Twenty One Pilots: The Bandito Tour

On Saturday Nov. 10, Twenty One Pilots played a sold-out show at The Forum in Inglewood, CA. The band, which is made up of Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun, originated in Ohio, but have made their way to Los Angeles after years of success.

The night started with an opening performance by Max Frost and Awolnation, which only led to the anticipation of the main event. Twenty One Pilots opened their set with their debut song “Jumpsuit” from their newest album Trench, and proceeded with the infamous “Stressed Out” and “Heathens.” Halfway through their set, the band made their way to the B-stage by a sky bridge and allowed the crowd to sit while they performed piano versions of songs across their five albums. They also performed their renditions of “Iris” by the Goo Goo Dolls and “Hey Jude” by The Beatles before the night was over.

The band finished their set with their well-known tradition of shooting confetti cannons into the general admission section, while Joseph and Dun play bass drums on platforms held up by the crowd. As the night came to an end, I couldn’t help but notice the diversity in age and appearance of the fans, and how the room had been transformed into a space for every type of person. It had become a place where those who don’t feel like they belong, could, even if only for a few hours.
