It may be been a big year for people alt-hip hop duo 21 years old Pilots. In May they will embarked on their biggest travel yet - scheduled to experience 112 dates on about three continents in 11 weeks. Then in June, typically the band released their huge song ‘Heathens’ as the 1st single from the Suicide Group soundtrack. It’s safe to state they’ve been busy.
These are definately not taking their ft . off the gas though, and also tonight at Reading Festivity they played a spectacular demonstrate to thousands of adoring enthusiasts. Here are five of the most amazing moments from their set.
Any time Tyler Joseph went crowd-zorbing
Taking a leaf out of David Coyne and Diplo’s publication, lead vocalist Tyler Ernest hopped into a giant, see-thorugh ball and went for any roll. All over the audience. Check Ride sheet music page.
If Dun did a ridiculous backflip
Not one to let Paul hog the limelight, drummer Josh Dun had a couple of tricks up his drivepipe too. Not only was they wielding demonic red face-paint and drumsticks, but he / she also took the opportunity to exhibit his gym skills. Rising from behind his equipment during chart banger ‘Holding On To You’, he performed a full-360 degree backflip. The crowd lapped up.
When Joseph magically came out on top of a tall plinth
Towards the end of their optimistic set, Twenty One Pilots’ mercurial frontman went crowdsurfing. Midway through set-closer ‘Car Radio’ he disappeared, submerged under a sea of adoring physiques. Then, pitch black. Mere seconds later the lights rise and Joseph appears, forearms outstretched (with a sculpted shirt and lacking one particular shoe) atop a taller plinth in the middle of the masses. Like magic.
When Josh Gloomy crowd-surfed… with his drum set
The levels of ingenuity 21 years old Pilots go to are just incredible. Not content with regular crowdsurfing, muscle-bound drummer Dun desired to take his kit together with him too. Suspended within the crowd on a weird early spring contraption, Dun stayed in the clouds for the duration of poppy ballad ‘Ride’.
When the video screens emerged alive
If you thought often the stunts, tunes and remarkable gymnastics were the only plus side to Twenty One Pilots’ Reading established, then think again. The trippy visuals displayed on the huge screens were a ponder in themselves. At one level, the lights went down, and after that the masked men inside white overalls burst off of the screen and started grooving on stage. All to be able to rapturous applause.
