The end of the road has come for Elton John as he announced his retirement from touring at a press conference today. Before he says goodbye, he'll be going on a massive 300 show tour that will span three years. In a press conference, John announced (via Radio.com) “We want to go out properly. We want to go out with a bang, not a whimper." John added, “My life has changed. My priorities have changed. My priorities are my children and my husband. I thought the time was right to say thank you to my fans around the world.” While he'll be retiring from touring, John will continue to create and write new music.
