Panic! At The Disco celebrated the imminent launch of their fifth studio album ‘Death Of A Bachelor‘ with a show at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on Tuesday evening (12th January).
Following the sad news of David Bowie‘s passing the day before, Panic! At The Disco donated the proceeds from their merchandise sales to Cancer Research UK.

Panic! At The Disco also played a snippet of David Bowie‘s ‘Oh You Pretty Things‘ (Brendon Urie‘s favourite David Bowie song) after a cover of Queen‘s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody‘. “These are two songs that I wish I wrote,” explained Brendon during the gig.
