Last month, you lot crowned twenty one pilots the year’s Best Live Act at the Kerrang! Awards 2022 – and, several days later, the band proved exactly why at Rock Werchter.

Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun were headlining the main stage of the Belgian festival, bringing their dazzling show to thousands of fans. Already a spectacle in itself – from Tyler jumping off his piano to Josh drumming on top of the crowd – the show then went one step further during Car Radio.

The frontman general scales some sort of platform during the ‘And now I just sit in silence’ ending of the song, but this time he chose to climb right to the top of the Rock Werchter scaffolding. The whole show was streamed online, with Tyler then trending on Twitter for sending viewers into a panic…

As we said, last month twenty one pilots picked up the K! Award for Best Live Act presented by Music Venue Trust, with Josh telling us after collecting their trophy: “When we started out in Columbus, Ohio, we didn’t really know how else to get our name out there. We decided the biggest impact that we could ever have would be through our live show. So we channelled our energy into that. Even now, when people ask the secret to what we do, we tell them that they should focus on putting on a really captivating live show and try to get people to come and bring their friends. People still want to see live music!”

“Live music is the one mode of salvation for any band,” added Tyler. “No matter where you live, you can play shows. You may not be near ‘the industry’, you may not have a connection, you may not know someone who knows someone that can help you get out there and get a record deal. But you can get out there yourself and play live. Everyone has that capability. It’s the great equaliser.”
