The Beatles singer revealed that the news was a result of misquoting him. He said: “I did talk about retirement in one sentence in one story and only to say ''No way, Jose.'' But someone must have only read part of that one sentence.
"As long as people want to come and hear me, I'll probably be doing this. It's just so easy to start rumours." He is reportedly set to perform at China's famous Tiananmen Square and Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin, Germany on the route next year, according to different tabloids.
