Elton recently revealed he plans to quit touring in 2021 to spend more time at home with his family, and his spouse said it was a ”family decision.”

David Furnish said: ”We sat down about four years ago … It was a bitter-sweet decision to give up something you love but there is that greater love waiting for him at home. And on a selfish note, I couldn’t be happier.”

Elton announced in January that he would embark on a three-year Farewell Yellow Brick Road world tour to mark his retirement, which will see him play over 300 shows across the globe, concluding in 2021.

However, David also explained it isn’t the end for Elton as a musician, and confirmed he still has every intention to write new material – including for the stage – and even treat his fans to ”one-off performances.”

He explained: ”He’s still going to write music, he’s still going to put out albums, he’s going to be writing some musicals and he’ll still do one-off performances. He should never stop performing, that’s just who he is. It keeps him alive, I think.”
