|Panic! at the Disco, Two Feet and Betty Who|
Saw Panic! at the Disco, Two Feet and Betty Who live tonight at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, NY.
This pop singer performed to canned music, accompanied by no band, just a pair of male dancers, much in the same way as Max Frost has been doing on Twenty One Pilots tour (minus the dancers). This is a disturbing trend that I just don't get. Nothing against this artist, but I've just as soon have started the show an hour later (at 8PM), and had some time to grab dinner beforehand.
This guy, who performed with a keyboardist/computer operator, was a really weird choice to open for Panic! He plays a very bass-heavy classic blues style of guitar, and the music is pretty slow and chill. He's a native New Yorker, though, so he got a fairly decent response from the crowd, even though he seemed to suck a lot of the energy out of the room.

Death of a Bachelor
My daughter is a fan of this band, so I bought her tickets the take her for her birthday. They (actually "he" I guess, since there's only one official member of the band left) are very theatrical, and while he has a powerful voice, there are some notes I'd just as soon he not hit. He and his band put on a high-energy show, though, and I have to admit, they held my attention throughout. And I really enjoyed watching how much my daughter enjoyed it.
|I know Panic! is not a popular band on this site, but I actually liked them/him more than I expected to. For anyone who cares, his setlist is posted at https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/panic-at-the-disco/2019/barclays-center-brooklyn-ny-2b945c8a.html. |

awwww that's cute
|seeing them in March, my love for them has waned a lot in the past 3 years, but they were huge for me when I was 16-18, so I feel like I need to see them live|
|It's a pretty good live show, except that the opening acts aren't that great. I don't have much patience for people singing and dancing to canned music, so Didn't enjoy Betty Who. And Two Feet is a talented musician, but kind of boring, and doesn't really go with Panic!|
I'd also say that I felt that Panic! was kind of directly trying to compete with Twenty One Pilots. They do some stuff where they walk over the crowd on a giant walkway, Brendan gets on a small platform to lay piano and floats over the crowd; they have similar pyrotechnics, and there's a lot of overlap in their audience. If you like them at all, though, you'll have a good time. I'm not even that familiar with their songs, but I wasn't bored at all through the entire show. (The Panic! part, anyway.) My daughter is probably about your age, and she had a great time. (And my 13yo niece was there in another part of the stadium with a couple of her friends, and they had a great time also.)
