If you’ve been stressed out (overused joke, we know) about not being able to see Twenty One Pilots, you’re in luck. On Oct. 22, the Columbus, Ohio-based duo will stop at U.S. Bank Arena as part of the extended fall leg of their “Banditø Tour.” The band released the dates after completing the summer leg of the tour, which featured many shows that sold out within hours of tickets going on sale.
There is a special pre-sale opportunity for tickets for Twenty One Pilots' Cincinnati return. To avoid "scalpers (and) bots," the group teamed with Ticketmaster's Verified Fan platform to offer tickets beginning July 16 at 10 a.m. Register between now and July 14 to get a code.
Remaining tickets will go on sale Friday, July 19 at 10 a.m. via ticketmaster.com.
Known for songs like “Car Radio,” Stressed Out” and “Ride,” Twenty One Pilots — which is comprised of singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Tyler Joseph and drummer Josh Dun — released their latest album, Trench, in 2018. On its most recent tour dates, concert setlists have included a majority of the new album, some oldies and several cult classics.
In addition to the tour, the band has been releasing alternative, stripped-back versions of songs from Trench. The tracks in the “Løcatiøn Sessiøns” series include different latitude and longitude coordinates that indicate where the song was recorded. The debut session, “Chlorine (19.4326° N, 99.1332° W)," was recorded in Mexico City. The just-released “Cut My Lip (40.6782° N, 73.9442° W)” was recorded in Brooklyn.
After the massive success of 2015's Blurryface, the band broke new boundaries with Trench. According to a press release, in its first week, the album sold 75,000 units and garnered over 52 million on-demand audio streams, which marked "the largest streaming week (ever) in the U.S. for a rock album.” “Jumpsuit," the first song on the album, reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart and earned the duo their fourth Grammy nomination
