Elton John Quits Touring, Making Music at Carcassonne Festival, France
Announcing he will quit "The music business" to dedicate his life to "his children," the great Elton surprised the audience of Jean Deschamps theater filled to the last seat.
It was at the end of the third song, the infamous 'Candle in the Wind' that Sir Elton John announced "no more."
More shows are still scheduled for this current tour, a tour that will be the last.
Please note: This is a rough translation from French to English. A transcript or recording of Elton's comments is not available. The exact nature of his comments and full intent are unknown.
