He might be nervous about Paris. In Alice Cooper's song "My Stars" there's the line: "The power in my little hand/Could melt the Eiffel Tower, turn the Sphinx into sand".

I think it is safe to say, Mike won't tour again, but I can see another premier concert, this time for Tubular Bells IV whenever that is released, it was 2017 when he last made a statement about it, come on Mike give us some news!!!

But let's not forget that Nick Mason - at the tender age of 75 - said "Sod it!" after 25 years of not playing live, and formed a new band to tour with.
I've heard that Rick Fenn, Simon Philips and Phil Spalding are all available... :P

With such a long delay you can't help wondering whether there may be some concrete reason behind it. Beethoven went deaf, for example - it would be a tragedy if something like that is behind Mike's silence...

That would be a tragedy indeed. It is a shame Caroline Monk is not still involved with Mike, or we could ask her :/

Maybe Mike is just having a well earned break. Working on his project when the mood takes him. We wouldn't want to rush something like that!
