they keep us amused, that’s why I’m coming off the road after this world tour. I need to be there for them and I need to spend that time with them. I miss them so much when I’m not with them,” he said.Though John is retiring from touring, he said he is not giving up on music altogether.
