Annie Lennox is refusing to tour on the back of a new Eurythmics greatest hits compilation because she hated hitting the road with Sting last year (04).

The LOVE IS A STRANGER singer has turned down big-money offers to hit the road again with on/off partner Dave Stewart because she hates the idea of touring.

She says, "I get all anxious and I can't calm down. And to do the 54 dates I did with Sting, it was mad.

"I don't really know why I did it. I thought I misread the amount of dates."
