Unforgettable moments from Panic! At the Disco’s big Vegas program

Panic! At the Disco wrapped its Wish the Wicked tour with a packed-house show at T-Mobile Arena Saturday night, a victorious homecoming and comprehensive display for Brendon Urie. The 31-year-old showman did it all during a two-hour-plus set. He drifted across the arena on a piano; backflipped off a drum riser; had fun with pyrotechnics, dancing near to real flames throughout “Crazy=Genius” (sample lyric: “You can set yourself on fire/But you’re never ever gon na burn, burn, burn”); and sauntered through the crowd serenading fans through high-fives and hugs.

While the young crowd was at its wildest for Panic! hits and fan favorites like “All set to Go,” “Hallelujah,” “Nicotine” and Urie’s gleeful, shirtless rendition of 2005 breakthrough “I Write Sins Not Tragedies,” his efficiency of 3 disparate covers stood out and best showed his dynamic adaptability:

“I Can’t Make You Love Me” After that trip across the arena flooring, Urie climbed up aboard a mini-stage and sat down at a piano to sing Bonnie Raitt’s 1991 ballad, explaining how his love for the tune comes from how his mother played it to soothe his younger hyperactivity. Urie’s variation is quite and unfortunate, and the performance offered the most Instagrammable– and wonderful– moment of the show when the piano gradually floated above the audience back to the main phase.

“Girls Just Wish To Have A Good Time” Urie’s onstage confidence is at an all-time high, likely due to his Broadway turn in Kinky Boots. As a sort of tribute to Cyndi Lauper, who wrote music and lyrics for that production, he’s covering her candy-pop ’80s struck “Girls Just Wished To Have Fun” and having a great deal of enjoyable while doing it. Naturally, a number of Panic!’s younger fans weren’t familiar with the source material, however the parents in the audience happily bounced along.

“Bohemian Rhapsody” Throughout the night, the audience screamed whenever Urie vocalized an ultra-high note– and had plenty of opportunity to appreciate his range during an effective performance of the Queen classic, total with Wayne’s World-style headbanging. The outrageous operatic track is clearly tough to cover, however Panic! went above and beyond. Consider it a difficulty for the actual Queen, and vocalist Adam Lambert, when they play the nearby Park Theater in September.

CHICAGO– Employees at Chicago hotels now have “panic buttons” to summon assistance if required.

A regulation that took effect this week needs hotels to provide the buttons. They’re meant to secure housekeeping staff and others who work alone in guest spaces from sexual harassment and other crimes.

A survey of 500 workers carried out by Unite Here Regional 1 found 58 percent reported they’ve experienced a minimum of one occurrence of sexual harassment by visitors. The most typical was visitors answering their door naked.

The buttons trigger a message to the cellular phone of the staff member’s manager, manager and personnels department and provide the worker’s name and area.

Karen Kent is president of Unite Here Local 1. She states it’s “a new day for females operating in Chicago hotels.”
