Mitski tweeted: “This will be my last show indefinitely, and I’m glad it’s ending in NY where I came up.” She broke her fan’s hearts when she announced this. Later on, she clarified that her break doesn’t mean she’s done with music forever.
She wrote: “Y’all, I’m not quitting music! Me? Quit music?? I’ve been on non-stop tour for over 5 years, I haven’t had a place to live during this time, & I sense that if I don’t step away soon, my self-worth/identity will start depending too much on staying in the game, in the constant churn.” She ended with, “So I hope you’ll have me back whenever that is, or if I start over then I start over.”
The Summerstage concert will close out Mitski’s tour in support of her recent album, Be The Cowboy.
