    Elton John Announces Retirement from 'Tours'

    Renowned British musician Elton John has officially announced his decision to cease touring, marking a significant moment in the music industry.

    The esteemed 77-year-old individual recently confirmed during an interview with Entertainment Tonight that he will no longer be embarking on any future concert tours.

    His concluding performance occurred in July of last year, held in Stockholm, Sweden.

    “The last show in Stockholm on the farewell tour after Glastonbury, I got in the car and went, ‘Yes! yes!’ We went out on the biggest high, just the way I wanted to, and there’s no going back [after] that,” he said.

    Elton John’s farewell tour which ended early last year, bringing in $939 million (£749 million) over 328 shows, was the highest-grossing music tour in history before the record was overtaken by Taylor Swift’s ‘Eras’ tour.

    Era’s tour earned $1 billion in revenue to better Elton John’s record.

    Recognized by critics and musicians, especially for his contributions during the 1970s and his enduring influence on the music industry, his music and stage presence have had a substantial impact on popular music.
