This past Tuesday, Panic! At The Disco brought their Death of a Bachelor Tour to The University of Pittsburgh’s Petersen Events Center, and they did not disappoint! The band absolutely stunned with hits including “This Is Gospel”, “Don’t Threaten Me With A Good Time”, and “Victorious”.
Two of our team members attended the sold-out concert, and it sure seems to have lived up to the hype. Check out our reviews below and relive this amazing night all over again!

I closed out the month of February on a very high note on Tuesday! Panic! At The Disco’s stage production was impressive as usual, with everything from pyrotechnics to a rotating piano platform in the middle of the sold-out crowd. Lead singer Brendon Urie’s charisma and energy remains unmatched, and his amazing vocal skills borders on the ridiculous. Seriously – how does he manage to consistently put on such an incredible performance??
During their performance of “Girls/Girls/Boys”, the band made a point to display a very overt message of equality and acceptance specifically directed toward the LGBTQ community (as the lyrics proclaim, “love is not a choice”). Of course, no Panic! At The Disco concert would be complete without “I Write Sins Not Tragedies”.
It’s great to see that 13 years in, Panic! At The Disco has managed to adapt and grow into a musical powerhouse that continues to produce impressive new music even to this day. Not many acts that have been around for so long have been able to maintain such massive interest in their new material, and I’m sure Panic! and Urie have much much more where this came from.

I have yet to miss a Panic! At the Disco show over the last 5 years and this year would be no different. Every performance is out of this world and never fails to blow the crowd away! From raining fire to streamer cannons, Panic! At the Disco pulled out all the stops on this tour! The band performed over 23 songs including a new compilation of 4 different songs from their older albums. As in usual Brendon Urie fashion, he did his infamous back flip off of a set of stairs during “Miss Jackson,” which had the crowd screaming at the top of their lungs.
About halfway through his performance, Brendon Urie came out to an extended stage featuring a piano that rose up and spun over the crowd. Concert goers had cutout colored hearts to hold over the lights of their phones during “This is Gospel” and “Girls/Girls/Boys”. Urie also walked back to the stage through the crowd taking pictures with fans and giving them hugs, making the concert that much more personal.
I’ve been following this band since they started in 2004, and it blows my mind to see how much they have grown in those 13 years. Their fan base has grown and crosses multiple demographics with their wildly popular music. Between Brendon Urie’s crazy vocals and the band’s insane stage presence, Panic! At the Disco doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon!
