Annie Lennox Announces Tour Retirement


Annie Lennox


Annie Lennox has confirmed her touring days are over - she's quitting life on the road because it leaves her 'mentally and physically' exhausted.

The former Eurythmics frontwoman, Annie Lennox, has been performing gigs since launching her music career in the late 1970s, but in recent years she has concentrated more on her philanthropy work.

On Friday, April 15 she took to Facebook.com to thank fans for their support over the years before announcing she will probably never tour again.

She cites health issues including foot and back troubles for her decision, and also admits she has "spent enough time" dealing with the boredom of touring.

Lennox writes, "You've sent in the most lovely comments, and it's kind of thrilling to get replies from as far as Hawaii to Poland! I doubt that I'll ever tour again because quite honestly... it just wears me out mentally and physically, and my back and left foot are rubbish."

"In any case, I think I spent enough time waiting in cars, hotel rooms and dressing rooms... In the future performers will tour by hologram on a regular basis... love Annie."
