Sir Elton John will take a mini "hiatus" from music making "to figure out" what's next.

The 'Tiny Dancer' hitmaker will quit touring on July 8, 2023, after he's played the final date of his mammoth 'Farewell Yellow Brick Road' tour in Stockholm, Sweden.

And while he won't rule out collaborating with other artists, the 75-year-old music legend has no plans to release any new music next year and is planning to take a little break from the studio to decide what he wants to do.

Elton reassured fans that he will never give up music because it's so "incredibly healing".

The 'I'm Still Standing' hitmaker has some musicals on the way in the meantime, having penned the music for 'The Devil Wears Prada' stage adaptation and 'Tammy Faye' with Scissor Sisters' Jake Shears.

He continued: "There’s a documentary out next year, I have a musical coming out next year. I have a musical coming out this year at the Almeida Theatre called 'Tammy Faye' which I’ve written with Jake Shears from the Scissor Sisters. I like to keep myself busy but music to me is the most incredibly healing and fabulous thing. My whole life has been informed with music and it’s not going to stop now."
