If you have just gone through a heartbreak, then ‘Breaking Hearts’, an album recorded by Sir Elton in December 1983 is tailor-made for you. After churning out more than 50 chartbusters in a career spanning over five and a half decades, the veteran decided to retire from touring in January 2018. Many of his fans were left heartbroken after the legend’s decision to retire was made public. Consequently, Sir Elton John’s Retirement Tour was launched.
