Fans were taken aback when 2023 began with Brendon Urie of Panic! At The Disco announcing the band’s disbandment after nearly two decades. Many people have been wondering how much the singer earned during the band’s career now that he will no longer be as active in the music industry.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, the frontman’s net worth is estimated to be around $12 million as of this year. The majority of his earnings come from the band’s entire music catalog, which he founded in 2004.
Throughout the group’s career, the musician released four studio albums: “A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out” in 2005, “Pretty. Odd.” in 2008, “Vices & Virtues” in 2011, and 2013’s “Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!”
Despite the fact that Panic! At The Disco hasn’t released any music as a group in almost a decade, the 35-year-old musician has continued to release solo projects under the name.
In addition to being a musician, Urie made money as a Broadway actor, having previously played Charlie Price in “Kinky Boots.”
In an interview with Interview Magazine, the singer discussed his struggles with transitioning to acting at the age of 30, stating that he had difficulty memorizing his lines and delivering them with an English accent.
Brendon Urie confirmed to Deadline that the band would be disbanding after nearly 20 years together.
The musician announced the surprising news to fans on their official Instagram account, saying he and his wife Sarah are going to be parents and he wanted to focus his energy on his family.
“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!”
Urie then thanked fans for their support over the years, saying it’s been a pleasure to share the stage with so many talented people and those who came to their shows.
To give their fans one last surprise before disbanding, the band will embark on a tour across Europe and the United Kingdom, which will begin next month at the Stadthalle in Vienna, Austria.
Their final show, which is currently sold out, will take place on March 10, 2023, at the AO Arena in Manchester, United Kingdom. Tickets for the show are available on their official website for fans who want to watch it live.
