Panic! At The Disco – Commodore Ballroom – January 15, 2014
On tour in promotion of their latest album “Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die!”, the Las Vegas rockers had the Commodore Ballroom hopping on Wednesday night. A not-quite full house excitedly sang and danced throughout the 80 minutes show.
The dapper, suited & booted band’s set covered tunes from all of their 4 studio albums; “Miss Jackson”, “Ballad Of Mona Lisa”, “Nine In The Afternoon” and their massive hit “I Write Sins Not Tragedies”.
High energy lights, multiple LED video screens and smoke machines created a big concert experience but the small Commodore Ballroom kept it intimate. The energy of the band and audience fed off of each other, building throughout the night. The show culminated in the exciting encore, as the shirtless lead-singer Brendon Urie returned to the stage smoking a joint extolling the virtues of BC pot, before breaking into “I Write Sins…” joined by almost the entire audience singing along.
The mostly sold-out tour continues throughout North America until mid-February before jumping across the Pacific to Australia for spring.
