With or without the exclamation point (which they briefly ditched in '08), Panic! at The Disco is never short on adrenaline. At this stop on The Gospel Tour, you can expect to hear songs from the band's latest album, Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!, including hit singles like "Miss Jackson, "This is Gospel" and "Girls/Girls/Boys." You can also count on over-the-top lead singer Brendon Urie to rip through older hits like "Nine in the Afternoon" and the band's platinum single, "I Write Sins Not Tragedies." Indie rockers Walk The Moon ("Anna Sun") and Youngblood Hawke ("We Come Running") will get the evening started. Learn More

A thoroughly enjoyable & entertaining show. The dancers' energy started things off perfectly. Though the choir needs work, there was a superb version of Ellington's "Sentimental Mood" by singer Teresa Parente, gorgeous voice! She also sang an Andrews Sisters' number with the same gals who've formed S.O.S., The Sisters of Swing, since that show. They're FAB!!
Quotes & Highlights‘a marvelous entertainment. Don’t miss these wonderful performers!’ —L.A. Jazz Review
The June 2006 show at the Alex was completely sold out! So the Towne Singers are again combining forces with the Swing City Big Band and swing dancers from Pasadena Ballroom Dance Association.
Featuring many of the lush ballads and finger-poppin’ jive that made the music of the 1940s so contagious, including: In the Mood; Chattanooga Choo-Choo; I Got a Gal in Kalamazoo; I’ll Never Smile Again; Sing, Sing, Sing; It Don’t mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing); and Moonlight Serenade. These songs, and many more, sung with the original lyrics, many of which rarely have been heard before.
The show is presented in the form of a live radio broadcast from the 1940s, complete with commercial jingles, period costumes, humor, and dancing. This is a unique opportunity to see and hear a full 17-piece 1940s-era Big Band with an over-the-top swing dance ensemble AND a 100-voice show chorus live onstage at the same time.
