   RALEIGH – Panic! At The Disco performed to a sold-out crowd on Saturday night at the PNC Arena.
The band was preluded by opening acts Hayley Kiyoko and A R I Z O N A, who each sang a nine-song set before Panic! took the stage.
Panic!’s lead singer, Brendon Urie, gave the show the energetic opening it deserved by popping up from beneath the stage with “Silver Lining,” the leading song to its sixth studio album, “Pray for the Wicked.” He also rocked the stage with other songs such as “Ready to Go (Get Me Out of My Mind),” “LA Devotee” and “Girls/Girls/Boys.”
Some fans took it upon themselves to organize a fan project for “Girls/Girls/Boys” where each section of the venue was assigned one color to hold up during the song to create a rainbow.
Fans also had no problem with loudly singing along to the three featured covers of the night, “I Can’t Make You Love Me,” “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” and “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
After beginning the encore of his set with “Say Amen,” Urie took a moment to thank the fans who came to the show and had continuously support him. His final two encore songs included long-time fan-favorite,  “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” and “Victorious.”
Urie didn’t disappoint the thousands of fans who came to see the show.
If you have a chance to see Panic! At The Disco, you should.
