Dance music über-stars Swedish House Mafia ended five years of live house music dominance over the weekend with a brief statement posted on their website announcing that they will no longer be performing live.

"Today we want to share with you, that the tour we are about to go on will be our last," the group wrote. "We want to thank every single one of you that came with us on our journey. We came, we raved, we loved. Axwell, Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso a/k/a Swedish House Mafia."

The trio, who sold out Madison Square Garden last year in less than an hour, will be playing shows in the UK and Sweden, as well as a six-week residency in dance mecca Ibiza. Their July 14 show at Milton Keynes Bowl will be their last in the UK, according to their website. No future U.S. dates have been announced, though the group hinted at more shows, ending their brief message with "The final leg of this journey will be announced in August."
