Urie, only 24, showed lots of worshipful qualities. His vocal abilities, for one. On “Hurricane,” a track off the latest P!ATD disc and one of the night’s many Queen-esque melodic and melodramatic opuses, he jumped between a falsetto that soared to heavenly heights and a death metal roar from way down under.
And he never stopped being funny. “Memories” had him crooning, Freddy Mercury-style, such chucklers as “Memories, where’d you go? You’re all I’ve ever known!” He kept up the deity bit even after going shirtless before the bombastic “Lying Is the Most Fun a Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off,” declaring himself to be “Sexy Jesus,” though without the robe he looked more like a Skynyrd roadie than the son of God.
