Greatness certainly recognizes greatness!
If you've been following Panic! At The Disco for a while now, you know that one of frontman Brendon Urie's biggest influences is Queen, right? He's constantly cited the legendary band as an influence and has been covering their track "Bohemian Rhapsody" live for a while now!
It seems that cover has finally gotten onto the radar of the band now too! In a tribute to Queen at the American Music Awards the band performed their cover to much acclaim. However, months later, Queen guitarist Brian May just acknowledged it!
Taking to his Instagram page May posted a clip of it with the caption "Nice job, guys! Big Big thanks ! Panic at the Disco performing live and dangerous at the American Music Awards.”
Very cool! I would have loved to see Urie's reaction when seeing the post! Check out the post, as well as the full performance below.
