Brendon Urie’s statement
The lead showman of the pop band Panic! At The Disco, Brendon Urie released a statement on Instagram stating he and his wife are expecting a baby soon. Thus, he would like to only channel his energy into being a good father to his child and unfortunately cannot give the band his hundred percent attention.
Brendon Urie goes on to explain how excited he is to start this new chapter along with his wife. Words fell short to describe the emotions he was feeling but he did his best to convey them fully. Urie wrote in disbelief,
“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.”
Urie is extremely thankful to his fans and supporters whether some have been there from day one or found them recently. He was very happy and grateful he and the band members had the opportunity to share their art with their audience.
“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.”
He ended his statement by focusing on things on the bright side. And shared his excitement about seeing his fans for the last time on the tour for now. Promising a great last show as any showman ever would.
The end of Panic! At The Disco marks the end of an era
Well technically, the band has been broken for quite some time. The band garnered a reputation for being Brendon Urie’s solo project since 2016. After Wilson and Smith departed in the gap of a few years, Brendon Urie was the only one fueling it. But now it is done for good. Songs like I Write Sins, Not Tragedies and many more are the legacy they are living behind
The band first rose to fame with A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out, and the song Write Sins Not Tragedies, changed its trajectory. After which several popular albums followed and most recently the collaboration with Taylor Swift‘s Me! reshaped the band’s popularity.
For now, Brendon Urie is excited at the prospect of being a father and wants to cherish every second of the moment. It is truly a nostalgic moment for the 2000s kids as an entire era came to an end with this breakup.
