Jake said: "This will be the last time we will play in London for quite some time."

Ana thanked London fans, saying the UK audience were: "The ones who got us first - and always get us best."

To mark their hiatus they played an extended show, singing early hits such as 'Laura', 'Mary', 'Kiss You Off' and closed the show with a spectacular rendition of 'Filthy / Gorgeous'.
