Panic! at the Disco to play ahead of Game 5 on the Las Vegas Strip

Updated June 6, 2018 - 9:53 pm

Panic! at the Disco is planning a splashy (pun intended) performance for Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final.

The Vegas rock band is slated to play at Bellagio Fountains on Thursday, ahead of the Golden Knights-Washington Capitals game at T-Mobile Arena. The NHL announced today that the band would play at an “iconic” Vegas location, the time and site to be revealed Thursday on the league’s Twitter page. The game itself airs at 5 p.m. on NBC.

Panic! is filling the void created when The Killers were being sought to perform at the Bellagio Fountains, but could not assemble in Vegas in time for the show.

Sources familiar with the production specified Bellagio Fountains as that iconic site. The attraction has played “Viva Las Vegas” during the water show immediately following every VGK home victory.

“Panic! at the Disco” is due to release its next album, “Pray For The Wicked” on June 22. On Tuesday morning, the band was also announced as one of the acts to perform at IHeartRadio Music Festival on Sept. 21-22 at T-Mobile Arena.
