A Trio of Retirement Tours

Recommended Posts

You probably heard about Elton John's farewell tour, but did you know that two weeks later, Paul Simon and Ozzy Osbourne announced their last tours?

Ozzy's tour is a sequel to his first farewell, the No More Tours tour in 1992. After deciding that life off the road didn't suit him, he embarked on his Retirement Sucks tour in 1995 and has been on the road ever since. His tour comes with the caveat that it only applies to "global touring," so he can still play lots of shows. The No More Tours tour wraps up in 2020.

Elton John is giving himself three years to wind things down. If by the end of it he wants to keep going, it won't be his first farewell tour fake-out - he announced his last show in 1977.

Simon seems most sincere, with an understated announcement that signals he's put some thought into it: "It feels a little unsettling, a touch exhilarating and something of a relief."

All there are certainly of retirement age: Ozzy is 69, Elton is 70, and Simon is 76.
