Hello yes, it’s been quite a while, but I am here once again. I’m here to tell you all about the amazing concert I experienced last week, Panic! at the Disco’s Death of a Bachelor tour. Let’s get started shall we?
Let’s start with the first opening act, one of my long time favorite bands, Saint Motel. Saint Motel is an indie pop band based out of Los Angeles and gives us all a refreshing taste of genuinely good music. From a set list that ranged from their songs Sweet Talk to Destroyer and their popular hit, My Type, it was guaranteed to be a great time.
The set was accompanied with amazing visuals that were reminiscent of classic television. With the black and white film and the vintage vibes, it was a very aesthetically pleasing performance. I will most definitely be seeing them the next time they’re in Georgia.
This brings us to our second opening act, and one of my personal favorites, Misterwives. After having seen them on the “Our Own House Tour” , and then later on the “Scrapbook Tour”, I was more than excited to see them for a third time, and let me tell you they did not disappoint.Their setlist consisted of both new and old song featuring those such as Reflections, Our Own House, Machine and Oh Love. The overall performance radiated positivity throughout the audience and I can’t wait to see Misterwives again.
Now, onto the headliner, Panic! at the Disco.
I saw Panic! at the Disco for the first time last year when they went on tour with Weezer, and they left a memorable impression to say the least. Having been a fan of Panic! at the Disco since their “Vices and Virtues” days, I wasn’t gonna pass up on an opportunity to see them once again.
The night started with something I’ve seen no other artist do before, a countdown. Introduced with the playing of Secrets by the Weeknd, my friends and I waited anxiously as the clock counted down from 10:00 to 0:00.
When the clock finally reached 0:00, we we’re met with the all too familiar introduction of Don’t Threaten Me With A Good Time, a great beginning if I do say so myself. After the performance was completed, and the audience was at a high level of energy, the center stage back drop lit up and said “Welcome To the Death of A Bachelor Tour.”
The night was filled with a setlist that featured a medley of old favorites such as The Only Difference Between Martyrdom and Suicide Is Press Coverage, Camisado, But It’s Better If You Do, Nine in the Afternoon, Ready to Go and of course, I Write Sins Not Tragedies.
We also heard come current songs, such as: Hallelujah, Golden Days, LA Devotee, a beautiful piano version of This Is Gospel and title song Death of A Bachelor. We even heard a couple of covers such as Movin’ Out and a classic favorite Bohemian Rhapsody.
However, I think the highlight of the night had to be near the end of the set where Brendon gave a beautiful speech about inclusion, equality and that no matter what happens he will always stand by us nt, as both an ally and a friend. The song Girls/Girls/Boys began to play and the audience lifted up the paper hearts we had received at the beginning of the night and proceeded to make the color of the pride flag across the venue. It was a moment of camaraderie, inclusion, true beauty, and shows how passionate one fan base can be about coming together.
Panic! at the Disco is a band that gives an impeccable show and helps in bring a sense of togetherness along with providing an uplifting energy to everyone that attends. If you get the chance to see them, I suggest you do, you won’t regret it.
