"I love that you guys are here and we are ending it in Ipswich. This is my last gig for probably 18 months," he said. "It kind of feels like, in a weird way, that you're breaking up with a girlfriend that you've been with for years. It sounds odd but it has been a long tour."

"We've played all around the world," the "Beautiful People" singer said. "Glastonbury, Wembley Stadium. All these amazing venues, America, New Zealand, Australia, Asia, South America—it's been a wild one."
