Elton said he made the decision to retire from touring because he wants to focus on his children, husband, and family. He had his husband, David Frunish, 55, have two children. Zachary is 7 years old and Elijah is 5 years old.

The good news is that we can still expect to hear new music from the the "Goodbye Yellowbrick Road" singer. He says he will continue to make new music and work on creative projects after the tour concludes.

Elton John will perform alongisde Miley Cyrus during Sunday’s GRAMMY Awards. He will also be performing during a GRAMMY special, which will be recorded on January 30. The star-studded show, titled Elton John: I'm Still Standing - A Grammy Salute, will air later this year on CBS.
