Panic! At The Disco to play their one-off show in Auckland this October

A group of charismatic rockstars are causing quite a stir as they are about to set foot on Kiwi soil the second time, any guess who they are? They're the legends behind rock anthems 'This Is Gospel', 'Nine In The Afternoon', 'Hallelujah' and 'The Ballad Of Mona Lisa'! You read it right! Panic! At The Disco are coming our way, bringing their invigorating performance to Auckland's Spark Arena this October.

Before we get to witness their hair-raising performance, Panic! will first be heading to their Australian shows, winding up their visits in Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane and Melbourne.

The band are stopping by NZ as part of their 2018 world tour which celebrates the release of their sixth studio album 'Pray for the Wicked'. Released last 22nd of June, the album came off the heels of their critically-acclaimed platinum fifth album 'Death Of A Bachelor' which debuted at no. 1 on the Billboard 200 Chart and was nominated for Best Rock Album at the 2017's Grammy Awards. It's only been a year since Panic! At The Disco last performed at Auckland's Spark Arena, stunning fans and critics alike.

"I'm supposed to give a detailed rundown of the Panic! At The Disco show but honestly, I'm not entirely sure what happened. Usually I make some notes, keep track of the set list and try to maintain some semblance of professionalism. That Panic! made me lose control of all of that, says a lot… Urie raged on, dancing on the points of his toes, swinging his arms around wildly and back flipping from the drum platform. And the man can sing." - NZ Herald

"The extravaganza that is Panic! At The Disco was full of fancy lighting, massive gold confetti cannons and Brendon's dancing—what more could you want?!... The adrenaline pumping show included tunes from present and past albums and had the audience screaming, clapping and fist pumping along as the concert went into the night… Brendon's vocals were just something else—he hit high notes with ease and witnessing his musical talents in an arena felt surreal!" - Tearaway

"Covered in glitter, I thought I had been prepared, but as it turns out, nothing can prepare you for the holy goodness that is Brendon Urie. In the rare moments that Brendon took a rest from being a vocal god and addressed the crowd, he had our undivided attention." - The Speakeasy

Frontman Brendon Urie, being the awesome captain of the group, also took time in 2017 to lend his legendary four-octave range to Broadway, playing a lead role in Cyndi Lauper's Tony Award-winning musical 'Kinky Boots' to rave reviews. With Panic!'s upcoming tour, Brendon returns to the flamboyant action-packed rock show the band are renowned for.

Snatch up your tickets and brace yourselves for a spellbinding show that'll surely set you all in Panic!
