Brendon Urie loves his fans, but he doesn't love it when they accost him during shows.
On Panic! At The Disco's current North American tour, the frontman has been walking into the crowd during the band's song, "Death of a Bachelor." The stunt has been dubbed the "death walk," and apparently fans have been kissing him while he makes his way into the crowd. Unsurprisingly, he doesn't like it.
“I went in for a hug and a girl kissed my neck,” the singer explained on Twitch this weekend.
“My sweaty gross neck,” he added, clearly uncomfortable. “The neck kiss is so intimate, too… it’s like an extra ‘F**k you!’ to me. You know what I mean?"
"Please stop kissing me on the ‘death walk,’” he begged in the most polite way possible.
P!ATD's tour manager Zack Hall wasn't as polite when he approached the subject on Twitter Saturday (February 2).
"Just a heads up folks. I’m done with this crap of kissing Brendon during the “death walk”. If I see it, you will be kicked out of the show right away. The end," he wrote.
