Following the release of their new album, Pray for the Wicked, Panic! At The Disco visited the set of the TODAY show this morning for their Citi Concert performance.
Ahead of their performance, the band’s frontman, Brendon Urie, talked about his last year’s debut on Broadway with “Kinky Boots,” confessing that “Broadway is a different monster.”
Urie also announced that the band and himself launched a non-profit organization advocating for human rights called Highest Hopes Foundation. Via a Facebook post, Urie wrote that “Every single day, all of you show me strength, courage, and motivation, and as a result, it felt important to create something to show you that I see all of the wonderful things you’re doing out there in the world. With that being said, I want to join in on the fight for those who cannot fight for themselves.”
The objective of the organization is to “lead, develop, and advocate support for human rights.” Fans can help support the organization by buying tickets for the “Pray for the Wicked” North American Tour. For each ticket sold, the band will donate $1 to the Highest Hopes Foundation.
Panic! At The Disco’s tour kicks off July 11, at the Target Center in Minneapolis.
