Brandon Urie announces Panic at the Disco disbandment

Band will play its final shows in Europe

Panic at the Disco is breaking up after nearly 20 years together. Frontman Brandon Urie shared the news on the band’s socials on Tuesday (Jan 24th), stating he and his wife are first-time expectant parents.

“Growing up in Vegas I could’ve never imaged where this life would take me. So many places all over the world, and all the friends we’ve made along the way,” he writes.

“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.

“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.”

The group’s final run of shows kicks off February 20th in Vienna, Austria and runs through March 10th in Manchester, UK.
