Tour: The 76-year-old singer started his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour in Liverpool last week
Elton has revealed how he got in shape for the final leg of his farewell tour by walking six miles a week in his swimming pool.
His Farewell tour marks Sir Elton’s final live concerts, with just under 50 shows left on the tour to play, including this week in Ireland.
The tour has suffered serious delays several times since its announcement by Sir Elton five years ago.
Sir Elton suffered a health scare from pneumonia and had to undergo a hip replacement and was delayed by the pandemic.
But he has now revealed that he has taken advantage of the lockdown to build a new fitness routine.
Sir Elton said, ‘I get up, have breakfast and go for a walk in the pool. At my age, that’s the best I can do. I walk sideways and do about six miles a week.”
His final UK appearance will be at Glastonbury in June, before his last date in Sweden next month.
It comes after Sir Elton took to Instagram on Saturday to show his fans how he celebrated turning 76.
The Don’t Go Breaking My Heart hitmaker spent the big day with his husband David Furnish, 60, and their two children Zachary Furnish-John, 13, and Elijah Furnish-John, 10.
He posted some snaps for his 4.4 million followers showing off some huge pink and gold balloons, plus a sweet gift of 100 oaks.
Although the trees were not yet fully grown, they were twigs from acorns from an old tree that had been part of Sir Elton’s driveway for years.

Describing the day as ‘magical’ and a ‘real celebration’ it was the tasty cake that stole the show.
Decorated with fondant icing, it envisioned Elton as an edible, piano-playing version of himself dressed in a few of his signature specs.
Across the top of the piano was a fondant that David glazed, staring into Elton’s eyes as their children could be seen lying down, seemingly listening to the songs played in the imaginary scene.
Elton captioned the photos, “I absolutely loved my birthday! A magical day with @davidfurnish and our beautiful sons.
‘From the most spectacular cake to the gift of 100 oaks grown from acorns from the ancient tree that has graced my driveway for centuries, it was a real celebration.
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all the friends and fans who sent flowers and lovely messages.”
The music legend then posted a series of stories from famous faces congratulating him on the milestone.
They included Taron Egerton, who famously played him in the biopic Rocketman, comedian David Walliams, actor Russell Tovey, and makeup mastermind Charlotte Tilbury.

Sir Elton, who is currently on his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, has a music career spanning more than five decades.
He has sold more than 300 million records worldwide and was knighted in 1998 for services to music and charity.
Explaining why the legendary singer wants to take his final bow from touring, husband David told Billboard:
“As long as I’ve known Elton, he’s been on the road doing 90 to 100 shows a year. It’s a big obligation.’
