Panic! At The Disco will be making its way to Philippine shores again on October 20 at the Mall of Asia Arena. Although it may be a little too late if you haven't heard yet, because tickets are already sold out.
If you were able to watch the recent Video Music Awards, it did give a taste of what it's like to see them live. Brendon Urie and the rest of the band just went all out in their performance of "High Hopes," one of the songs in their latest album Pray for the Wicked, which is also the title of their tour this year.
Now, this got us even more excited to see Panic! here in Manila and tear the roof off. Back in 2008, they held a concert at the Big Dome, and were part of the 2016 In The Mix! music festival. We're sure ten, or even two, years makes a lot of difference. So, FHM took a look back at their most recent album tour and handpicked some songs that we're dying to hear this year live when Panic! comes to town.
'This Is Gospel'
Probably the most popular song of their fourth album, Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!, "This Is Gospel" is one of those songs that get stuck in your head, and when you think you can sing it in public, you shriek.
'Death of a Bachelor'
Classy and sleek, "Death of a Bachelor," we think, is about Brendon's marriage to Sarah Orzechowski. Like, the song is about his bachelor life "dying" because he has a new life as a husband to Sarah. Got it? Good.
'Emperor's New Clothes'
Most likely inspired by the short Danish tale of the same name, "Emperor's New Clothes" just gives you what you want out of Panic!: unapologetic, unadulterated, and uncontainable music. It kind of sounds like a pop-rock musical on Broadway.
Of course, this is a cover of one of the most memorable songs of all time by Queen. With Freddie Mercury's group serving as one of the band's influences, no doubt Panic! has the best cover of this iconic rock ballad. Brendon seamlessly marries his distinguishable vocal prowess with an updated version of the Queen's rough instrumentals.
Possibly the catchiest song of their last record. You can't help singing along to its chorus, which is what you're doing right now while reading this. At one point, it could've been a millennial anthem.
