Panic! At The Disco Guitarist Leaves Band, Following Misconduct Allegations

Written by Tom Williams on September 25, 2018

Panic! At The Disco have confirmed their touring guitarist Kenneth Harris will no longer be performing with the band, after allegations of misconduct surfaced online.

In a tweet, Panic! At The Disco didn’t directly address the allegations, but said Harris “will no longer be performing with us because of a personal matter”.

Allegations against Harris reportedly surfaced on Thursday, 20th September, when a Twitter user posted a thread about an experience they allegedly had with Harris when they were 16.

The Twitter user reportedly shared screenshots and stories of Harris interacting with and requesting photos from fans.

Harris, who first joined Panic! as a touring member in 2013, is yet to directly respond to the claims.

At present, Brendon Urie is the only full-time member of Panic! At The Disco, and the singer-songwriter is due to bring his Panic! project to Australia this October for an all-ages tour.

A replacement for Harris is yet to be announced.
