Panic! at the Disco Launches Human Rights Organization
The rock singer said Thursday (June 28) that the nonprofit will support “communities subject to discrimination or abuse on the basis of gender, race, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity.”
Panic! at the Disco will allocate $1 of each ticket from U.S. dates of its Pray For the Wicked Tour to Highest Hopes. The tour starts July 11 in Minneapolis and will also visit arenas like New York’s Madison Square Garden and Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Panic! at the Disco released its debut in 2005. The band has downsized over the years, and now only includes Urie. A touring band accompanies him on the road.
Its 2016 album, Death of a Bachelor, earned a Grammy nomination for best rock album. Panic! at the Disco released a new album, Pray for the Wicked, last week.
All of you show me strength, courage + motivation & as a result it felt important to create something to show you that I see the wonderful things you're doing out there in the world. With that being said, I want to join in on the fight for those who cannot fight for themselves.— Panic! At The Disco (@PanicAtTheDisco) June 28, 2018
