You have the money, Sir Elton, but you can't buy the time

In March past year, Sir Elton revealed he planned to make a decision about his touring future in "the next six months".

John and Furnish married in 2014 and the couple are raising two sons, Zachary, 7, and Elijah, 5, who were born through a surrogate mother.

"It's going to be the most produced, best production I've ever done", he stressed. "If I stop and say enough, what the f-- am I going to do?" "But I won't travel any more ... We had children and that changed our lives". "I don't want to miss them and I don't want them to miss me".

Last year, he was forced to cancel nine shows in Las Vegas and California because of a bacterial infection he contracted during a South American tour. The "Farewell Yellow Brick Road" tour will kick off in September and run for three years across five continents and 300 shows. "I'm not Cher", he said, a reference to Cher's comebacks.

"Performing live fuels me and I'm ecstatic and humbled to continue to play to audiences across the globe", John said in a press release. But I love them so much. "I will be making more records, writing more musicals, doing more exhibitions with our photography", he explained, "but mostly I'll be taking my kid to soccer academy, which is the most important thing".

"It is the last time that I will be touring and travelling the world because my priorities have changed in my life", he said.

British music star Sir Elton John is reportedly set to retire from touring.

When Elton John sang Someone Saved My Life Tonight back in the 1970s, little did he know that a few decades later, someone would LITERALLY have to save his life.

But when CNN asked about the #MeToo movement, Sir Elton gave a surprising answer. But Elton John says that's not the reason.

In terms of assets, Elton got almost $3.3 million (£2.3m) from the sale of his cars, including his 1993 Jaguar XJ220, Rolls Royce, Bentleys and Ferraris.
