In what’s been a whirlwind two days of Panic! At The Disco fuelled hysterics, we managed to catch the band live on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. After braving the biting cold and snow of the Big Apple, we assumed our positions in the warm nestles of the NBC studios, awaiting the presence of Brendon and Co.
The performance won’t go to air for another 2 hours – so we thought we’d give you a little insight into what you can expect – aside from the fact that is was totally ethereal and spiritual-experience-esque, there are a few little tidbits that we’d like to share.
First up, Brendon smashed out the ‘DuckTales’ theme song, swinging arms, smiling, giving 500%… we don’t know where he gets his energy?! If you don’t remember it, DuckTales was a Disney cartoon that ran during the late 80s and featured a catchy as hell theme.
Panic! performed a rousing rendition of the new track ‘Say Amen (Saturday Night), which Jimmy praised during audience breaks and mused on just how much loved the “comedic gore” in the music video – a skill Brendon definitely picked up on during his Kinky Boots run! The RnB inflicted track allowed Brendon to show off his entire vocal range leaving the crowd in awe of his talents.
The band performed with their epic new bassist Nicole Row (here’s a little look into just how incredible she is) and to showcase just how dedicated Panic! fans are, there was a line spanning the street in the middle of a snowstorm. The show also featured appearances from Zoey Deutch and James McAvoy.
Panic! announced their highly anticipated new album Pray For The Wicked yesterday – check out all the deets here!
