The Scissor Sisters closed their UK tour last night in London - announcing an indefinite hiatus at their Camden Roundhouse gig.

The New York band performed their second of two nights at the North London venue, playing an extended set as a thank you to fans - announcing their separation towards the end of the show.

Frontman Jake Shears told the audience "This will be the last time we will play in London for quite some time," after Ana Matronic thanked London fans, saying the UK audience was "The ones who got us first - and always get us best."

To mark their hiatus the four-piece played an extended show, playing early hits including 'Laura', 'Mary', 'Kiss You Off' and closing the show with a spectacular rendition of 'Filthy / Gorgeous'.

The show also included performances of singles including 'Fire With Fire', 'Invisible Light', 'Only The Horses', 'Shady Love', 'I Don't Feel Like Dancing', 'Take Your Mama' and Pink Floyd cover, 'Comfortably Numb'.

Following the show, band members confirmed to Gigwise that there were currently no plans for the band to return to the studio to record a follow up to their 2012 album, Magic Hour. Guitarist Del Marquis reveals he has solo work in the pipeline and Ana Matronic is close to completing work on a comic book project.

The flamboyant singer reassured fans that this was not the end of Scissor Sisters, telling Gigwise "Don't you worry - this isn't the last you've heard of us," at the official after party, held at Camden's Lock Tavern.

The Scissor Sisters were supported by London-based band Bright Light Bright Light at the show, who joined the Scissor Sisters on stage for a performance of the band's fan-favourite track, 'Let's Have A Kiki'.
