Seeing Panic! At The Disco In Concert Was A Religious Experience

The tickets were well worth the price to see Brendon Urie live and up close.

Seeing Panic! At The Disco In Concert Was A Religious Experience

On July 17th, I witnessed Panic! At the Disco's Pray For The Wicked tour at the United Center in Chicago. I went with my friend from elementary school, Jessie, who had been a fan of them since their first album (that's right, she's a true fan). I personally have been an avid listener since freshman or sophomore year of high school (fake fan).

Jessie and I bought the tickets as soon as they went on sale. We got floor seats so close to the stage that I could almost see the sweat on Brendon Urie's face. We arrived at the venue right as the first opener, Hayley Kiyoko, started. She did very well, and I also liked seeing her because she's very gay. Like, really gay. She spent half her time on stage talking about all the cute girls in the audience, so I could really relate to her.

Next was ARIZONA, a band that I was not too keen on. I'm pretty sure I was on my phone for their whole set. All I really remember is that the bass was so loud, I couldn't feel my heart beat. Once they ended, crew members came out and started setting the stage. After about 20 minutes, a ten minute timer appeared on the screens and everyone in the stadium went wild. As the counter went down, the anticipation built.

When the countdown reached zero, the band slowly rose on platforms out of the stage. The intro to (F*ck A) Silver Lining started playing, but Brendon Urie was still nowhere to be seen - that is, until he skyrocketed out of the stage five feet into the air and burst into the chorus. I don't know how he did it, but my personal theory is he had a trampoline under the stage.

So this was a pretty phenomenal start. We had Brendon Urie flying through the air, and great f*cking music. I sang along as loud as my lungs would let me.

The whole concert was astounding, but some of the highlights included:

Brendon Urie himself coming down to the floor and hugging fans (I was A FOOT AWAY FROM HIM!)

Brendon Urie flying above the crowd on a platform with a piano

Brendon Urie doing a wicked drum solo and then backflipping off the platform onto the stage

Brendon Urie playing tons of his old songs, which was great for me since I never got to see those live!

All in all, it was two hours of watching an amazingly passionate man sing his heart out. It was one of the most entertaining concerts I've been to, and I can't wait for him to release another album so I can see him again.

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.

In no particular order, I would like to demonstrate a little culture about the ways Christmas is celebrated or is not celebrated throughout five different religions.
