REVIEW: Panic! At The Disco Brings Energy To The Q


On the second leg of the Pray for the Wicked tour, Panic! At The Disco along with openers Betty Who and Two Feet stopped at Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena on Jan. 30.


Betty Who made the crowd want to dance and start a party, while Two Feet filled the Q with his bluesy guitar playing.


With a 28 song set, Panic! At The Disco managed to give a mixture old favorites and new hits from his recent record, Pray For The Wicked. Starting off the set with the single "(Fuck A) Silver Lining," lead vocalist Brendon Urie jumped onto the stage from underneath it, as the song kicked in with fun-filled lyrics, "Fuck a silver lining/Fuck a silver lining/'Cause only gold is hot enough, hot enough."

With Urie's high energy, the set continues with Death of a Bachelor's single, "Don't Threaten Me with a Good Time" and Vices & Virtues' fan-favorite "Ready to Go (Get Me Out of My Mind)."


Urie has an amazing skill of hitting those high, falsetto notes just right. While The Amazing Beebo made an on the screen appearance, the audience screams as "Hey Look Ma, I Made It" kicks in with the lyrics "All my life, been hustling'/And tonight is my appraisal/'Cause I'm a hooker sellin' songs."

As the set continues, the stage goes black and Urie appears from what seemed like out of nowhere playing the 2008 Pretty. Odd. classic "Nine in the Afternoon" on piano. Gliding into the anthem "This is Gospel," reminded the crowd that it's okay to have "the fear of falling apart."


Slowing the set down with "Dying in LA," Urie soars with his piano around the arena. With the cover of "The Greatest Show," and mentioned growing up that he always wanted to be best friends with Hugh Jackman. Hitting those high notes once again, during "High Hopes" in the lyrics, "Had to have high, high hopes for a living/Shooting for the stars when I couldn't make a killing" echo in arena.


Before the encore, P!ATD plays their rendition of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody." During the final songs, the audience received their last feel of throwback with "I Write Sins Not Tragedies." With his last burst of energy, the show ends with the lyrics "All my friends were glorious/Tonight we are victorious," in P!ATD's single, "Victorious."
