Panic! At The Disco Blow the Water Out of the Bellagio Fountains

As if Panic! At The Disco‘s lead singer Brendon Urie wasn’t extra enough with his endless talent and wicked style, he’s really gone above and beyond this time around.  The Vegas based band, kicked off Game 5 of the Stanley Cup by performing in the middle of the fountains of the Bellagio Hotel.

For those of you who don’t know the iconic fountains, they are known as the musical fountains that dance to a choreographed light show routine. The fountains were famed in 2001 in the ending sequence of Oceans Eleven, as the cast watches the fountains before parting their separate ways in a very dramatic cinematic way. So hearing that Brendon Urie performed in the middle of all that drama only makes sense.

The band was placed on a stage at the center of the 8-acre fountain to perform their new song “High Hopes,” amid an array of dancing water streams. I have to admit that the end result of the show left me a little less than impressed.  I think what really took me out of it was the audio quality of the performance. I know that Brendon is an amazing vocalist, so I have to chalk it up to the venue. Who knew performing in the middle of wide open fountain wouldn’t produce the best acoustics? But regardless of the missing elegance in the sound, even simply performing in such an unlikely spot in such and iconic location is enough to tune in a see it happen. But I have “High Hopes” that this is the last water show Panic! At The Disco put on, pun intended.
