A Street In Columbus, Ohio Has Been Renamed twenty one pilots Boulevard

twenty one pilots’ hometown of Columbus, Ohio has temporarily renamed a street after them.

Ahead of their double bill of shows on the Bandito Tour at Columbus, Ohio’s Nationwide Arena this weekend, twenty one pilots’ hometown has renamed a street near the venue after the band.

While the name-change is only a temporary thing according to Reddit (it will unfortunately go back to Nationwide Blvd afterwards), it’s nevertheless another brilliant achievement for a band who just won’t stop smashing records and scaling incredible new heights.

Tyler and Josh arguably have more suitable song names for streets (Lane Boy Lane, anyone?!), but we’d still happily take a stroll down twenty one pilots Blvd anytime.

Check it out below: 

twenty one pilots will return to the UK this summer to headline Reading & Leeds in August. 

We recently asked Tyler what fans can expect from their debut headline slot at one of the UK’s biggest festivals, and he enthused: 

The culture of music in the UK is something we’ve always looked up to. Some of our favourite performances of festivals and stuff has been over here. In a sense, when you live over in the States, you kind of look over at the UK as a very credible, cool, authentic music scene.

It’s tough to get everything in our live show to translate over into a festival set, but there’s something special about festivals, and something special about being outside, too. And that set is going to be like no other set we’ve ever played. There’s definitely an air of unpredictability, and you don’t really know exactly what to expect. You’d be a fool to assume that everybody is there to watch you – or even know who you are. So there’s a bit of a competitive edge to it, because there’s so many awesome bands on the bill, and so being motivated to rise above that giant pool of talent, and to make your mark, is something that we’re really excited to step up to that challenge. 

The last time we played Reading was one of my favourite sets ever. I did a stage-dive and climbed over the top of 10,000 people, and had a few people pulling on me in the process, but I rather enjoyed it! I thought it was a lot of fun, and the energy was amazing. I can’t wait to do it all over again – we’ll see what happens this time…”
