Heck, pretty much the whole Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die! tour, named after the band's current album, has been sold out.

As drummer Spencer Smith, the only other original member, is off getting help for addiction, Urie didn't have any trouble commanding the young crowd, who gobbled up his backflips, flirtatious banter, and shirtless performances during the nearly 90-minute set...Read More.
