On a chilly Friday night in Newark, thousands of fans packed into a sold-out Prudential Center as their favorite band got ready to take the stage. But before the show began, Prudential Center posted a short video that would set Panic! At The Disco’s internet community ablaze. The video showed what would appear to be a Panic-themed, Broadway playbill.
Speculation about the booklet only grew when yesterday, Panic! At The Disco posted on Instagram an image showcasing lead singer Brendon Urie posing with the playbill.
Comments flooded in with theories about the Instagram’s meaning. Urie recently finished a stint on Broadway as Charlie Price in Kinky Boots and rumors have surfaced that the singer is discussing his own movie or musical ideas with potential directors. Could this mean a Panic! At The Disco play is in the works?
Even Alternative Press added fuel to the flame with an article highlighting the speculation about Urie’s next musical projects
Although Urie and company may be up to something, this playbill had an entirely different meaning. With the help of our wonderful concertgoers, Prudential Center gifted Brendon Urie and Panic! At The Disco a replica playbill filled with fan art and notes of appreciation.
So yes, Panic! At The Disco didn’t mean to be mysterious with the image. Instead, they just wanted to show off the creativity and hard work of Prudential Center fans!
