Elton John  is officially stepping back from his  much-celebrated musical journey.

Speaking in a recent interview with Today, the 74-year-old reflected on his thoughts of spending more time with his family after retirement. 

"I'll be 76 [when the tour is over],"  he began, referring to his final Europe tour, scheduled in 2023.

"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 traveling. I don't want to be away from my family."

Elton John has two children, son Zachary, 10, and Elijah, 8 whom he shares with husband David Furnish.
