One of music’s most legendary figures is calling it quits.
In a dramatic announcement video, Elton John announced his retirement – and a huge tour to send himself off.
Over the next three years, he’ll be travelling the world, playing the classics.
There’s no word yet on whether he’ll be returning to Victoria, but with over 300 concert dates on the horizon, there’s a good chance that he’ll at least be performing in the neighbourhood (i.e. Vancouver or Seattle).
