One of the most hotly tipped bands around the globe right now, Columbus Ohio’s Twenty One Pilots, have announced that they’ll be coming back to the UK for a headline tour in the winter, kicking off in Glasgow on the 4 November. The tour includes shows in Manchester, Birmingham, Oxford and London’s O2 Shepherds Bush Empire on Friday 6 November.
The guys are currently in the UK for a run of four intimate sold out gigs (they sold out within minutes) including what is sure to be a jaw-dropping show at Electrowerkz this Thursday 14th May. The shows come in support of the imminent release of their sophomore album BLURRYFACE, released on 18 May.
The last year has seen this genre-defying two piece grow astronomically in only one album cycle. From playing tiny club shows to main stage festival appearances – in the US alone, they have sold upwards of 80,000 tickets for their September headline tour. Their YouTube channel alone has clocked up more than 68 million views! Their live show has become renowned, the energy they bring on stage – purely electrifying, the ability to involve every single fan in the show and make it an experience they’ll never forget. This is just one of the reasons Twenty One Pilots are light years ahead of their contemporaries and not only that but a band that’s only on their second album! There is a definitely a bright future ahead for these two…. Stay tuned!
