Elton John Rockets Retirement

Elton John rocketed toward retirement at Dodger Stadium

Forty seven years after he took the stage at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles in a sequined-studded baseball uniform as the world's biggest pop star

The crowd of more than 50,000 roared at the moment that came in the final minutes of the final North American concert of a tour John says will be his last

“I want to spend time with my family because I’ll be 76 next year, he said. “I want to bring them out and show you why I’m retiring.”

“Thank you all for dressing up," John said, "it makes me so happy when you wear the most fantastic costumes.”

Kiki Dee took the stage to sing their duet “Don't Go Breaking My Heart.”
