At a New York press conference with Anderson Cooper this morning, the Sir Elton John announced his retirement from touring. But don’t worry, not just yet. You can still say your goodbyes to the music legend’s live show as he’s soon embarking on a whopping 300-show run, dubbed the ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour.

In a live-streamed video from the conference, John explains his reasoning to stop touring. He states, “My priorities have changed in my life. Ten years ago, if you’d have said I’m gonna stop touring, I’d have said, ‘No no, I’m a working musician. I always play.’ But we had children and that changed our lives.”

“I don’t want to go out with a whimper. I want to go out with a bang,” John followed. “It’ll be the most produced, fantastic show I’ve ever done.” Don’t miss out on your last chance to bellow along to “Tiny Dancer” in concert, when the tour kicks off this September at Allentown’s PPL Center and stays for two stops at Philly’s Wells Fargo Center.

Tickets go on sale February 2nd at 10 AM. Find info on the Philly shows here and check out the rest of the tour dates below.
