The Rocket Man is ending his touring career in London.
On his penultimate tour of his career, Elton John completed what he claims was the final performance Saturday night.
According to his website, the renowned, award-winning musician performed on stage for ostensibly the final time as a travelling musician in Stockholm, Sweden.
The British music superstar said in the caption of a video he released on his official Instagram account on Saturday, "What a journey this tour has been and now we find ourselves at the end of it. The last night is tonight.
An excerpt from the musician's 2018 interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper, during which he announced his decision to stop touring, is included in the video. In the video, John states, "I will no longer be performing and traversing the world.
The "Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour" for the five-time Grammy winner began in 2018 and was initially scheduled to conclude in 2021 but was delayed owing to the COVID-19 outbreak. After more than 50 years of touring, this is his last tour, according to media reports.
According to John's Instagram video, the tour included more than 300 performances, and more than 6 million people from all around the world attended. On his farewell tour, the 76-year-old artist made Glastonbury Festival his final trip in the United Kingdom.
In an interview with Cooper in 2018, John explained that his decision to prioritize his family led to his retirement from the touring life. With her husband David Furnish, the musician has two boys.
He said to Cooper at the time, "We had children and had changed our life, and in 2015, we sat down with their school calendar and we thought I'm going to miss too much of this.
Even though he had finished touring, he continued to concentrate on new songs, he stated at the time.
