"We had children and had changed our lives and in 2015 we sat down with their school schedule and we said I'm going to miss too much of this". We have children. I've had an awesome life, an fantastic career, but my life has changed. In the press today, in England, of course, they said I'm retiring because of ill health. "But I won't travel any more". I don't want to do the travelling, I want to be at home. I've had an incredible life but life is all about change. "I need to dedicate more time to raising my children". "You can FaceTime all you want but it's not the same as being with them".

Elton's legendary tours frequently took him to Chicago's stages, including Wrigley Field.
