Back in 2016, Panic! at the Disco covered Queen‘s magnum opus “Bohemian Rhapsody” during their concert at the historic Mayan Theater in L.A. for their episode of Live from the Artists Den. Now, you can watch the full performance.
The song begins with the Panic! bandmates harmonizing the iconic intro. Frontman Brendon Urie then continues sitting at the piano playing and singing in his impressive falsetto.
“Playing live always has an influence on my writing,” Urie says in a promotional video for the Artists Den episode. “I try to get better as a musician for the live shows and then hope that that will relate to how I’m writing.”

After that 2016 performance, another chapter has been written in the legacy of “Bohemian Rhapsody,” with an Oscar-winning Queen and Freddie Mercury biopic of the same name released last year. Panic’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” cover has also since become a staple of their tour. Check out another performance of the cover from the Death Of A Bachelor Tour below:
