Elaine Paige’s 2014 Tour Will Be Her Last



Elaine Paige has announced she’s retiring from touring. The 65-year old singer stated that her upcoming tour in October will be her last after almost 50 years in the music business.

Last weekend she made a statement saying she’s tired of touring 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 Brit singer added, “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.”

Believe it or not, her career began in 1964 when she made her debut album at the age of 16. Paige has also starred on Broadway in Sunset Boulevard and Follies.

During her career, she has released 22 solo albums and since 2004 she has hosted her TV show on BBC Two called Elaine Paige on Sunday.

Her last tour Page by Page by Paige will start on October 9, in Wales.
