Since performing at SINGFest 8 years ago, Panic! At The Disco, led by mastermind Brendon Urie, is getting ready to return to Singapore and wow fans once again.
Panic released their 5th studio album, “Death Of A Bachelor”, back in January and it debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart, marking the band’s highest debut in over a decade. Despite the many changes in the American pop-punk group, fans can be rest assured that the Panic torch is still in good hands.
Ever since Panic’s other remaining co-founder, Spencer Smith, left the band last year, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Brendon Urie is very much the last man standing and doing things on his own terms. He is now joined by current tour musicians Dallon Weekes, Kenneth Harris, and Dan Pawlovich.
“I never considered dropping it. The reason members left in the past was because they didn’t want to be associated with Panic! At The Disco. That was never a question for me – I was always behind it. To me, Panic! symbolises something exciting I’ve never seen before and it gives me a world where I have no rules – I can do whatever I want and no one can tell me what to do,” Urie on why he kept the band’s name.
He added, “And it’s already a well-known band at this point – why would I change it? I get to tour, meet fans, keep it together and that’s something I’m so passionate about. I had a couple of fans tweet me saying “you should just go solo as Brendon At the Disco!” but I never really considered it. It’s basically a solo project now, but the name has always represented something more distant and exciting for me.”
So what can fans expect from a P!ATD show? “I’m always trying to change it. I like keeping that high energy and playing all the songs that have that feeling behind them, where you’re drenched in sweat at the end of the set – it’s like a workout video!” the 29-year-old singer told Gig Wise. Sounds like it’s gonna be a whole lot of fun!
