Columbus duo invites fans to "join us where it all began"
UPDATE: Twenty One Pilots add Nationwide Arena concert to Tour De Columbus
A month after Josh Dun and Tyler Joseph of Columbus-born duo Twenty One Pilots accepted their first Grammy award in their underwear (winning for the song "Stressed Out," off the band's triple-platinum 2015 album Blurryface), the bandmates announced a trifecta of hometown shows to celebrate Twenty One Pilot's humble Ohio beginnings.
The duo will perform at three PromoWest venues three nights in a row: the Basement on Tuesday, June 20; the Newport on Wednesday, June 21, and Express Live on Thursday, June 22. "Join us where it all began," the band tweeted this morning.
Twenty One Pilots also tweeted a video, which describes in detail a ticket-purchase process that is designed to "beat the bots and screw the scalpers." According to the video's British narrator, it'll work like this:
Tickets are only available through the "Twenty One Pilots Fan Ticket Opportunity, powered by Ticketmaster Verified Fan. To register for your chance to receive a code to purchase a pair of tickets to the participating show of your choice, go to www.twentyonepilots.com." Register for a Ticketmaster account, then enter your name, phone number, email and zip code and the show or shows you'd like to attend. One entry per person, ages 13 years and older.
Registration closes at 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, March 28. On Wednesday, March 29, at 5 p.m., randomly selected fans will receive a unique code via text message, which they'll then use at Ticketmaster. After an hour, any unused codes will be voided, and more unique codes will be texted out to other randomly selected fans. Tickets will be will-call only (bring your ID) and non-transferable.
