Watch Panic! At the Disco Play at a Rodeo

While most of the music world is making a beeline to Austin for South by Southwest with many performers trying to get as many high-profiled gigs at the actual event, it’s nice to see that one of our favorite bands decided to do the complete opposite of that.

Leave it to Panic! at the Disco to decide to give fans a surprise by showing up in the middle of a rodeo to give an “impromptu” concert which featured some of their discography as well as a cover of Journey’s “Any Way You Want It” and AC/DC’s “You Shook Me All Night Long.”

We swear, we aren’t making this up.

According to sources who were lucky enough to be at the show, the band came in on, what else, a tractor and gave them all a once-in-a-lifetime show. We say once-in-a-lifetime because we’re sure this is never going to happen again.

Check out some fanshot video, which might not be the best videos in the world, but they get the job done.

Surprisingly, Panic! at the Disco have been quiet for sometime now. The last we heard from the band was actually from frontman Brendon Urie when the “Drunken History of Fall Out Boy” was posted by the band a few months ago.

On the upside, they do have a handful of concerts coming up this year mostly including festivals like Tulsa’s Center of the Universe Festival and Reading and Leeds in the United Kingdom.
