The Australian band have been performing together since the late 1970s, but had previously gone on hiatus in 2002 before reforming in 2016.
According to a press release, all members of the band “remain open” to working together and recording new music in the future, as well as uniting to support causes that they believe in, but this will be the last time they tour.
