NEW YORK – It's a wrap for Gloria Estefan's (search) days on the road.
"Although I will continue writing and recording and doing everything else that comes with this incredible way of life, this next tour will be my last," the 46-year-old singer says in a posting on her Web site.
Estefan will begin her Live and Re-Wrapped (search) tour July 30 in Texas. The tour will conclude Sept. 25 in Miami, where Estefan lives with her husband-producer, Emilio.
In her message to fans, Estefan alluded to her hesitancy performing live: "I was never really a 'performer type' person."
While Estefan will no longer take to the stage, she assured fans that creating songs in the studio "never ceases to be a magical process for me."
She also said that she's putting a lot of energy into getting a film produced about singer Connie Francis (search), and is planning to write a book.
