RBD has announced  its current world tour will be "the beginning of the end" for the Mexican pop group, but did not give an exact date for its breakup.
"Every big project needs to make changes in order to move on, and today we are initiating that process," the band stated on its Web site.
A spokeswoman for the band said the six members wished to pursue solo careers in music and acting, but would not confirm whether Televisa would keep managing them on an individual basis.
The spokeswoman said the band has one studio album left to record, to be released worldwide in February.
RBD has sold nearly 2 million copies of its albums in the United States and Puerto Rico, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and over 11 million worldwide, according to management.
RBD's current "Empezar Desde Cero" tour has grossed about $9.2 million from 34 shows since the tour's start in February, according to Billboard Boxscore. The group will play the remaining 29 concerts it has left this year, including dates in Spain Aug. 21, 23 and 25, and will continue with shows in Slovenia, Serbia, Romania, Venezuela, Argentina, Peru, Brazil, Los Angeles and Mexico.
In a statement on univision.com , Pedro Damian, the producer who brought RBD's telenovela "Rebelde" to Televisa in 2004, said the group was beginning its "transformation" but that "it will be the public and the fans who will decide when it will happen."
Roptus CEO Guillermo Rosas, whose company promotes RBD's tours, told Billboard, "These next 29 shows will be the last shows in those cities where you'll be able to see RBD together. But it's a possibility that next year we [will] do an additional 10 or 15 cities that we can't do logistically this year."
The group's Los Angeles stop is likely to be the first week of December, consisting of either one stadium date or multiple smaller shows, says Rosas.
RBD kicked off its first U.S. tour in 2006 with a show at Los Angeles' Coliseum that sold 63,000 tickets. That catapulted the band to the No. 1 Latin tour of 2006, with a gross of nearly $31 million across 51 shows, according to Billboard Boxscore. In 2007, the band brought in $18 million from 37 shows reported to Billboard Boxscore.
Roptus is rolling out two other tours based on hit Televisa soaps this fall; one combines Eiza Gonzalez from "Lola . . . Érase Una Vez" and cast members from "Al Diablo Con Los Guapos." The other features the cast of "Fuego En La Sangre," with Pablo Montero and Ninel Conde.
