Columbus, Ohio’s Twenty One Pilots made their triumphant return to Toronto last week on their Bandito Tour in support of the 2018 album Trench, the follow-up to 4x Platinum 2015 album Blurryface. Prior to the highly anticipated sold out show at Scotiabank Arena, Warner Music Canada surprised the band with Gold plaques for Trench and its singles “Chlorine,” “Jumpsuit,” and “My Blood.”
Amidst an extensive world tour that will find them on the road through 2017, alternative hip hop duo Twenty One Pilots were in Toronto, ON last week for a sold-out show at the Molson Canadian Amphitheater. Prior to their performance, the band was presented with custom award plaques by Warner Music Canada signifying the Triple Platinum certification of their single “Stressed Out,” and the Platinum certification of the 2015 album Blurryface. The album also features the Gold single “Tear In My Heart.”
Earlier this Spring, the band toured through Canada beginning with two nights at Montreal, QC’s Metropolis, and wrapping up with two nights at Vancouver, BC’s Queen Elizabeth Theatre. The band will return to Canada in September for appearances at Edmonton, AB’s Sonic Boom Festival, and Calgary, AB’s X-Fest.
The video for the breakout Triple Platinum track “Stressed Out” can be viewed below.
