The death walk has become a big part of Panic! At The Disco’s live show, and it allows Brendon Urie to get up close and personal with his fans. But unfortunately some fans have taken the concept of up close and personal way too far, and Panic’s road manager Zack Hall recently told fans that he’s considering scrapping the death walk altogether.
If people keep trying to lick, kiss or do weird creepy shit during the “death walk” we will for sure stop doing it. It’s a fun thing he likes to do and enjoys being that close to you guys, but come on. Have some respect. (It’s called that because he’s walking while singing DOAB)

Urie opened up about his reaction to fans kissing him on the death walk during a Twitch live stream, and he straight up told fans to stop kissing him.
“I went in for a hug and a girl like, kissed my neck. And it was… yikes dude, the neck kiss is so intimate too- which is an extra ‘fuck you’ to me, you know what I mean? Please stop kissing me on the death walk.”

Zack Hall also posted an update telling fans that anyone who kisses Brendon Urie will be kicked out.
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.

Long story short, don’t kiss Brendon Urie.
