Panic! At The Disco frontman Brendon Urie has confirmed that the band will split after their forthcoming European concert tour. Urie wishes to put more focus and “energy” to his family after announcing him and his wife are expecting their first child.
The announcement was made on Tuesday (January 24) and nearly 20-years after the group formed in Las Vegas. Brendon Urie made the announcement on Instagram.
The post 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.”
Brendon Urie continues: “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.”
The Panic! At The Disco frontman went on to thank all of the fans for their years of support. Brendon has been using the pop-rock band as a vehicle for his solo career in recent years, having first formed in 2004 with co-founders Ryan Ross, Spencer Smith and Brent Wilson.
They went on to release seven albums with triumphant success, leading to over 9.8 million records sold. Popular tracks and singles such as ‘I Write Sins Not Tragedies’ and ‘Nine In The Afternoon’ catapulted them to stardom.
Panic! At The Disco’s final tour begins in Vienna on February 20 and concludes in Manchester on March 10. Other UK dates include Glasgow (March 3), Birmingham (March 4) and London (March 6 and 7).
