Having just played NYC’s Governors Ball, Mitski added a headlining hometown show for 7th September at SummerStage in Central Park, and has stated: “This will be my last show indefinitely, and I’m glad it’s ending in NY where I came up.” In a reply, she added, “It’s time to be a human again. And have a place to live.”
Having the internet into hyperdrive, the ‘Your Best American Girl’ singer later clarified: “Y’all, I’m not quitting music! Me? Quit music?? I’ve been on non-stop tour for over 5years, 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.
I don’t want to make art like that, especially when you’re offering your valuable time and hearts and money to it. So I hope you’ll have me back whenever that is, or if I start over then I start over. Thank you so much for all your support!”
Tickets for the final show will go on general sale at 10 am EDT on Friday (7th June) and will be available to purchase from Mitski’s official website.
