I was fortunate enough to have see Panic! At The Disco perform with Weezer at the Nikon at Jones Beach Theater yesterday. Prior to the show, I met Panic!
At The Disco. I got three guitar picks (one from Brendon, one from Dallon and one from Kenny) and got two photos with Panic! At The Disco.
Next week, I’ll post the photo with them. Meeting Panic! At The Disco seems liked such a surreal experience. I’ve been a big fan of Panic! At The Disco since A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out, and they’ve evolved so much as a group. If you haven’t already, check out their album Death Of A Bachelor.
After the meet and greet, the opening band was Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness, and they had a light, whimsical vibe to their music. Andrew McMahon was walking around venue singing and having cameras following him. You might recognize the name Andrew McMahon if you listened to Jack’s Mannequin. Andrew McMahon sang “Dark Blue” last night; it was awesome to see live.
After a 30 minute intermission in between sets, Panic! At The Disco took the stage. Now, I’ve seen Panic! At The Disco twice prior to this concert. I saw Panic! At The Disco perform on October 30, 2011 at The Paramount and again on August 5, 2014 at The Theater in Madison Square Garden. Both times I’ve seen Panic! At The Disco, I was blown away. Brendon Urie is an unbelievable vocalist.
Panic! At The Disco’s setlist was:
- Don’t Threaten Me With A Good Time
- Vegas Lights
- The Ballad of Mona Lisa
- Time To Dance
- Emperor’s New Clothes
- Girls/ Girls/ Boys
- Ready To Go (Get Me Out Of My Mind)
- Nine In The Afternoon
- Miss Jackson
- Golden Days
- Bohemian Rhapsody
- LA Devotee
- Death Of A Bachelor
- I Write Sins Not Tragedies
- This Is Gospel
Seeing Panic! At The Disco live is the best thing one can do. Every time I’ve seen Panic! At The Disco, I’ve always had the greatest time. There’s something about how spectacular the energy is at a Panic! At The Disco show. Brendon Urie won the 2014 award of Best Vocalist at the APMAs; it is certainly well deserved. Brendon has an impeccable range as a vocalist, he has an excellent stage presence and is a well- rounded singer. Brendon dedicated “This Is Gospel” to Spencer Smith, who is sober from prescription medication and alcohol addiction for two years. Unfortunately, I was unable to stay to see Weezer but I had the chance to hear them as I left. Weezer sounded really good. It’s safe to say that the Panic! At The Disco show was an outstanding concert.
Panic! At The Disco will be touring with Weezer all summer long. The tour began on June 10th at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavillion located in The Woodlands, Texas and will end August 6th at the Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre in Irvine, California. In January, Panic! At The Disco will be in Australia.
In other news, Yellowcard announced last week that they are breaking up. They’re playing all summer at Vans Warped Tour and having a farewell tour. Also, Blink- 182’s album California is released today. Next week I will be going to Warped Tour on July 9th, so there will be a post up either Saturday evening or on Sunday. Until then…
Rock on, stay humble, and be positive
