That said, the veteran rock and pop star played 87 shows a year ago, including one at Blackburn Rovers' Ewood Park stadium, across Europe, Australia and his Las Vegas show The Million Dollar Piano. "And I thought the time is right to say thank you to all my fans around the world globally and to say goodbye and just to have a breathe".
