Elton John Addresses Those Retirement Rumors (Photo)

50th anniversary approaches

Don’t worry, “Tiny Dancer” fans — legend Elton John isn’t planning to retire anytime soon.

On Friday, The Daily Mail reported that John was ready to announce his retirement to spend more time with his family. However, the singer has debunked those reports in a new Instagram post Saturday.

The idea that the music icon would be retiring dates back to February, when he appeared on The Graham Norton Show and explained, “I’m gradually going to wind down because I want to see my boys grow up. What’s the point of having children if you don’t spend time with them?”

John is currently on tour in Europe, and will start his two-month stint at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas in late December. Then, he will continue his tour on its North American leg for one month and will return back to Europe for two months in June.

And John also will star in the upcoming “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” opposite Channing Tatum. In May, the musician shared the news about the sequel on Instagram after TheWrap reported in April that he was in talks for the role alongside Taron Egerton in the spy movie.
