Westerberg announced from the stage at Primavera Porto on Friday, June 5 that it was be their final show together, reports The Guardian. He also noted that the rest of the band – who reformed in 2013 – had stayed at their hotel rather than soundchecking, calling them “lazy bastards to the end”.

Considering the band’s future in an interview with Uncut earlier this year, Westerberg said, “There’s a 50/50 chance that we might not ever play another note, or it might last another 5 years. As of today, I don’t even know who’s in the band! My bet is that we’ll finish this year out with the same four as last year, hopefully no one will die, and we’ll reassess. If it continues to be fun, we’ll play. If it’s not fun, we can at least get it up for the show. It’s what I wanna do for now, anyway.”
