Sir Elton John has announced his farewell tour after a career of nearly 50 years.
I was very fortunate to see Elton the last two times he came to Augusta - once with my wife, once with my daughter.
The Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour will span three years with more than 300 shows in five continents. It kicks off in the US in September and will end in 2020.
"I'm not going to be touring anymore," he told moderator Anderson Cooper at New York's Gotham Hall. "I'm not going to be touring and traveling the world. My priorities have changed. I have young children." Before he finishes, however, he will spend three years on the road saying goodbye to his fans with a 300-date tour he's dubbed Farewell Yellow Brick Road. "That doesn't mean I won't still be creative," he said. "But I won't travel any more...I don't want to go out with a whimper. I want to go out with a bang...It'll be the most produced, fantastic show I've ever done."
