It’s not a secret that Halsey had an emo upbringing. The singer was, and still is, a huge fan of My Chemical Romance and Pierce The Veil, just like the rest of us. Plus, she’s bonded with Pete Wentz over lyrics and made all our dreams come true by performing onstage with All Time Low.
Her friendship with Brendon Urie, who performed with her at Coachella, and love for Panic! At The Disco are also well documented. And now she’s telling the best story to show how close they are.
Growing up, Halsey frequently went to Warped Tour and used to follow P!ATD on the East Coast during tours.
“I think I’ve seen them around 20 times!” She tells NME.
“I remember having this wristband from the pit [at one of the shows], and Brendon Urie being on the edge of the stage and acknowledging me,” Halsey recalls one specific show. “So I wore that wristband every day. I even covered it with plastic when I showered so it wouldn’t fall off!”
However, the wristband broke during a bullying incident at school, causing Halsey to lose it forever.
The singer told Urie that story, and he had the most amazing response.
“I went back to my dressing room after [a show of mine he came to recently],” she tells NME. “There was a bouquet of flowers and two plastic Panic! At the Disco VIP wristbands, with a little note that said: ‘This is to replace the one you lost’.”
We’re not crying, YOU’RE crying.
In other P!ATD news…
Panic! At The Disco wil be part of the Greatest Showman soundtrack album, as reported by Variety. The Greatest Showman—Reimagined features new takes on the movie’s songs and it will be out Nov. 16.
P!ATD are responsible for the opening number, “The Greatest Show.”
“Benj Pasek and Justin Paul are phenomenal writers,” Urie tells Variety. ‘They sent that song over and said, ‘We think you should sing this.’ And I heard it and I was like, ‘This sounds like a Panic! song. You guys did a Panic! song better than I’ve ever done a Panic! song. So I would love to.’”
Plus, the band recently announced the second leg of their Pray For The Wicked tour, which will see us praying for the wicked across North America well into 2019 with support from Two Feet.
