Yes, it’s true and it’s “Time to Dance.”

CAB scored one of the most popular bands out there today to come to ESU for our spring concert.

Panic! at the Disco will he hitting the stage at the Mattioli Recreation Center on April 21, 2016. The opening acts are Special Weapons and DJ Reed Streets.

CAB held an online survey of a variety of artists for us ESU students to vote.

According to a post on ESU Cab’s Facebook page, 60 percent of students voted for Panic! as their number one choice. Panic! is an American rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada that formed in 2004.

The members of the band include: vocalist and guitarist Brendon Urie, bassist Dallon Weekes, guitarist Kennth Harris and drummer Dan Pawlovich.

The band recorded their first demos while in high school. Not long after, the band recorded and released its debut studio album, “A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out” (2005).

The most popular and most well known song on the album, “I Write Sins Not Tragedies,” eventually became double platinum in the United States.

The band will also be joining Weezer for a summer tour this summer, with special guest Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness.

If the show on campus makes you fall in love or creates a bigger fan out of you, you can find more tickets on their website. panicatthedisco.com.

Tickets went on sale Monday, Feb. 22, but DON’T PANIC!

You can still grab your tickets at the sales desk on the top floor of the union. You can purchase your tickets Monday-Friday from 8:15 a.m. to 6 p.m.

However, after 4:15 p.m., buying your tickets with cash is not available.

Students can purchase two tickets at the student price, which is $20, and you HAVE to have your student ID with you. All of the other tickets will be priced at the guest price ($35).

Tickets for the general public will go on sale March 4 at “Nine In the Afternoon.”

Just kidding, at noon.

These public tickets can be bought at the union or online at esu.shop.ticketstoday.com.

Tickets will be on sale until they sell out, and by the looks of the survey response, you should probably act fast.

So, are you guys ready to make a “House Of Memories” in the Mattioli Center? The show starts at 8 p.m., and the doors will open at 7 p.m.

Get there when the doors open to claim your space! Make sure you download their brand new album, “Death of a Bachelor,” and be ready to sing and dance along.
