Rockers Supergrass have bid a final farewell to their native Britain after playing their last ever U.K. concert on Thursday night (10Jun10).
The group - made up of Gaz and Rob Coombes, Mick Quinn and Danny Goffey - announced earlier this year (10) they will be splitting up after 17 years following a farewell tour to mark the end of the band.
Supergrass will wrap up their final trek with a concert in Paris, France on Friday night (11Jun10) - but they bid an emotional goodbye to Britain as they played to a packed audience at London's O2 Academy Brixton on Thursday.
During the set, frontman Gaz Coombes told the crowd, "Well hello there, how you doing tonight? We're so glad you could come tonight, it's the last time Supergrass play in the U.K. This is for you guys, to say thanks. I hope we can go out on a high."
The group's set contained hits including Pumping On Your Stereo, Alright and Moving. At the end of the gig, Coombes added, "It's been a pretty f**king mental 17 years or so, thanks for coming tonight."
