“Say goodnight, but mean goodbye”
Ladies and gentlemen, the rumors are true. After ten years, close to a hundred recorded songs and several trips around the world, The Get Up Kids
will be playing their last shows this summer. We’re celebrating the release of our as-of-yet-untitled live record and we’re coming around one final time. We’ll be playing gigs in the west, in the east and in the middle of the US. Our very last show will be in Kansas City, MO (our hometown) Fourth of July weekend 2005.
As a group we’d like to thank each and everyone of you for supporting us over the years. Whether we slept on your floor in ’97 or you drove
all the way to Lawrence to see us play in ’05, we are forever grateful. We feel it’s best to let the last ten years speak as a document for what the
band was. We can look back and say that we are proud of everything that we accomplished. In the end, we will always remember this as a good time;
we hope that you remember it that way too.
See you this summer,
The Get Up Kids
