Panic! at the Disco’s Brendon Urie was joined by Cyndi Lauper during a heartwarming rendition of her 1983 hit, “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” Alternative Press reports.
The collaboration occurred during Panic’s July 20 Nassau Coliseum show in Long Island and showcased the pair’s natural chemistry. Billboard reports, Urie previously starred in the 2017 production of Kinky Boots, which features compositions by Lauper.
Following the show, Urie posted a picture of himself and Lauper via Instagram, saying, “Last year I had the incredible opportunity to star in an amazing show called Kinky Boots with music by Cyndi Lauper. Tonight, I was joined by none other than Cyndi Lauper to sing ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.’ I’ll never stop pinching myself. #thinkimustbedreaming #prayforthewicked.”
Panic! at the Disco are currently on tour in support of their 2018 record, Pray for the Wicked with upcoming stops in New York City, Boston, Los Angeles and more. In a recent interview with NME, Urie talks about how the album relates to his faith, saying, “it’s a lot of my religious upbringing which I love bringing into my art because I can’t deny it from my history.
“The cultural significance of the Mormon faith in who I became as an adult is huge so being able to use these themes like ‘Pray for the Wicked,’ ‘Swear to God I’ll Never Repent,’ ‘Mama Can I Get an Amen,’ ‘Hook It Up’ is cool. But it’s also talking about where I saw myself as a kid to now. I dreamed of all this, being a rock star in a band.”
