On September 14, the Las Vegas pop band Panic at the Disco will perform at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.
Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. on June 8 through Ticketmaster, with prices to be disclosed. Verizon Up members can get in on the presale beginning at 10 a.m. Thursday, while Citi cards can get in on the presale beginning at 10 a.m. Friday.
Panic at the Disco, who were discovered by Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy, had a brief period of early popularity in the late 2000s, with a half-dozen songs including “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” and “Nine in the Afternoon.”
However, when the lineup of the band continued to shift, fans began to lose interest. Brendon Urie, the band’s lead vocalist, was the lone survivor, ushering in a new era with the platinum-selling “Miss Jackson” in 2013, the first of nine more massive successes, including 2018’s “High Hopes,” which went platinum five times in the United States and reached the Top 10 in Europe and Australia.
The tour will promote Panic at the Disco’s upcoming seventh album, “Viva Las Vengeance,” which will be released on August 19. Urie described the album as “a look back at who I was 17 years ago and who I am today with the fondness I didn’t have previously,” according to a press release. I didn’t understand I was recording an album until I saw the tape recorder, and that kept me honest.”
Panic at the Disco has performed in the Twin Cities more than a dozen times, including appearances at the X, Target Center, and the Basilica Block Party among them.
