'I want to thank you so much for your support over the last 25 years. It's been the most wonderful ride,' vocalist Mick Hucknall said Sunday, December 19.

British band Simply Red have bowed out of the music industry, performing their last ever concert after 25 years together. Frontman Mick Hucknall announced plans to break up the band last year and started the group's farewell trek in the U.K. earlier this month.

The "Fairground" hitmakers performed their last show at London's O2 Arena on Sunday, December 19 night, playing a string of their classic hits. Hucknall told the crowd, "I want to thank you so much for your support over the last 25 years. It's been the most wonderful ride," before adding at the end of the show: "Good night, adios, Simply Red are no more."

The gig was also broadcast in cinemas across the U.K. and Europe. Hucknall, who recently replaced in reformed band The Faces, is now planning to embark on a solo career.
