Sir Elton John has a brand new musical "waiting to go".
The 'Tiny Dancer' hitmaker - who wrote the hits for the likes of 'Billy Elliot the Musical' and 'Aida' - has revealed he has been working on a brand new musical stage show.
Speaking on the George Ezra & Friends podcast, Elton did not divulge anything about the show's plot but did say he had worked with Jake Shears from the Scissor Sisters on the production.
The 71-year-old star announced earlier this year that he will undertake a three-year 'Farewell Yellow Brick Road' world tour to mark his retirement from touring, which will see him perform over 300 shows across the globe.
He said: "Performing live fuels me and I'm ecstatic and humbled to continue to play to audiences across the globe. I plan to bring the passion and creativity that has entertained my fans for decades to my final tour.
"After the tour finishes, I'm very much looking forward to closing off that chapter of my life by saying farewell to life on the road. I need to dedicate more time to raising my children."
Speaking about what he will do after he retires from touring, he added: "I'm always going to be creative, I'm always going to be interested in creative stuff, and you know, I think after this tour is finished, I'll take a few years off and see what's going to happen. But creatively, I will be doing writing a lot, and who knows what's going to happen. If you let things happen for you, that's the magic of life. I will be creative, hopefully, up until the day I die."
