12/10/15 – Pier 36, New York, NY.
In New York City, Pandora threw a huge holiday party for their listeners. With a Guitar Hero station, a holiday themed photobooth, and a great lineup of acts, Pandora curated the perfect night at Pier 36. The huge warehouse was packed with a soundtrack provided by the boys of Cash Cash, who kicked off the night with a DJ set to warm up the crowd. Then, G-Eazy took to the stage with songs from his 2014 release These Things Happen, like “I Mean It” and “Tumblr Girls.” Along with hits from When It’s Dark Out, like “Random” and fan favorite collab with Bebe Rexha, “Me, Myself & I” who joined him onstage for the number.
Next up, Panic! At the Disco brought their energy and Brendon Urie’s backflips. Performing singles like “Miss Jackson,” “The Ballad of Mona Lisa,” and “New Perspective.” They also brought the best cover of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” I’ve ever heard, the entire room was singing along to Brendon Urie’s spot on rendition. The band finished up the set with fan favorite “I Write Sins, Not Tragedies.”
After a short break and another set by Cash Cash, Fall Out Boy began what can only be described as their greatest hits set. Kicking it off with their, arguably, biggest hit “Sugar We’re Goin Down,” bringing to their latest single release “Irresistible,” and then to my personal favorite “A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A Little More ‘Touch Me’” from From Under The Cork Tree. They continued to impress with their cover of Michael Jackson’s “Beat It,” and proved their live presence hasn’t waivered in their 14 years as a band.
The show was broadcasted live for fans at home, and screens around the room broadcasted a live feed of fans in the audience. Pandora created a unique and successful experience to celebrate another year of success. Fall Out Boy and G-Eazy also curated mixes on Pandora to celebrate the event, which are available to stream here.
