TWENTY ØNE PILØTS EMØTIØNAL RØADSHØW FRIDAY, JULY 15, 2016 AT 7 P.M.
LAS VEGAS (October 26, 2015) – Fueled By Ramen recording group Twenty One Pilots will return to the U.S. this summer for a massive headline tour. The “EMØTIØNAL RØADSHØW” tour will see the band bring their explosive live show to The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas on Friday, July 15, 2016 at 7 p.m. The summer-long trek includes the chart topping duo’s biggest headlining shows in North America to date. Tickets go on sale Friday, October 30 at 10 a.m.
Twenty One Pilot’s current “Blurryface Tour” has proven to be a phenomenal success with all dates swiftly selling out. Highlights from the road include a stunning two-night stand at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom, capacity crowds at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheater and Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre, and a victorious homecoming performance at Columbus, Ohio’s Schottenstein Center. Furthermore, 2015 has also seen the duo of Tyler Joseph (vocals/piano) and Josh Dun (drums) performing top-billed sets at Las Vegas’ Life Is Beautiful, Austin, Texas’ ACL Music Festival and Chicago’s Lollapalooza where Rolling Stone declared the band to be among the “40 Best Things We Saw At Lollapalooza,” writing “(Twenty One Pilots) has succeeded as much as any band in recent history when it comes to over-inclusion. By trying on nearly everything in the pop-music spectrum (as well as nearly every form of headgear), (Tyler) Joseph and Josh Dun yielded huge, if unlikely, success.”
What’s more, the group recently performed “Tear In My Heart” at the 2015 MTV European Music Awards where they also received a nomination for “Best Alternative.” The monumental performance can be viewed at http://tv.mtvema.com/video/mediabus-fcs-flow/hxxzi0.
Meanwhile, following the massive success of their No. 2 Alternative radio smash “Tear In My Heart,” Twenty One Pilots’ new single “Stressed Out” is rapidly climbing the Alternative radio chart. The track which is currently No. 3 at Alternative Radio has earned more than 28 million streams thus far while its companion video – directed by the band’s longtime collaborators at Reel Bear Media (“Fairly Local,” “Lane Boy,” “Car Radio,” “Guns For Hands”) – has scored over 23 million views and counting at Twenty One Pilots’ official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/watch?v=pXRviuL6vMY.
“BLURRYFACE” – which follows Twenty One Pilots’ 2013 Fueled By Ramen debut, “VESSEL” – made a stunning chart debut upon its arrival earlier this year, entering the SoundScan/Billboard 200 at No. 1 with total sales exceeding 147,000 and affirmed the duo as an international breakthrough, reaching the top 5 in Canada as well as the top 20 in Australia, Ireland, New Zealand and the U.K.
