The above neon sign appears at the GBV.com site.

“Sad to see Guided by Voices break up, but they had a great second run. We loved playing with them, but more than that loved having them as friends. Much love to Bob and the gang and best to all going forward. GBV!” —Sweet Apple
It is done.
The mighty GBV have put the beast to rest. At the Guided By Voices website gbv.com, it was posted, “Guided By Voices has come to an end. With 4 years of great shows and six killer albums, it was a hell of a comeback run. The remaining shows in the next two months are unfortunately canceled. Our sincere apologies to those that have purchased tickets and made travel plans. Thanks to everyone who has supported GBV.”
A dozen shows that had previously been announced are now showing delete marks through all the dates at the site. No further details have been posted. I guess that means I can’t get my original ’92 tour teeshirt autographed like I was planning… sigh…
