Elton John announced he is retiring, but not before a huge farewell tour!  The singer revealed that he’s tired of traveling and wants to spend more time with his husband, David Furnish, and their two sons, 5 year old Elijah and 7 year old Zachary.  The “Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour” will include shows at Madison Square Garden October 18th and 19th and at the Barclays Center on March 8th, 2019.  He also plans to stop at Nassau Coliseum sometime in the fall of 2019, but no date has been announced yet.  John said he still plans to record  more albums and perhaps work on more Broadway shows.
