John shared his views when he appeared on ‘The Graham Norton Show’ recently, reports dailymail.co.uk.
Revealing that he aims to put his close knit family first, the 69-year-old musician said that he would not globe trot forever because he wanted to see his two young sons grow up. John is due to go on a tour with close friend Rod Thomas, the musician who goes by the stage name Bright Light Bright Light.
Asked if the forthcoming tour is a ‘farewell tour’, John said: “Not necessarily. I like playing and I’m a working musician and I love to do it. If you’re feeling fresh and energetic, do it while you can. I’m not going to do it forever because I want to see my boys grow up.”
He has sons Zachary and Elijah with husband David Furnish, to whom he proposed 11 years ago. They celebrated a civil partnership on 21 December 2005 and, following the legalisation of gay marriage, the couple wed at their home at Old Windsor in December 2014.
