'Just Joking' Elton is Not Retiring
But he has threatened to throw in the towel before - in 2010 he claimed he was too old to be a pop star, and in 2012 he talked about wanting to spend more time with Zachary, his only child at the time.
However, Sir Elton still has quite a few tour dates left to honour, with 40 concerts still to come in America and Europe this year.
Sir Elton has two sons with husband David Furnish - Zachary, three, and Elijah, 18 months.
His spokesman later said that fans didn't need to worry about waving farewell just yet, explaining: "Elton was only joking."

Elton has spoken about cutting back on touring once his two sons are in school, but that won’t be for a couple of years.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has shows booked through the end of the year, and has talked about future recording projects in various interviews.
