Twenty One Pilots Sell Out BB&T Center With Highly-Anticipated Bandito Tour

By: Pedro Heizer

Twenty One Pilots brought their highly-anticipated Bandito Tour to a sold-out BB&T Center on November 4, and the dynamic duo of Josh Dun and Tyler Joseph did not disappoint.

Kicking off the show from atop a burning car – a reference to their music video, Jumpsuit – Joseph delivered an electric performance of their hit-song, Jumpsuit.

The sea of yellow, black, and gray sang back to the duo their songs all night, giving them the needed energy to perform what was one of the most electrifying performances of the tour so far.

“I wish I could take this group everywhere with us,” said Joseph to a roaring crowd during the show.

The band kept the intensity high for three more of their hits, “Levitate”, “Fairly Local”, and “Stressed Out”, before slowing it down for their 2016 hit, Heathens, from the Suicide Squad soundtrack.

Joseph brought back the intensity he’s known for as he asked the crowd to sing the intro to “We Don’t Believe What’s on TV”.

“Alright,” said Joseph. “If you have been to one of our shows you know what to do. If you haven’t, follow the person next to you.”

The crowd started the song with “Yeah, Yeah, Yeah” and the talented singer took it from there.

The band played three more hit songs, “The Judge”, “Lane Boy”, and “Nico and the Niners” before slowing down for ballads on a center stage.

As he was walking over the crowd on a bridge, Joseph asked the sold-out crow to take a seat, as it was something his Grandfather would always ask during his shows, and the duo played their ballads, “Taxi Cab”, “Neon Gravestones”, “Bandito”, and “Pet Cheetah” before heading back to the main stage.

Before closing out the last half of the show, Twenty One Pilots invited back on stage the opening acts, Max Frost and Awolnation, to sing covers of “Iris” by The Goo Goo Dolls, and “Hey Jude” by The Beatles.

“Are you still with us, Sunrise?” asked Joseph as the crowd roared. “Okay then, we will give you everything we got left.”

As they played “My Blood” and “Morph”, Dun had a drum solo in which he was being held up by the fans in a mini version of his drum kit.

The duo closed out the show with “Car Radio”, “Leave the City”, and “Trees” as yellow confetti came raining down from the ceiling.

“This was the best show I have ever gone to,” said Twenty One Pilots fan Christine Sanders as she walked out of BB&T Center. “I didn’t come in with many expectations since it’s very hyped, but this was definitely the best show I’ve gone to in a long time.”

After the conclusion of the Bandito Tour, in support of their number one album, Trench. South Florida fans will have another opportunity to see them in June of 2019 as the duo will be playing at the American Airlines Arena in Miami.
