Sir Elton John is doing better than ever at the age of 75, insisting he’s never felt fitter.

The music legend is (finally) after 52 years of delighting audiences on the road – and despite it being the last time, he promised he’s got ‘plenty in the tank’.

‘I honestly believe that they’re up there with the best shows I’ve ever done,’ Sir Elton reflected of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour.

‘Everyone has been cooped up and not seen any live music for quite some time, so I think people are ready for it.’

‘My fans have been so patient waiting for these shows to come around so I’m determined to deliver something truly special. For them to welcome me with such love and energy is wonderful,’ he added to the PA news agency.

‘Also, I’ve never felt fitter and in better shape. I’m playing for over 2.5 hours a night and have so much more in the tank.’

Sir Elton went on to say that the shows are ‘poignant’ as he’ll be visiting some of the places for the last time.

He kicked off his tour, which had to be delayed due to Covid-19, in June and it’s set to run until 2023.

In the midst of it, he played at London’s BST Hyde Park, proving he’s still the greatest showman.

He explained: ‘It was an extremely long walk to get to the plane, so my team kindly laid on a wheelchair so I could rest my hip after doing the show. That’s all folks.’

Sir Elton’s latest album, The Lockdown Sessions, was released in October 2021 and went straight to the top spot in the UK album charts.

Its lead single, Cold Heart (PNAU Remix) with Dua Lipa, also topped the UK charts.
