Sometimes a frosty mug can go a long way in lifting a touring artist’s spirits. Case in point: Brendon Urie says beer is his number one tour essential in a new “Ask Anything” Q&A video from iHeartRadio. Watch the full interview vid below.
“Beer is my comfort food,” jokes the Panic! At The Disco singer when asked his “three main tour essentials.” It’s just one of the questions among a string of fan queries for the affable performer. “I have to say beer. We gotta have beer, good beer.”
Urie’s other two necessities on the road? Well, his laptop, of course. But the musician also notes that days off are a crucial element for his act on the touring circuit. “Days off for us are ways are kind of reinvigorating our friendships,” he says.
But what would a Brendon Urie Q&A be without a Kinky Boots question? The P!ATD mastermind amazed the Great White Way last year in the lead role on Broadway. And, believe it or not, Urie actually got to keep the boots!
“Not everybody gets to keep their boots when they play a part in Kinky Boots,” he reveals. “But I did because I was the—claim to fame—the smallest or shortest Charlie Price they had had ever in the history of the show. Which is kind of crazy, but it did help me keep the boots.”
