Panic! at the Disco Announce New Tour Via Hilarious Televangelist Vid

Ugh, if only every time nothing was on TV, Brendon Urie would pop onscreen with a dramatic reading of Panic! at the Disco lyrics. To announce The Gospel Tour, the Las Vegas outfit created a hilarious promo vid featuring the band's frontman as a televangelist.

In the video above, Ohio rockers Walk the Moon flip through infomercials before stumbling upon Urie's pastor-like reading of the lyrics to Panic!'s latest single "This Is Gospel." Heads up, though: Call the 1-800-GOSPEL-1 phone number at the bottom of Urie's commercial and it will only ring a few times before your call is disconnected. (Sigh... we were hoping for more of Televangelist Urie.) 

The skit ends with Urie inviting Walk the Moon to open for P!ATD on tour, an offer they ecstatically accept. Rising indie-pop outfits Youngblood Hawke and Magic Man will also play select dates. Pre-sale starts on February 26 at 10 AM local time. Fans can RSVP for a pre-sale code here, and regular dates go on sale on February 28 unless otherwise noted.

Check out the full list of dates below, and find out what Panic! life is like on the road in the latest episode of Fuse Follows, where we join the band for a deep Miley Cyrus discussion on their tour bus.
