Panic! At The Disco Play a Gloriously Nostalgic Show in Los Angeles

From an emo scene kid to top of the pop charts to the Broadway stage, Brendon Urie has done it all. It seemed like only a few years ago that we all were rocking out to A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out on a freshly burned mix CD. Fast forward sixteen years — we’ve seen the band transform through many phases, ultimately ending up as front man Brendon Urie’s solo project with a more dynamic pop sound. We set aside our decades-old “too cool for pop music” demons and have fully embraced Panic’s powerhouse anthem producing factory.

With an extensive stage setup and stunning visual effects production, Panic’s stop on the Viva Las Vengeance Tour last night was one to remember. The stage extended onto the floor — wrapping around to create a continuous catwalk with a small pit of fans in the center. Urie slowly emerged from beneath the stage to a wave of smoke, pyrotechnics and an arena full of glass-shattering applause. The set began with “Say Amen (Saturday Night)” followed by “Hey Look Ma, I Made It.” Next was (my personal favorite), “Don’t Threaten Me With A Good Time” — the generously long setlist continued through songs of all eras, followed by a front-to-back total performance of Viva Las Vengeance. Hearing an album live in its entirety is rare these days, but where else would we expect that level of satisfaction other than a Panic! At The Disco show?

Concluding the live album performances, additional tracks such a “Nine In the Afternoon” and “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” sent the audience into high-speed race down memory lane. Wrapping up with stadium-ready anthems “Victorious” and “High Hopes,” this show hit the nail on the head for both veteran fans as well as some of Panic’s youngest, most recent fans. Urie’s live vocal performance is undeniably an experience no one should ever miss. His enthusiasm and crowd interaction have remained genuine through the years, one of the reasons Panic has always had such a devoted fanbase.
