Sir Elton John has officially made the announcement about his future career at a press conference in New York. 

The star has revealed he plans to put on one final world tour before he retires. 

His last world tour is set to start in September. 

The Yellow Brick Road tour will be over 300 days. 

He will be touring until around 2021, all around the world, in every continent. 

He has criticised the press today who reported he was retiring due to ill-health. 

The 70-year-old had a countdown on his website all day today (Wednesday 24th January 2018), before the news was finally revealed at 5.30pm.

During his announcement he said: "I want to go out with a bang. I want my music to be heard.

"I want to say thank you and leave people thinking 'I saw the last show and it was fantastic'."
