Panic could head for Broadway stage

Panic! At The Disco could become the latest act to put on their own stage musical.

The Las Vegas-based band said it "would be amazing" to follow in the footsteps of rockers The Who and Green Day.

Drummer Spencer Smith said: "To put together a show that was a mix of our music as well as maybe tell a story... that would be like a dream,"

Tommy, the 1969 album from The Who, was adapted to a Tony-winning Broadway musical in the early 1990s. Most recently, Green Day gave new life to their Grammy-winning CD American Idiot when they brought the concept album to Broadway last year.

"Every musician wants to act, but we have a way to do it where people know we're not trained actors, so we can be a little bit cheesy," Spencer said.

The band recently released their third album Vices And Virtues.

Vocalist Brendon Urie said that this time around, the group had more creative agreement while making the album because they downsized.

Singer-guitarist Ryan Ross and bassist Jon Walker left Panic! in 2009 and formed the band The Young Veins, releasing the album Take A Vacation! in June.

"Everybody wants their opinion heard and so you argue a lot more with four cooks in the kitchen," Brendon said. "(Spencer and I) had been on the same page (regarding) where we saw the album going so in that sense there wasn't really any arguing and that kind of helped."

The duo will kick off a European tour April 29. They'll hit the road in America on May 22 in Boston.
