He told the audience at the New York stop of his “This Is America” tour as much on Friday night.

“If you bought a ticket to this concert, that means you bought a ticket to the last Childish Gambino tour ever,” he told fans at Madison Square Garden, according to Rolling Stone.
The announcement should not be a surprise to many. Glover initially told fans during a live show last year that his next Gambino album would also be the last record to be released under the moniker.

He reiterated his thoughts in January after winning the Grammy for Best Traditional R&B Performance for his song ‘Redbone’.
“I stand by that,” Glover told reporters of his decision. “I’m really appreciative of this [Grammy]. I’m making another project right now. But I like endings, I think they’re important to progress.
“I think if a lot of things had death clauses in them we wouldn’t have a lot of problems in the world, to be honest. I think endings are good because they force things to get better.”
