Sir Cliff Richard has insisted that he will never retire - but that he has slowed down.
The singer, who is releasing a new album, will be 71 the day before his UK tour starts in October.
He said: "While I won't ever retire - it sounds so serious, that word - I have tried to slow down.
"I mean, I could stop tomorrow, not announce anything officially and just work when I want to.
"I could do something every five years and no-one would stop me doing that, but I have too much fun.
"As long as I don't have to go on stage with a Zimmer frame, I'll keep going."
Sir Cliff will be performing classic hits such as Living Doll and We Don't Talk Anymore as well as his new songs on stage.
He said of his chart-toppers: "We sold millions of records in those days. People are getting to number one with 50,000 sales these days, but at least when I get on stage and sing a hit, it really was a hit.
"It's amazing how many people know my songs."
