Panic At The Disco hails from Summerlin, Nevada, a suburb of Las Vegas. The group was formed by Ryan Ross, who received a guitar for Christmas when he was twelve, and his friend, Spencer Smith, who begged his parents for a drum set shortly thereafter. The two friends began playing covers of blink-182 music and soon recruited classmates Brent Wilson on bass and Brendon Urie on vocals.
The newly formed Panic At The Disco began practicing in the living room of Spencer Smith's grandmother and soon attracted the attention of Pete Wentz from Fall Out Boy. Wentz brought Panic At The Disco to the Decaydance/Fueled by Ramen label, who signed them almost immediately. The group, having just scraped through high school, packed up and left for College Park, Maryland, to record their debut album.
A Fever You Can't Sweat Out was released on September 27, 2005, and attracted a huge internet following. Panic At The Disco was picked up by MTV, who premiered the music video for "I Write Sins Not Tragedies" on January 17, 2006. The single climbed to number seven on the charts, and Panic At The Disco began garnering a lot of attention.
Brent Wilson left the band in May of 2006 and was eventually replaced by bassist Jon Walker. The new foursome then embarked on their first headlining tour of Europe and North America and sold out all forty-five tour dates. In early August of the same year, A Fever You Can't Sweat Out sold its one-millionth copy, achieving a platinum certification from the RIAA.
Panic At The Disco released their latest album, Pretty. Odd., on March 21, 2008. The group also joined the Honda Civic Tour to support the album. Tickets for Panic At The Disco will certainly be hard to find, but TicketNetwork has got you covered!
