British entertainer Elton John has announced that he is retiring from touring, saying he wants to devote himself to his children.

But that will be after a massive global tour.

John, 70, says he plans to “go out with a bang” with a global tour that will open on September 8 and last through 2021.

“It’s the last time that I will be touring and traveling the world, because my priorities have changed in my life,” John told several hundred journalists and guests after a mini-concert and virtual reality presentation of his career.

“I’ve had an amazing life, I’ve had an amazing career,” he said, adding: “My priorities now are my children and my husband and my family.”

He, however, said he had no health concerns, despite a scare with a bacterial infection that caused him to cancel South American dates last year.

John also said he would stay active, hoping to record more albums and write further musicals.
