Yesterday (April 30th 2019), Las Vegas Commissioner Jim Gibson offered Brendon Urie, the frontman and sole full-time member of pop-rock outfit Panic! At The Disco, a key to the city in recognition of his outstanding achievements in music.
The singer/songwriter joins a number of other esteemed artists like Elvis Presley, Madonna, and Britney Spears who also received the same honour in the past.
Along with his contributions in the music industry through Panic! At The Disco, who to date have released six full-length studio albums (most of which have reached Platinum status in the US by the RIAA), Urie has many other connections to the Nevada city, one of which that’s worth noting is that the hockey team the Las Vegas Golden Knights currently use the band’s track ‘Vegas Lights’ as their goal song.
Urie also gives back to his community through his Highest Hopes Foundation. Partnering with State Farm and the Boys & Girls Club of Southern Nevada, the organisations plan to break ground on a Youth Notes for Notes recording studio for local children, which will open later this year.
Panic! At The Disco‘s sixth full-length album, ‘Pray For The Wicked’, is out now via Fueled By Ramen/DCD2.
