Panic! At The Disco To Disband After European Tour
Panic! At The Disco co-founder and frontman Brendon Urie has announced that his solo pop rock project will disband after its farewell tour.
Announcing his decision on Instagram on Tuesday, Urie said he would like to spend more time with his family, as it is going to expand.
“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,” Urie said in a statement.
He added “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.”
Urie expressed gratitude to all the PATD fans for their immense support over the years.
“I am looking forward to seeing everyone in Europe and the UK for one last run together,” Urie said, referring to his ongoing Viva Las Vengeance Tour.
The North America and Europe tour, in support of Panic! At The Disco’s seventh and last studio album Viva Las Vengeance, is set to conclude on March 10, 2023, at the AO Arena in Manchester, England.
Panic! at the Disco was originally a pop rock band from Las Vegas, formed in 2004 by childhood friends Urie, Ryan Ross, Spencer Smith, and Brent Wilson.
In 2015, Smith officially left the band after not performing live with them since 2013. Shortly thereafter, bassist Dallon Weekes reverted to being a touring member once again, resulting in Panic! At The Disco becoming Urie’s solo project.
