Ian Gavan/Getty Images for HarlequinsSir Elton John is retiring from the road — but not just yet.

Saying “my priorities now are my children, my husband, and my family,” the rock and pop icon announced at a live New York City press conference Wednesday afternoon, with assistance from Anderson Cooper, that he’ll end his time on the road with a 300-date world tour, dubbed the “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour, which Elton promised will be the “best tour I’ve ever done.”

He also denied claims his decision was due to ill health, saying he wouldn’t mount a 300-date world tour if he were in ill health.

Elton also insisted he will still make music and record, including work on musicals.
