After a 20 year long run, band frontman Brendon Urie shared that after their upcoming European tour “Panic! At The Disco will be no more.”

“Well, it’s been a hell of a journey,” Brendon started his message. “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,” he continued. Sharing some exciting news, Brendon revealed, “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.”

“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,” Brendon went on to say. “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."

Concluding with, “I love you. I appreciate you. Thank you for existing.”

Since forming the pop-rock band in Las Vegas nearly 20 years ago, Brendon, whose remained it’s sole constant member, has gradually been doing his solo thing. So while this sucks, it’s not honestly not a surprising natural progression.

Panic!’s final tour will begin in Vienna on February 20, and will run through March 10, concluding in Manchester, England.
