Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco performs on stage during the MTV EMAs 2018 at Bilbao Exhibition Centre on Nov. 4, 2018 in Bilbao, Spain.
The frontman opened the number by scaling the side of the Bilbao Exhibition Centre in a pre-recorded segment. He then entered the venue from the ceiling, completing the track with a high energy performance from the ground.
This isn’t the first time Urie performed the horn-heavy track from middair. During the band’s appearance at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 20, Urie flew above the Radio City Music Hall audience, supported by a platform invisible to home viewers.
“High Hopes” is the second track released as a single from Panic!’s 2018 album, Pray For the Wicked. It currently sits at its peak position of No. 21 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 after twelve weeks on the chart.
