Concert Review: Panic! At The Disco @ SOLD OUT Show at Barclays Center

Panic! At The Disco is on the “Pray For The Wicked Tour” across North America. Accompanying Panic! At The Disco on tour is Two Feet and Betty Who. The show I attended was January 16, 2019 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. The show was sold out (with the capacity maxing out at 19,000.)

This is my first time seeing a concert at Barclays Center. I’ve been to hockey games inside the venue so seeing the venue change from sporting event to concert venue was very cool!

I had no idea where I was sitting because I received the tickets as a gift for my birthday, so I was excited, not only to figure out where I was sitting, but for the show. The seats I had were amazing!

Prior to the show, I visited Panic! At The Disco’s pop up shop.

I got a keychain of Panic! At The Disco’s logo, a long sleeve shirt, and a tee shirt with Brooklyn’s logo (see the tweet here to see the shirt.) Here are some photos of me in front of the pop up shop with my merchandise and a picture of me with a poster of Brendon Urie.

The first performer was Betty Who. I’ve heard of Betty Who from Becca Kufrin, the Bachelorette. She praises the artist, so I was excited to hear her music and see her performance. She had a lot of music to dance to which was fun. I’m definitely going to check out her music after her performance. Betty Who said she sold out the Knitting Factory a few years back and was amazed she was playing a sold out show at Barclays Center.

Two Feet took the stage next. I’m familiar with a few songs from Two Feet. I was impressed to see that Two Feet sounds the same live as he did on an MP3. Two Feet’s style is mostly vocals, guitar, and unique instrumentals. I enjoyed the fact he shared he was from New York and never imagined playing a show in Barclays. He mentioned that he messes up a lot, but enjoys the support he gets when he performs which I felt showed his humbleness.

I feel like both Two Feet and Betty Who complimented Panic! At The Disco in different ways. Betty Who was more pop/ dance while Two Feet was more alternative and unique with instrumentals. 10 minutes before Panic! At The Disco took the stage, a timer was put up to set the anticipation. After patiently waiting, Panic! At The Disco took the stage.

Panic! At The Disco’s performance (c) Victoria Onorato @ovictoriamedia

Here is the setlist:

  1. (Fuck A) Silver Lining
  2. Don’t Threaten Me With A Good Time
  3. Ready To Go (Get Me Out Of My Mind)
  4. Hey Look Ma, I Made It
  5. LA Devotee
  6. Hallelujah
  7. Crazy = Genius
  8. The Ballad of Mona Lisa
  9. Nine in the Afternoon
  10. One of the Drunks
  11. Casual Affair
  12. Vegas Lights
  13. Dancing’s Not a Crime
  14. This Is Gospel
  15. Death Of A Bachelor
  16. I Can’t Make You Love Me (Bonnie Raitt Cover)
  17. Dying in LA
  18. The Greatest Show (from “The Greatest Showman: Reimagined”)
  19. Girls/Girls/ Boys
  20. King of the Clouds
  21. High Hopes
  22. Miss Jackson
  23. Roaring 20s
  24. Bohemian Rhapsody (Queen Cover)
  25. Emperor’s New Clothes
  26. Say Amen (Saturday Night) *ENCORE*
  27. I Write Sins Not Tragedies *ENCORE*
  28. Victorious *ENCORE*

The setlist incorporated a lot of P!ATD’s hits as well as new songs. It was awesome getting to see people of different ages singing along to all of P!ATD’s songs. The only thing I wish was different was that Brendon Urie added were a few oldies like “Time To Dance,” “Collarful,” “But It’s Better If You Do,” and more to the setlist. See some photos from the show here.

This is my fourth time seeing Panic! At The Disco in concert (The last P!ATD show I attended was with Weezer in 2016.) Brendon Urie of Panic! At The Disco is an incredible performer. He started the show popping out of the bottom of the stage and since then kept the audience on their toes. From back flips off the stage, to seeing him drumming, and at one point playing piano and performing on a platform floating across Barclays Center, it’s impressive to see how incredibly talented he is. Most bands and artist play at most 20 songs in a setlist, but Brendon Urie performed 28 and his vocal range is unlike any artist in this decade. Brendon Urie kept stating how thankful he was not only for us to be at the show, but for us existing. He has positive messages he shared throughout the night, and it’s outstanding to see a performer for almost 15 years keep such a great following.

The show gave me chills, kept a smile on my face, had me singing along, and enjoying every song performed. Seeing Panic! At The Disco perform to a sold out show at Barclays Center was outstanding. The first time I saw Panic! At The Disco perform was at The Paramount in 2011, and each show I’ve seen from Panic! At The Disco has only been better from there. If you have yet to see Panic! At The Disco live, I HIGHLY recommend seeing them once in your life.

Rock on, stay humble, and be positive!

Milestones 2014-2019 We started this band as a bunch of 17 year olds, we didn’t even know each other to begin with. We all just shared this vision of touring the world and working as hard as we could to get there. Like all bands who strive towards this, we gave up our jobs, some friends, some relationships and missed out on so much. It was all worth it. But for us, breaking up as a band has been a reality for a long time. Some of us would like to pursuit new dreams, others would just like a break from this for a while. Either way, this was a joint decision that we feel was the right move for us as human beings and as professionals. We value our mental health and professional integrity at absolute paramount so this is something we all unanimously decided was the only step forward. We’d like to thank everybody who’s ever worked with us – past and present – for any support and opportunities they gave us. We want to thank anybody who let us stay on their floor, gave us food – without you guys the music industry would be darkened and it’s your gratitude that keeps the upcoming artists alive, your grace inspired us everyday to be better people. Mostly, we’d like to thank all of you who ever came to a show, supported our tiny band, sang along, bought a shirt – we hope your memories with your friends are just as special as ours are with one another. You believed in something we did and that’s a blessing only few experience. So thank you. We’ve been fortunate enough to play all across the world and share moments we dreamt of as kids; and in the process became brothers. We’ve learnt a lot and grown a whole lot more. We’ll be playing 2 final shows to bid farewell to 5 years of our lives and celebrate every moment we had with each other and with you. We’ll be joined by Luke Rainsford & SHADED, two of the most exciting acts emerging from the U.K. right now. We’d love for you to join us and do this with us one more time. Tickets will be available on Wednesday 31st October (link in bio), so be quick! We will not be adding any more shows. These are the scars that we made into art, Milestones x
