Panic! At The Disco has been completely killing their rendition of Queen’s classic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ throughout their ‘Gospel Tour,’ which came to an end on August 28. However, fans can relive with a brand new live video.
It’s been 38 years since Queen came out with “Bohemian Rhapsody,” and while many have tried, Panic! At The Disco may be one of the only bands to be able to completely pull it off. If you weren’t lucky enough to be there on their tour to see their cover, trust us — you’ll want to watch this video!
Panic! At The Disco Covers ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’
Frontman Brendon Urie started the ballad on the vocals and keyboard, crooning the ballad that Freddie Mercury made legendary. The singer wore the tightest leather pants and was bare-chested throughout the performance.
While the performance begins on somewhat of a mild tone, Brendon’s vocals are chilling as he serenades the amazed audience, who sing along in unison.
The light show only adds to this astounding performance as it illuminates ‘silhouettes’ and booms as ‘thunderbolts’ do. Goosebumps arise in plenty during the whole act.
Do they do the song justice?
Panic! Takes a whole new rock perspective on this song, which is both exciting and powerful. For an anthem that has few and far contemporaries, this rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody undoubtedly does justice to Queen’s memory and amazing work.
Watch the video above and be prepared to be mind blown! Then let us know — were you blown away by Panic!’s cover? Or do you think classic songs should be left alone? Let us know!
