While Panic! Panic! At The Disco is a must-see band when it comes to live performances. Their over-the-top style makes it easy to see them multiple times. During their recent Pray For The Wicked tour, Urie could be seen flying through venues while playing the piano as part of his impressive cover of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”. The setlist is typically a mix of new songs and old favorites with “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” being saved for the encore. Other favorites likely to be performed include “New Perspective,” “Nine In The Afternoon,” “Hallelujah” and “The Ballad of Mona Lisa.” Popular covers may also be mixed into the setlist.
His words about loving whoever you want to love eased the pain I’ve been feeling from the Pulse Night Club shooting, and the meanings behind each and every one of his songs allowed me to connect with Brendon on a more personal level.
After the line-up was reshuffled, the influence of the synth-pop revival was felt on Vices & Virtues (2011), and the saving grace of rocking moments like Ballad of Mona Lisa was not enough to rescue a project that increasingly veered towards the derivative. Singer and multi-instrumentalist Brendon Urie towered over the proceedings to the point that this was becoming his solo project.
Founded by childhood friends Ryan Ross, Spencer Smith, Brent Wilson and Brendon Urie, Panic! at the Disco recorded its first demos while its members were in high school. Shortly after, the band recorded and released its debut studio album, A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out (2005). Popularized by the lead single, “I Write Sins Not Tragedies”, the album was certified double platinum in the US. In 2006, founding bassist Brent Wilson was fired from the band during an extensive world tour, and subsequently replaced by Jon Walker.
As a three-piece, Urie, Smith, and Weekes recorded and released the band’s fourth studio album, Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die! , in 2013. Prior to the release of the album, Smith unofficially left the band due to health and drug-related issues, leaving Urie and Weekes as the remaining members. The duo recruited guitarist Kenneth Harris and drummer Dan Pawlovich as touring musicians for live performances.

The multi-talented Brendon Urie is the only guarantee. He will provide the lead vocals and will likely be seen playing a variety of instruments at each concert. However, he isn’t a one-man show. The other members are tour musicians that are subject to change at any time. Band members usually are consistent throughout a tour, but that isn’t always the case.

I knew Panic! At The Disco would put on an amazing performance, and they did not disappoint! This was my first time at the Golden 1 Center and I was blown away by everything the venue had to offer. The staff were all incredibly kind and helpful from start to finish. The venue was spacious enough that I never felt crammed in, even when everyone was rushing to get in to their seats. The seats we had were better than we expected from looking at the seating chart. Food and drink were priced high, but that’s to be expected at an event like this.
On June 29, Panic! At The Disco will perform live on the Plaza as part of the 2018 Citi Concert Series on TODAY on NBC. Watch the band’s thrilling performances of Say Amen (Saturday Night)” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon HERE, The Ellen DeGeneres Show HERE, and The Voice HERE.
One of pop’s most exciting live acts, Panic! At the Disco has long commanded stages around the world with their vibrant, passionate performances. The band first stepped onto a stage in 2005 after recording their debut album, ‘A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out.’ They proved to be even more dynamic on stage than in the studio, and began a long round of touring by 2006, including their Nothing Rhymes with Circus tour, which involved an elaborate setup of dance numbers and skits. As each release has become more ambitious, so have their live shows. Frontman Brendon Urie remains a magnetic leader, playing both the untouchable rock star and the showstopping theatrical performer. You may even be lucky enough to see him effortlessly pull off Queen’s mega-classic “Bohemian Rhapsody,” which he performed during the Death of a Bachelor tour and Pray for the Wicked tour.
To shun that in favour of turning Panic! At the Disco into a solo project is one of the most truly disheartening moments in the history of the band — and it reflects in the two albums Urie has made on his own since that decision.
A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out” is home to one of the band’s most popular songs, I Write Sins Not Tragedies,” which won the highly coveted Video of the Year award at the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards.
The new album, released on Friday 22nd June, comes off the heels of their critically acclaimed platinum fifth album Death Of A Bachelor which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Chart and was nominated for Best Rock Album at the 2017 GRAMMY® Awards.
When Brendon took a role in the Broadway production of Kinky Boots, it made a weird kind of sense, and that sense of pure showmanship has returned with him to his day job: Panic! At The Disco might not make much sense on paper currently, but there’s a reason why they’ve graduated to arena status (this is the first of two nights at The O2) on album six, and they have a frontman who looks like he could command any stage on earth tonight.
Continuing their artistic (?) decline, Panic at the Disco released one of the worst albums of the year, Too Weird To Live Too Rare To Die (2013). not only bombastic for the sake of pomp but also utterly predictable to the last note, as if a computer had been programmed to produce your average pop hit from a database of hits. Another way to see the album is as a speculation around the single Miss Jackson, probably the only song that deserved to be recorded.
Take a Vacation!, while faring better out of the two, could never confidently step out of the shadow of the bands it was mirroring. As for Vices & Virtues, Urie was evidently too busy with the notion of rebooting Panic! with a capital ! that he lost sight of what made the band a unique prospect in the first place.
Panic! At The Disco began in 2004 as a quartet, but have steadily diminished in size. When drummer Spencer Smith left the band in April 2015, Urie found himself faced with writing and recording a new album as the only remaining band member. Given his Sinatra-meets-Queen vision, his choice of collaborator seems odd at first sight: young musician and producer Jake Sinclair is best-known for his work with rock and pop acts like Weezer, Fall Out Boy, P!nk, Taylor Swift, Sia and 5 Seconds Of Summer.
Influenced by 1960s rock bands the Beatles, the Zombies and the Beach Boys, and preceded by the hit single, “Nine in the Afternoon”, the band’s second studio album, Pretty. Odd. (2008), marked a significant departure from the sound of the band’s debut, and ultimately led to the departure of guitarist and principal songwriter Ryan Ross and bassist Jon Walker, who favored the band’s new direction. The duo subsequently formed a new band, the Young Veins, leaving Brendon Urie and Spencer Smith as the sole remaining members of Panic! at the Disco.
The reality is that the idea of Panic! At the Disco getting its mojo back on Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die was — to add a further layer to its title — too good to be true.

Brendon Urie is such a talented individual. His writing talents, performance skills, beautiful soul, alight smile, and wonderful presence absolutely made my night. Panic! At the Disco is a must-see. I had the time of my life. Thank you so much, Brendon.
It was made after Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz signed them to his label, Decaydance, after watching them play in their garage. Having never done a live gig at the time, and having only recently stopped being a blink-182 cover band, Panic! were essentially some sort of test-tube baby. Consider it a hybrid beast born out of teenage restlessness.
