The band performed a faithful rendition of the tune, with frontman Brendon Urie’s acoustic strumming creating a foundation for guitarist Kenneth Harris to recreate – with a few clever tweaks – the song’s tumbling riff and solos. While Panic! At the Disco didn’t inject the “Say It Ain’t So” chorus with its quintessential distorted crunch, Urie’s massive vocals gave the performance a potent extra kick.
Pray for the Wicked arrived last month and follows Panic’s 2017 live album, All My Friends We’re Glorious, and their 2016 studio record, Death of a Bachelor. On July 11th, the group will launch a massive North American tour at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
