Twenty One Pilots
Thursday 9 July 2015
Live Nation are thrilled to announce ascendant pop duo TWENTY ONE PILOTS have confirmed headline shows in Australia and New Zealand this July.
The band will play an ALL AGES show at The Powerstation, Auckland, on Thursday July 9.
Today’s tour announcement coincides with the release of band’s eagerly awaited second studio album, Blurryface (Warner Music), the follow up to their wildly successful debut, Vessel.
Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun take their explosive mix of hip-hop, indie rock and punk to the next level on Blurryface, crafting soaring melodies and vast sonic landscapes throughout the record.
Twenty One Pilots have grown astronomically since the release of their debut record. The band’s 2014 “quiet is violent tour” reached sold out audiences throughout the US, Europe and Asia – including triumphant main-stage appearances at festivals such as Bonnaroo, Sasquatch and Bunbury.
Fans in New Zealand were first treated to Twenty One Pilots’ electrifying live show when the pair toured with Paramore in 2014, wowing audiences with their performances in Auckland and Christchurch.
Twenty One Pilots’ meteoric rise since the release of Vessel saw the band named #1 in Alternative Press’ 10 Essential Albums of 2013, MTV Artist To Watch, and unforgettable live performances at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards, Late Night With Seth Meyers and the 1st annual AP Music Awards.
Don’t miss your chance to take in this emergent force in American pop.
