Panic! At the Disco

with MisterWives, Saint Motel

Amway Center; Orlando, FL • April 13, 2017

It was a bright and humid Friday afternoon in the good ol’ sunshine state. Fans were swarming from left to right wearing Panic! At The Disco merch. As people lined up to enter the Amway Center, you could hear Panic’s music playing from every corner, which was a little disorientating.

The show opened with Saint Motel, an indie rock/pop band from Los Angeles, California. (The true sunshine state.) Their sound was very unique, something I haven’t heard much of before. Unexpectedly, they played a cover of “When I’m Sixty Four” by The Beatles — a favorite most people could jam to. Playing a good mix between new and old songs, the crowd was thoroughly pleased, as was I.

I could swear MisterWives blew the roof off the Amway Center with the high energy they sparked. Opening with “Pure Imagination”, made famous by Gene Wilder, and going straight into their own song, “Imagination Infatuation”, vocalist Mandy Lee bursts with energy while tapping on her tambourine. Actively interacting with the audience, Lee still hits every note while sounding like a raspy angel. They truly shook me to the core.

The production Panic! At The Disco put into this tour was truly spectacular. I have never witnessed a concert of this sort in my whole life (and I’ve been to many concerts.) There were confetti, streamers, and pyrotechnics throughout their set. As Brendon Urie reached unbelievably high notes, the crowd shouted every lyric.

My favorite moments were during two songs, though. During “This Is Gospel”, Urie showed up on a pedestal in the middle of the crowd, with a piano on it. Said pedestal was slowly lifted up while simultaneously rotating. Confetti was released from the ceiling which made it look magical. As the crowd sang along, it was almost to a whisper. It was such a chilling moment. My second favorite moment was during “Girls/Girls/Boys” where fan-made hearts were shining through phone flashlights, creating a glowing pride flag in the arena. There was so much love in that venue, I could hardly believe it. Ending the night with “Victorious”, Panic! soon left the arena whilst taking my breath away.
