(Radio.com) Panic! At The Disco is spending their summer on the road with Weezer. Like most of his peers, Panic! frontman Brendon Urie is a huge fan of Rivers Cuomo's band, and he still seems shocked to find himself on the bill with them.

"It's so crazy to think about touring with Weezer," he tells Radio.com. "Because that's a band that I grew up with. 'The Blue Album' and Pinkerton were huge for me; I learned how to play drums and guitar to those records. And they hold such a special place for me."

Besides the fact that he's a Weezer fan, Urie is happy to play in front of audiences that may not be totally familiar with Panic! "It's kinda why I love playing festivals too; there's something about having to prove yourself. People that came to see Weezer, I wanna see what kind of reaction I can get from them. I wanna pull some kind of visceral reaction. I wanna shock people, I wanna impress people."

Urie recently spoke with Radio.com about another time when he played in front of someone else's audience when he made a surprise appearance during Halsey's set at Coachella. He says that his music tastes expand from pop to alternative rock, and far beyond that. Read more here.
