Elton John is a long way off from the end of his “Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour,” but he’s already looking forward to life after touring for one very specific reason.

In a new interview on the Deeney Talks podcast, Sir Elton said, “The last time I have to sing ‘Crocodile Rock,’ I will probably throw a party. But people love to hear it. It was written as a kind of joke, as a pastiche, and it became a big hit and people love to sing along with it.”

John added, “Who am I to say, ‘I am not going to play it’? … I play to amuse people and to entertain people. But I have to say, when the last show is done at the end of the tour, I will never ever sing that song again.”

Sir Elton will still have to wait at least two years for his wish to become a reality. Back in September 2020, he announced that the postponed North American leg of his farewell tour will be taking place in 2022. John also mentioned on Deeny Talks that his tour will finally wrap in 2023.
