    Annie Lennox has confirmed that her touring days are over. She's quitting life on the road because it leaves her "mentally and physically" exhausted. Touring is a hard shill, so we can't say we blame her for hanging up her mic! She's done it long enough.

    The former Eurythmics frontwoman 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. She released a Christmas album last year, too!

    Lennox took to Facebook to thank fans for their support over the years before announcing she will probably never tour again.

    Lennox posted the following note: "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."
