Elton's decision to retire from touring comes at an important time in Elton's life. In 2017, he dealt with a potentially fatal infection, which led him to cancel shows. As early as 2015, John hinted at a possible retirement in an interview with Rolling Stone, saying, "I've had lots of time off with my children, and it's all got to change now that [my son] Zachary is starting school... I've got to be off when half-term comes. And I am planning on cutting down my shows to be with my children because that's what I really love."
