This breaks my heart… I knew I should have gone to see them when they came to Salt Lake City a few months back…
Panic at The Disco has made the announcement that they are breaking up after nearly 20 years together!
News broke earlier today when frontman Brendon Urie announced the band’s upcoming tour in Europe will be its last.
In a statement made to fans via social media, Brendon Urie said:
Well, it’s been a hell of a journey…
Growing up in Vegas I could’ve never imagined where this life would take me. So many places all over the world, and all the friends we’ve made along the way.
But sometimes a journey must end for a new one to begin. We’ve been trying to keep it to ourselves, though some of you may have heard.. Sarah and I are expecting a baby very soon! The prospect of being a father and getting to watch my wife become a mother is both humbling and exciting. I look forward to this next adventure.
Ahhh he is going to be a dad!! How exciting!
He then continued:
That said, I am going to bring this chapter of my life to an end and put my focus and energy on my family, and with that Panic! At The Disco will be no more.
Thank you all for your immense support over the years. I’ve sat here trying to come up with the perfect way to say this and I truly can’t put into words how much it has meant to us. Whether you’ve been here since the beginning or are just finding us, it has been a pleasure to not only share the stage with so many talented people but also share our time with you. I am looking forward to seeing everyone in Europe and the UK for one last run together.
I love you. I appreciate you. Thank you for existing.
While this is truly sad, I completely get it and respect Brendon for wanting to be with his family. Good for him!
Panic at the Disco’s final tour begins in Vienna on Feb. 20 and concludes in Manchester, England on March 10.
