Update from Brendon of Panic! At The Disco

As many of you know, Brendon Urie of Panic! At The Disco broke his ankle on Sunday at a Florida show. Brendon sent a statement to the band’s publicist about the event:

Date & Time: 10:25 p.m., May 29, 2011

Place: Pompano Beach Amphitheater, Florida

Situation: Critical

Well… It’s kinda funny, actually. In the middle of the show, I usually
sprint around the venue to get to the front of house to play an acoustic
number face-to-face with the fans. The song went over just fine, but on
the way back to the stage I lost balance trying to sprint down some
stairs. Rolled my ankle and felt something tear in my foot. When I
crawled back to the stage, I felt a need to look at my injury. My ankle
had swelled up to the size of a pool-ball, but the adrenaline had helped
to subdue the pain. Got an OCL splint from the hospital where the doctor
told me not to walk on it for at least 3 weeks.

Well, Doc, I don’t have 3 weeks. The shows will go on.
