Panic! At The Disco frontman Brendon Urie has asked fans to stop trying to kiss him during concerts. Over a Twitch live stream, Urie politely pleaded with fans to stop kissing him when he walks into the crowd during ‘Death Of A Bachelor’.
“I went in for a hug and a girl kissed my neck,” he explained. “My sweaty gross neck. The neck kiss is so intimate, too… it’s like an extra ‘Fuck you!’ to me. You know what I mean? Please stop kissing me on the death walk. Please stop kissing me, please.” Watch the stream below.

Following Urie’s live stream, Panic! tour manager Zac Hall took to Twitter to warn fans that anyone caught trying to kiss Urie would be escorted out of the venue.
Just a heads up folks. I’m done with this crap of kissing Brendon during the “death walk”. If I see it, you will be kicked out of the show right away. The end.

Back in 2017, Brendon Urie was forced to move house due to constant harassment from fans making it impossible for him to live there. During the events, Urie shared the below statement:
“I only hope this sheds light on what inappropriate behaviour looks like. Boundaries are boundaries for a reason. Everyone has a right to feel safe and everyone has an obligation to be happy. So I’m taking my family somewhere that might make this a possibility.”
Urie also had to stop meeting fans after his Kinky Boots performances, because they were acting dangerous and disrespectful.
We are all familiar with the uncontrollable excitement you feel when in the presence of someone you admire. But it is imperative to remember that people are just people and respect for others boundaries is imperative.
