As Brendon Urie (aka Panic! At The Disco) continues his Viva Las Vengeance Tour, they performed Friday night in Chicago, playing the United Center.
The massive show saw support from Betty Who and Jake Wesley Rogers, as the Brendon Urie-fronted band continued a stunning, 40-date arena trek, which included stops in Detroit, Toronto, New York, San Francisco, Denver, and of course, Las Vegas. He is touring in support of his new album Viva Las Vengeance, which was released in August.
The Chicago show saw Urie backed by a 12-piece band, including horns and strings, featuring a number of songs from the new record, including the title track, “Middle of a Breakup,” “Sugar Soaker” and “Don’t Let The Light Go Out,” as well as hits "High Hopes," “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” and “Emperor's New Clothes.”
Panic! At The Disco is donating $1 from every ticket sold on the tour to the Highest Hopes Foundation, which will be working with organizations like Everytown (which aims to end gun violence), SisterSong (dedicated to reproductive justice for women of color) and GLSEN (which seeks to end discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity) to distribute the money in the hopes of furthering each of their missions. Additionally, Live Nation will also be matching the donation from the entire tour, dollar for dollar.
