Formed in 2004, Panic! At The Disco soon after released their first album, "A Fever You Can't Sweat Out." Popularized by its single "I Write Sins Not Tragedies," the album eventually achieved double platinum status. The band has since produced four additional Billboard 200 charted albums.

A constant presence in American pop music for more than a decade, Panic! At The Disco's works represent a variety of sounds and genres, from the acoustic melodies of "Pretty. Odd." to the electropop beats of "Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!"

Panic! At The Disco recently released "Death of a Bachelor" which shot to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and No. 1 on iTunes in more than 18 countries. Brendon Urie, the remaining member of the band's original line-up, recorded the majority of the instruments and vocals for the album in addition to writing all of the songs, including hit singles "Hallelujah," "Emperor's New Clothes" and current single "Victorious."

The April 9 performance is sponsored by Luther's Student Activities Council Concerts Committee.
