Panic! at the Disco 'Death of a Bachelor' Tour, London 2016 | Concert Review

7 January 2017

Panic! at the Disco is one of my all-time favourite bands. I'll admit, in high school I had the biggest crush on Brendon Urie - didn't we all, though? His voice is incredible, he had that perfect 'emo' look that was all the rage, his music sparked emotion and rebellion and was just so good.

Surprisingly though, I'd never been to a Panic! concert before - so when the opportunity presented itself to change that, I jumped at it. I was visiting my Aunt in London at the time, and had planned to meet up with some people I knew through YouTube. As it turned out, they were going to meet up at the concert and encouraged me to find a spare ticket being sold at face value (that's a massive thing in London apparently - no doubt I'd be paying double the retail price or more for a ticket back here in Australia) and meet up with them their. So, I did. Thirty pounds later (so cheap!) and I was off to Alexandra Palace - catching a tube from Covent Garden in peak hour to get there. 

L-R; Me, Lucia, Jon, Marisa, Kyle, Charli, Smay's friend*sorry*, Smay, Trudy.

After picking up my ticket, joining the world's longest queue (literally that thing took forever) and a short wait outside the food hall, I met up with the group and in we went. We got some food during the opening act and then made our way in about 15 minutes before Panic! came out - we obviously weren't front and centre, but it seems like something we all had in common is not wanting to be trapped in the mosh pit (I guess we're all getting too old for that)!

Oh. My. Gosh.

Panic! at the Disco live was amazing. 
Seriously perfection.

Brendon's voice is flawless, and every song sounded just as good as (if not better than) the studio version. That guy can sing. The set list consisted of a mix of songs from their newest album such as 'Don't Threaten Me With a Good Time', 'Emperor's New Clothes' and 'Death of a Bachelor', to timeless classics like 'Nine in the Afternoon', 'Miss Jackson', and of course 'I Write Sins Not Tragedies', all coming together in the explosive finale performance of 'Victorious'!

I seriously could not fault a thing about the performance. Brendon was full of energy - even doing multiple backflips and fun dance moves throughout while still hitting every note with perfect precision (and showing off a bit with just how high his voice could go). I, along with everyone else at the concert by the looks of it, especially enjoyed their performance of 'Bohemian Rhapsody', which is honestly my favourite cover of the song in existence.

In all, it was an incredible night, an incredible performance, and I can promise you that if you get the chance to see Panic! on tour (they'll be in Australia pretty soon too, FYI!) then you should definitely go - you won't be disappointed!

I also vlogged a decent chunk of footage from the night, so if you're interested in seeing that then definitely watch this video (skip to 04:08 for the Panic! footage)!

Have you seen Panic! at the Disco live? What did you think? Let me know!
