There was a Panic! Attack unleashed last night through a packed house at Oracle Arena in Oakland, as Panic! At The Disco “Prayed For The Wicked” with an amazing and entertaining production. The stage design, the lighting, the costumes, the band….EVERYTHING was spectacular and everyone’s “High Hopes” were fulfilled!
With a 25 song set list and 3 song encore, Panic! performed songs old and new, from their current smash hit “High Hopes” to their signature tune “ I Write Sins, Not Tragedies”, each one getting the audience up, on their feet, singing and dancing.
One of the highlights of the night was when Brendon Urie played an unforgettable cover of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”, which had the whole crowd participating in one giant sing along, flashlights waving in the air.
During the song “Girls/Girls/Boys”, the audience engaged by holding up colored hearts to their phone lights, creating a rainbow wave throughout the arena. The performance ended with Brendon Urie dripping in rainbow flags and him saying “If you’ve ever felt like you’ve been bullied, you’re not loved or don’t belong…well you belong here, because we love you!”
Before the show, we were able to meet up with some of our lucky winners who had the chance to go backstage and meet Panic! These real fans were so grateful and appreciative, some were brought to tears, but everyone was smiling. Our King of The Clouds VIP Experience Winner told us “99.7 This is a dream come true!”.
