Elton John has concluded his 'Farewell Yellow Brick Road' final world tour, bringing thousands of people into packed stadiums to listen to his music.
"It's been my lifeblood to play for you guys, and you've been absolutely magnificent," he told the audience at his Stockholm show.
But aside from performing to adoring crowds and carrying out philanthropic work, the 76-year-old Rocket Man is just a regular dad and husband who wants to spend more time with his family.
"They're going to be teenagers soon," Elton said of his two boys in a 2021 interview.
"I don't know how much time I have left on this earth after that. You know, I've had enough applause. I don't want to keep travelling. I don't want to be away from my family," he added.
Elton first met his husband of 17 years David Furnish in 1993. They share a 12-year-old son, Zachary and 10-year-old Elijah.
