In a statement posted to True To You on Thursday, the former Smiths frontman Morrissey said his forthcoming shows at London’s Hammersmith Ballroom are “likely to be our final ever UK shows”

The popular singer explained, “without new releases, there is no point in any additional touring.” It’s unclear whether Morrissey intends to cease touring altogether, though he does have several more shows scheduled across Europe and South America in the next few months.

Read Morrissey’s full statement below:

“There is absolutely no way that we can generate any interest from record labels in the United Kingdom, therefore the imminent two nights at Hammersmith are likely to be our final ever UK shows. We are obsessively grateful for all interest and loyalty from our audience … throughout 28 years … but without new releases, there is no point in any additional touring. Thank you for so many absolutely incredible times. The pleasure and privilege is mine … “
