Sir Elton John has announced that he’s going to be cutting back on his touring duties in order to spend more time with sons Zachary Jackson Levon, 4, and Elijah Joseph Daniel, 2. A message on his website reads:
“The simple truth is I want to spend more time with my family and less time touring. I am all too aware of how precious the time ahead is. My sons are growing up so quickly, their early years are just flying by and I want to be there with them. So this final Sioux Falls concert will give me one last chance to say farewell to my fans here who have been so faithful over the decades.”

Singer Sir Elton John has said he’d love to adopt a child with partner David Furnish after he visited an orphanage in the Ukraine for HIV-positive children and had his heart captured by 14-month-old baby boy Lev.
“David and I have always talked about adoption, David always wanted to adopt a child and I always said ‘no’ because I am 62 and I think because of the travelling I do and the life I have, maybe it wouldn’t be fair for the child.
“But having seen Lev today, I would love to adopt him. I don’t know how we do that but he has stolen my heart. And he has stolen David’s heart and it would be wonderful if we can have a home. I’ve changed my mind today.”
62-year-old Elton is unsure if he is able to adopt a Ukranian child due to it’s treaty with UK but hopes due to David’s Canadian roots that they “might be able to work through something like that.”
