Panic! At The Disco plan new ‘classic’ cover

Plus they want to borrow Motley Crue's tent

Panic! At The Disco plan to cover Queen on their forthcoming US tour.

The band are planning a version of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ for their next set of US dates, to join versions of Smashing Pumpkins‘Tonight Tonight’ and Radiohead’s ‘Karma Police’ that they already play.

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ is one of the hardest [songs] to cover, and we’ve been working on it,” guitarist Ryan Ross told MTV News.


“The idea of it kind of blows my mind though, I mean, it would be all of us, plus our touring keyboard player, singing the harmonies. That seems like it would be a lot of fun.”

The band are set to play a US arena tour, beginning on November 7 in Sunrise, Florida.

“We’re going to build a house of mirrors, with ramps for us to come down,” said Ross of thier new production. “In the front of the stage, underneath our keyboard and cello players, we’re going to have animal cages, and we’re going to put dancers painted to look like lions in there. I’m talking about full-body paint, with teeth and a tail.”

The band are also keen to perform under a large tent last used by 80s rock veterans Motley Crue in 2005.

The guitarist said: “We spoke to this guy about getting the tent, but then he told us that Mötley Crüe might use it again on some upcoming tour, so we’ll have to see. We might have to go without a tent.”
