Vocalist Brendon Urie announced this Tuesday (24th) that Panic! The disco has come to an end.
The band formed in 2005 and broke out with emo rock, with songs like “I Write Sins Not Tragedies”.
Brendon has remained the only member of the original line-up since 2015.
In the long text posted to the band’s Instagram, he says he’s going to be a father and will devote time to his family.
“Sarah and I are expecting a baby very soon! The prospect of becoming a father and watching my wife become a mother is humbling and exciting. I look forward to this next adventure.”
“With that, I will close this chapter of my life and put my focus and energy on my family and with it, Panic! At The Disco will no longer exist.”
Brendon also said he’s “looking forward” to seeing fans at the final shows in Europe and the UK, which will take place between February and March of this year.
panic! At Rock in Rio 2019
Panic! At The Disco came to Brazil in 2019 as an attraction on The Rock at Rio’s Universal Theatre. They played before the Red Hot Chili Peppers with some old emo songs and a Queen cover.
The show was headlined by Brendon in a gold suit making faces, mouths and trebles, a band with brass and violin, and a piano on stage and shouting fans at the railings.
That year, panic was getting a second life on the US charts with the hit “High Hopes”. It was even better than the successes of the first album.
In August 2022, the band released the album “Viva Las Vengeance”, which thus became their last album.
