The 70-year-old announced at a press conference on Wednesday that his massive 300-date tour will be his last.

Promising the tour will feature “the best produdction we’ve ever done,” John revealed that he’s partnering with Gucci, who will design his stage outfits as well as merchandise for pop-up shops.
