HEARTBREAKING News About ELTON JOHN Just ROCKED THE ENTIRE WORLD… OH NO!!
Sean Brown AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –
Elton John has been a musical legend for decades, with his hit songs soothing the souls of millions of people across the globe, but heartbreaking news about the 70-year-old just rocked the world.
Elton has been performing for over 50 years, and in that time he’s created more hit singles than just about any other artist out there. Along with producing music for so long has come a seemingly endless life on the road, touring different nations to see his fans in person and spending countless hours couped up in a tour bus.
Apparently, five decades of the rock star lifestyle has finally taken its toll on the world-famous musician, Variety reports. After spending the day Tuesday teasing fans about the future and where it “lies,” John announced this morning that his amazing career is finally coming to an end, but not before one last tour to thank those who’ve been faithful fans all of these years.
“Performing live fuels me, and I’m ecstatic and humbled to continue to play to audiences across the globe,” John said in a statement. “I plan to bring the passion and creativity that has entertained my fans for decades to my final tour. After the tour finishes, I’m very much looking forward to closing off that chapter of my life by saying farewell to life on the road. I need to dedicate more time to raising my children.”
More on John’s career from Variety:
John, who has been touring since 1969, is one of the most successful musicians and created hits like “Rocket Man,” appeared on soundtracks for “The Lion King,” and sold over 300 million albums worldwide. His 1997 tribute to Princess Diana of “Candle in the Wind” is one of the highest selling singles of all time, second only to Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas.”
John’s tours are known for his high production value and extravagant costumes. The musician first talked about the possibility of retiring from touring in March 2017 after he was hospitalized with a potentially deadly bacterial infection, and said although his retirement would allow him to spend more time with his family he would not be leaving music altogether.
Good luck on the journey for the rest of your life, friend.
