twenty one pilots Have Announced A Free Show
While we’ve all had plenty of chances to enjoy twenty one pilots on their incredible Bandito Tour across the world over the past few months, the band have now just announced a special one-off gig – and it’s free!
The Ohio duo will be hitting Cleveland alongside The Killers for a baseball-themed festival, Play Ball Park. The event will take place from July 5-6, with Tyler and Josh performing on the first night, and The Killers on the second. Ace!
Tickets are available at this link from June 5 at 1pm local time.
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…”
