Panic At The Disco pimp their singer to Oxegen crowd

Band try to find true love for Brendon Urie during festival set

Panic! At The Disco enjoyed a set filled with rare sunshine as they played Oxegen‘s O2 Stage this evening (July 12).

However, while the crowd used the sunlight to dry off after a recent downpour, the band’s guitarist Ryan Ross had a different use for the sunshine, attempting to find frontman Brendon Urie a date with a crowd member.

“It’s a good thing the sun is still out, as I can see all your faces and there are quite a few attractive people in. How many of you are single?” he asked, ahead of ‘Lying Is The Most Fun A Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off’ as the moshpit all raised their hands.

“All of you? So is Brendon, I’m dedicating this song to all the single people and Brendon,” explained Ross. “I hope he finds true love by the end of the song.”

‘I Write Sins Not Tragedies’ followed, with the band urging the crowd to sing along loudly with them so they could “hear the beautiful Irish singing voices”, before the band wrapped things up with ‘Nine In The Afternoon’
