Supergrass to split after farewell shows this summer – ticket details

Band to call it a day due to '17-year itch'

Supergrass have announced they are to split up.

The band, joking, cited a “17-year itch” for the reason to call it a day after six studio albums.

“Thanks to everyone who has supported us over the years,” explained the group in a statement. “We still love each other but, cliché notwithstanding, musical differences have led to us moving on and of course we all wish each other well in the future.”

The band had been working on a new album, but there is no word on whether this will be released or not.

Supergrass are set to play four farewell shows, with tickets going on sale on Friday (April 16) at 9am (BST).

Glasgow Barrowland (June 8)
Manchester Academy (9)
London O2 Academy Brixton (10)
Paris La Cigalle (11)
