Elaine Paige - Elaine Paige To Retire From Touring

Singer Elaine Paige has announced her upcoming winter tour will be her last.

The 65-year-old Brit will step out of the spotlight following one final set of dates that will begin in October (14).

In a statement released at the weekend (15-16Feb14), the Memory singer admits she is "tired" of life on the road, adding, "My tours go on for years at a time and it's exhausting. I'll have a holiday and then I'm going to reinvent myself."

The Evita star adds, "I am currently preparing for my last tour, a farewell tour which begins on October 9. It's my 50th year in the music business and I'm saying goodbye. I've thought long and hard about this decision but I feel my 50th anniversary is a good time to bid adieu."

The tour will end a live career that began onstage in 1964, when she was just 16.
