Legendary musician Elton John plans to perform his lesser-known songs after he completes his postponed Farewell Yellow Brick Road world tour.
“I’m lucky to have so many great songs to play every night,” John told Record Collector. “But there is a point in time where you think, ‘I don’t really want to play this anymore. There are things like ‘Original Sin’ or ‘(Gotta Get a) Meal Ticket’ that I haven’t really played before – not enough anyway. But if I have to go back and play ‘Crocodile Rock’ again, it’s like, ‘I’m gonna kill myself.”
“So, after I’ve finished this tour, I don’t want to play some of these songs any more,” he added. “I’d like to do something like Kate Bush, where I can do a show and play some of these songs that are deep cuts.”
John also revealed that he is not planning to make a new album in the near future, as he feels that there is no need for “another Elton John record out at the moment.”
“I have no idea what the f**k I’m going to do next, and that feels great. I just don’t think this is a time for me to think about recording. I’m a dad and I love being a dad. I will get in the mood to record again – and I’ll get in the mood to write. But no one needs another Elton John record out at the moment,” he said.
