The Gospel Tour, featuring headliner Panic! At The Disco and OurStage members Walk The Moon, has seen the universally reviled Westboro Baptist “Church” appearing at recent shows to protest the bands’ insufficient level of hatred for other human beings or something. Both bands are turning that frown upside-down by donating to human rights charities. PATD pledged to donate $20 to the Human Rights Campaign for each WBC
brainwashed dipshit protestor, but when only 13 showed up, the band bumped it up to $1,000, plus a portion of their merchandise sales. For their part, Walk The Moon has pledged the profits from their night’s merch sales to the youth group Everyone Is Gay.
So…keep it up, WBC.

There are some situations you expect to run into when going to a concert. Crowd surfing, for instance, becomes a very real possibility. Drunk people slamming into you all night is an obvious obstacle. But a cracked floor causing an evacuation? No way. Unfortunately, for Panic! At The Disco fans this past Saturday night, that’s exactly what happened. Only two songs into their set at the Tabernacle, the show quickly came to a halt as promoters asked everyone to evacuate quickly, due to the floor cracking. Thankfully, no one was injured, and the venue made a statement shortly after via Facebook that, “The Tabernacle is a historical 100 year old building. We will be meeting with a structural engineer ASAP to make sure the building is safe for another 100 years.”
The band is currently working to reschedule the show. In the meantime, catch them on the rest of their Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die tour.
While you were busy ringing in the new year with friends and loved ones Tuesday night, Fall Out Boy and Panic! At The Disco were also rocking”I mean ringing it in. Live from Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, Fall Out Boy performed fan favorites “Alone Together,” “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark,” and “Young Volcanoes.” Meanwhile, on Fox’s New Year’s Eve Live, Panic! At The Disco could be found performing “This Is Gospel” and “Miss Jackson.” You can view all performances below, and let us know what you think.
2013 was a pretty good year for twenty | one | pilots. Fueled By Ramen released the band’s third album, Vessel, at the beginning of the year, they opened for Fall Out Boy on a massive autumn tour that also included Panic! At The Disco, and they were nominated as an ‘Artist To Watch’ by the MTV VMAs for “Holding On To You.” So it’s only fitting that the band would end the year with a bang by releasing their new music video for “Truce.” Check out the video below, and catch them on tour in Australia, New Zealand, and Europe all through January and February, with US spring dates to be announced soon.

We were fortunate enough to catch Panic! At The Disco’s set on Fall Out Boy‘s current US tour and cannot say enough good things about their evolution as performers. The boys who once seemed frightened to be on stage have grown into confident entertainers. Frontman Brendon Urie has never sounded as good as he does in 2013, and if Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die! is as good as the singles lead us to believe, we’ll no doubt be seeing plenty of PATD in the years to come.
