Sir Elton John is calling it quits on the road!By Roxanne Steele

One of music’s greatest Elton John is ready to quit touring after 50 years on stage but lucky for us he has one more final tour in him!  Find our Detroit date below.

Today the music legend announced his globe-spanning Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour, which John estimates will comprise 300 dates and three years. “It’ll be the best production I’ve ever done,” he promised. “It’ll be a wonderful way to thank everyone.”

John also addressed the rumors that he’s in poor health.   Last year he was put in intensive care after getting a deadly bacterial infection while on tour in South America.

“If you can do 300 shows, you’re not in ill health!”  He added that his touring on the road retirement doesn’t mean it’s the end of his career. “I will be creative hopefully up until the day I die.”

Elton John is set to perform “one of his classic hits” alongside special guest Miley Cyrus at Sunday’s big Grammy Awards.

If Sir Elton John is on your bucket list of concerts to see the time is now!  .Tickets to his Friday, October 12 concert at LCA go on sale Friday, February 2 at 10AM.
