Donegal chart-topper Daniel O'Donnell has told fans that he will be winding down his hectic touring schedule next year.

But the Donegal-born star, who will turn 50 in December of next year, has assured fans that he is not retiring.

The singer, who is currently on a three-week tour in Branson, Missouri, made the announcement on his official website.

He posted: "In December 2011, I will celebrate my 50th birthday! It will have been 30 years this coming January since I started my career.

"I have now decided that at the end of 2011 I will take a break from extensive touring."

He said that instead he would pick a venue in various locations where he could do a block of shows together.

"I am making this announcement now, so that those of you who wish to see us in this coming year will be aware that we may not be visiting your area for quite some time," he revealed.

He added that no details had been decided for the UK and Ireland for 2012.

Signing off, he thanked fans for their support.
