Fans of Calvin Harris, your chances of seeing him live may be numbered.

After turning 40 last month, the Scottish DJ and musician revealed in an interview with the radio program Capital Dance that he will likely only continue DJing throughout the next 10 years of his life.

Harris said entering his fourth decade of life "feels good," though he wasn't exactly excited for the milestone birthday. "I think in the run up to it, you’re googling anti-aging supplements," he quipped.

"You know, my missus, she’s got so much energy. I’m trying to keep up with her," he added, referring to his wife, Vick Hope, 34, whom he married in September 2023.

"I always said that once I get past 50, I can’t see me DJing, man," revealed the Grammy winner, to which host MistaJam responded by pointing out renowned British DJ Carl Cox, who remains active at age 61.

"It’s a certain type of DJing," clarified Harris, who's headlined festivals around the world including Coachella. "On the more commercial end, it gets a wee bit… a little bit suspect."

He then spoke about how he plans to transition his career after eventually leaving the DJ decks behind. "I think I’d prefer to be in the studio making tunes, like ghost producers," added the star, who's produced hits including Rihanna's "We Found Love" and Dua Lipa's "One Kiss."

"I think that’s where the majority of my talent lies, is making songs sound good," stated Harris. "So, I would like to make other people’s records sound good."

While his DJ career may not come to an end for about a decade, he predicted a shift into producing for other artists could come around the time he turns "42, 43 — something like that."
