Sir Elton John won’t sell catalog back – Entertainment News

Sir Elton John has declined “head-spinning” offers to sell his previous inventory.

The 75-year-old singer has decided against following the likes of Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen by handing over the rights to some of his biggest hits because he doesn’t need the money and still “cares passionately” about his songs. .

Elton’s husband, David Furnish, said: “He absolutely cares about her lyrics, the whole notion of giving up control over that important part of his life is something he doesn’t want to entertain at the moment.

“Unless you really, really need the money, why would you drop out now? When you sell your publication you’re effectively out of the game. It would be a shame because we had to lose their catalog and new ones.” It’s a lot of fun celebrating the opportunities the media has to offer.”

The “Sacrifice” singer plans to leave the tour next July after more than 300 shows and David – who has sons Zachary, 11, and Elijah, nine, insisted that Elton was not considering a long-term residency in a There are fixed positions, though he may still do some “one-off” shows.

He told Eye newspaper: “We’re both finding it hard to be away from our kids, we spent so much time together in lockdown – it was a blessing and a gift because it deepened our bond with our kids so much.

“I think it controls residences as well. It’s not in the revised business plan. He wants a big break. It doesn’t rule out going one-off or going into a different type of venue that we’ve done before. “

But the couple hasn’t ruled out following ABBA and sending Elton holograms on stage.

David – who is CEO of Elton’s Rocket Entertainment group – said: “I’m looking forward to seeing the ‘Abba Voyage’ show. With technology and 3.0 anything is possible – we’ll sit down and discuss after the tour.”

“Right now you can see the real Elton singing and playing, which he’s never done before. We don’t want to distract from that.”

Once the tour ends, David and Elton will take steps to preserve the ‘Honky Cat’ hitmaker’s vast art and record collection, as well as iconic stage outfits.

David said: “It is necessary for these things to have a proper home. We have a great relationship with the VA and have contributed to a photography gallery there. Or we can create a permanent Alton Museum or a touring show using the latest technology. It’s all about catching up. ,
