In honor of their fifth studio album, Panic! At The Disco named their current tour Death of a Bachelor and have brought the show to venues all over the nation, including the UCCU Center.
Despite being on tour for almost four months, Panic! brought their A-game to the show. With fire spraying from the stage and from above, glitter falling from the sky, band members doing backflips and big confetti explosions to start and end the show, it was an energetic and big production.
The relatively young crowd kept up with the volume of the music even with their singing and screams. Lead singer Brendon Urie made sure that his band’s performance was a non-stop party for fans and himself.
Panic! performed their hit songs Death of a Bachelor, Hallelujah and Kill Tonight. After Urie’s talented drum solo during Kill Tonight, the band interwove 30-second covers of Rihanna’s B*tch Better Have My Money and Bruno Mars’ 24K Magic in their song.
While performing their hit song Death of a Bachelor, Brendon Urie walked from the back of the arena to the stage through the crowd. During the walk, he interacted with fans. Once Urie got back to the stage, he was so overwhelmed with the fans appreciation that he missed a few notes of the next song.
“During our death walk, during Death of a Bachelor… that’s what we call it, I see your faces and I feel your hugs. … I missed some notes because I am so grateful,” said Urie. “You guys inspire me.”
Before ending the night with their last handful of songs, Urie turned to the audience and thanked them for their dedication and support over the last decade.
“Panic! has been performing for 13 years… thank you guys and I love you,” said Urie.
The Death of a Bachelor tour was opened by American indie pop bands Saint Motel and Misterwives. Both were well recepted by the crowd and instantly became fans favorites.
Lead singer of Misterwives, Mandy Lee, was especially enthusiastic and inspiring throughout the performance. Lee made sure that everyone felt welcome at the concert and that anyone in the crowd could relate to their music.
“No matter your race, religion, or gender, you are accepted here,” said Lee. “[I want] to remind you all that no matter what you are going through, you are not alone … and that is the beauty of music.”
