Panic! At The Disco

On 2/4/14, I had the chance to see Panic! At the Disco for the second time in my life, at the soon to be closed Roseland Ballroom. I was armed with an iPhone instead of a camera for this concert, but I was excited to have general admission pit tickets, instead of nosebleeds at the Barclays Center that I had when they toured with Fall Out Boy on their arena tour. After waiting in line in the cold for about two hours, the show opened with the band X Ambassadors, a local New York band whose lead singer made creative use of a loop machine and a saxophone. Next was The Colourist, a four-piece group with a male-female dual vocal combination who brought a lively set, slowing it down near the end with an acoustic number. At long last Panic! At the Disco were on, the lineup consisting of only one original member, lead singer Brendon Urie. They played several crowd favorites from the classic A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out, along with several tracks from their two newer albums, Vices & Virtues, and Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die!. The stage setup and lighting were phenomenal, and Urie brought his signature dynamic stage performance, never staying in one place for very long, playing piano, drums, and guitar throughout the set. Veterans and new fans alike all left thoroughly content, eager and awaiting their next return to the city.
