Twenty One Pilots Concert Review

This is the best band I have ever seen live! EVER. Twenty One Pilots is an enthusiastic, talented and daring two man band that is packed with entertainment. I asked a friend to go to Bogart’s (A local music venue in Cincinnati) thinking that the band had some good songs and were a somewhat local band that had reasonable ticket prices. Luckily, my friend is a smart music enthusiast and thought to buy the tickets the moment they were on sale. The concert sold out within a few hours after the tickets were available. Bogart’s had to add another night for the band for disappointed fans that didn’t buy their tickets on time. It led to another sold out night for Twenty One Pilots.

I had heard them on 100.7 The Project, a local radio show, but my first encounter with this rowdy band was at Bunbury this past summer. I had initially stopped and watched the band play for a bit, but within 15 minutes of their set I gave into hunger instead and (Stupidly)  went to find a food truck. I missed the moment when a Twenty One Pilots band member climbed the scaffolding and serenaded the audience, but I did manage to see the duo drum off. I felt I had deprived myself, and wanted to see if the band would be as energetic in a closed space. Spoiler: They were.

Twenty One Pilots was formed in 2009 in Columbus Ohio. While there have been members that have joined and left since then, Tyler Joseph has always been a member and founder. It wasn’t until 2011 that current band member Josh Dun joined the group. It’s impressive that a two man band can possess the amount of energy of an orchestra. It was refreshing to see a band that genuinely loved playing and appreciated its fans. I don’t care if I sound biased, this band deserves so much credit.

Each of their songs is different in its own way. There aren’t two songs that sound the same. Their range of different chords and melodies is partially a reason why I love them as much as I do. Their presence however, is what really made me feel like I had a connection to the band. I couldn’t stop smiling.

At one point both band members had a drum off, did flips, played on top of the audience (Yes, you did read that correctly) and decided to converse with us about their amazing behind the scenes management. I couldn’t have been happier with the performance. The stage was visually appealing and the songs were craftily picked to raise the spirits of the crowd little by little. When the concert was over I was sad that I had to go. While I do love concerts, I usually am apt to be happy when things die down. This time I could have stayed for hours. If you get a chance to see this band, please do. You’ll feel incredibly robbed like I did after Bunbury. Sorry about the pictures we were in the balcony and not in the premiere section, the poor man’s section.
