Panic! At The Disco have revealed that they will continue to tour despite frontman Brendon Urie's broken ankle.

Urie suffered the injury on stage during a gig in Pompano Beach, Florida on Saturday (May 29).

Updating fans in a post on Friendsorenemies.com, Urie revealed: "My ankle had swelled up to the size of a pool-ball, but the adrenaline had helped to subdue the pain."

Describing how the injury happened, Urie explained: "In the middle of the show, I usually sprint around the venue to get to the front of house to play an acoustic number face-to-face with the fans. The song went over just fine, but on the way back to the stage I lost balance trying to sprint down some stairs. Rolled my ankle and felt something tear in my foot."

"Got an OCL splint from the hospital where the doctor told me not to walk on it for at least three weeks. Well Doc, I don’t have three weeks," wrote the singer. "The shows will go on."



Panic! At The Disco are currently playing in support of their third studio album, 'Vices And Virtues', which was released earlier this year.

They return to the UK in August to play Reading and Leeds.
