Panic! at the Disco w/ Foxy Shazam & Patrick Stump
Starland Ballroom, Sayreville, NJ
November 4th, 2011
Going into this, this show meant a lot to me, because it would be the first time I saw Panic! live.
I’ve been pretty much an obsessed Panic! fan these last seven months so it was like a dream come true buying these tickets.
We got to the venue around 11:30. Which ended up not being to bad I was about 6th in line.
They opened the doors right at 6:30 and I got 4th row Ian’s side. Which I was completely fine with. I could see pretty well so I didn’t mind.
Foxy Shazam: This band might have put on one of the most energetic performances ever. I loved it! Eric is really an amazing front man. I’m not gonna lie I wasn’t a huge fan of their music, but they really put on an awesome show.
Patrick Stump: Going into this I was super excited to see Pat. I love the guy to death so I was unbelievably happy to see him live for the first time.
I’m not going to sit here and say I’m in love w/ ‘Soul Punk’, because I’m not, but last night he honestly blow me away. His vocals on every single song were unbelievable and the whole performance I was in awe.
I will be going to see one of his solo shows and as soon as possible.
Panic! at the Disco: Before Panic! came on the crowd was getting intense. It was unlike anything I had experienced before. I tried my best to hold my own, but the pushing was so bad that people were falling over. It was unreal. I know that’s concert life, but come on, no one could even breathe.
So third song into the set I know it wasn’t safe anymore. So I got the hell out of there. I watched the show from the back, but let me tell you it didn’t matter. It was still one of my favorite shows to this day.
Panic!’s energy was so amazing and the setlist was perfect on top of it.
My favorite of the night was probably ‘The Only Difference…’, but every single song Brendon’s vocals were superb.
Brendon’s banter was also freaking funny as hell. He was really taking in the whole crowd last night and I loved it. Seriously, I didn’t think I could love this man or his band anymore, but last night I loved them even more.
Overall, you had to have known the show was good. I was almost in the last row and still had a great time.
