PJ Harvey sensationally revealed onstage in Paris this weekend that she is quitting playing live.
The star was performing in front of 350 competition winners at Studio 287 in northern France when she announced: “This is the last show I will ever play.”
The comment came in the wake of the likely last ever live show from The Libertines on the same bill.
The comment also echoes the statement made by David Bowie back in 1973 at London Hammersmith Odeon. It later transpired he was only retiring his alter-ego Ziggy Stardust.
PJ Harvey played a set featuring songs covering her entire 13-year career, including ‘Victory’, ‘Me Jane’, ‘Shame’ and the closing ‘Meet Ze Monsta’.
