Panic! At the Disco: USA (Orlando), November 8, 2006
The audience went crazy when Panic! came out. They played every song off the album and did two cover songs that were really good.

Sound: Brendon may be thrashed by music critics for his singing live, but his prefromance was great in ny eyes. He hit a couple of really high notes (especially the ending of I Write Sins Not Tragedies). They had a cellist there and a piano that Brendon played. I'm not really sure what other instruments were used. The only reason I gave this a 9 was because of the quality of the sound. The place was a basketball area and the acoustics weren't meant for concerts. The sound was slightly distorted because of this but it wasn't distractig from the preformance. It was hard to hear them over the crowd that was singing along. // 9

Perfomance: The audience went crazy when Panic! came out. The crowd was actually more college kids than 13 year old girls. They played every song off the album and did two cover songs that were really good. First they did Killer Queen by Queen, which happens to be one of my favorite Queen songs. Brendon played guitar on this track. Later in the show, they played Eleanor Rigby by the Beatles. Brendon just sat down for this song. It was actually pretty funny because only a few people knew the words to the songs, which allowed me to finally hear what was going on. They closed the show with Build God, Then We'll Talk. It was a great closer, especially with the cello solo (me being a cello player, I found it very nice to hear a mainstream rock band to use a cellist in more than a ballad). As can be expected from such a showy band, Panic! had many props and other theatrical materials to help make the show stand out. The back drop was hidden behind a curtain during the two opening acts. Spencer, the drummer, was set up on top of a platform. The cellist also had a platform off to the side. There was a cage by Spencer that a girl was put in during one of the songs. During Nails For Breakfast, Tacks for Snacks, there was a little show put on involving a woman in a straight jacket and some docters trying to restrain her. For I Write Sins, Not Tragedies, a bride and groom on stilts danced around. Through all the songs there were dancers. There were 2 screens on either side of the arena for people farther back to see. // 10

Overall Impression: The concert was in Orlando, Florida, that place where Disney World is, at the UCF Arena on November 8, 2006. Jack's Mannequin opened first (they are also a notible band). I personaly, enjoyed Jack's Mannequin's preformance, even though Tommy Lee was not on drums. Bloc Party played after them, however I didn't enjoy them, I couldn't understand the singer! The highlit of the show was the drumline. Everyone in the band formed a drum line and played for about 2 minutes. Between some songs Brendon told a little story about dreams and that he thanked us all for our time, and money. The ticket cost was around $30 bucks each before ticketmaster threw in their taxes. The show was well worth the money, buying a $30 ticket for three bands was pretty good to me. I will definetly go to the next gig when they come down here for the next album tour. If you get the chance, check out the Nothing Rhymes With Circus tour and check out Panic! At The Disco, Jack's Mannequin, and if you like dancier music Bloc Party. // 10
