Mr John shared his views when he appeared on The Graham Norton Show on Thursday.
Revealing that he aims to put his close knit family first, the 69-year-old musician said that he would not globe trot forever because he wanted to see his two young sons grow up.

When asked if the forthcoming tour is a 'farewell tour', he said: "Not necessarily. I like playing and I'm a working musician and I love to do it. If you're feeling fresh and energetic do it while you can. I'm not going to do it forever because I want to see my boys grow up."
He has sons Zachary and Elijah with husband David Furnish, to whom he proposed 11 years ago.
They celebrated a civil partnership on 21 December 2005 and, following the legalisation of gay marriage, the couple wed at their home at Old Windsor in December 2014.
