Twenty øne Piløts made the Little Rock stop of The Emøtiønal Røadshøw tour at the Verizon Arena on Mar. 3. Many current and former MHS students attended the event. The tour began on May 31, 2016, in Cincinnati, Ohio and is scheduled to finally come to a close on April 8 in Perth, Australia.

Fans began waiting in line for the show as early as two days prior to the event in hopes of snagging a front row spot. With opening acts Judah & the Lion and Jon Bellion, the well illustrated show was bound to be an incredible one.

Judah & the Lion, a folk style group, kicked off the show with an energizing set, including a comedic cover of a T-Pain song and a more recognizable cover of “Mr. Brightside” by My Chemical Romance that many attendees sang along to. Jon Bellion, a singer, rapper, songwriter, and producer, accompanied by friend and fellow artist Travis Mendes, followed the edgy act with a more hip hop and R&B vibe, which included his chart topping hit “All Time Low.” By the time Jon exited the stage, the suspense in the arena was difficult to bear. Near silence filled the building in the final moments of the wait before Josh Dun and Tyler Joseph finally made their appearance on the stage. Screams of eager and restless fans filled the air as the curtain dropped, revealing the talented musicians. The duo donned matching red suits with their signature black ski masks, a look recognizable to any followers of their previous performances. They sang hits such as “Ride,” “Stressed Out,” “Tear in My Heart,” and “Heathens.” The remainder of the show consisted of four outfit changes, a dissappearing act, and a human hamster ball. By the time the artists left the stage, fans were literally left dumbfounded…or sobbing.

As frequent concert attendees, we STRONGLY recommend going to their next Little Rock or Dallas stop on their (likely) 2018 or 2019 tour. We have altogether seen more than 35 artists, ranging from small acts like Jacob Whitesides and Shawn Mendes, all the way up to having front row for Selena Gomez’s Revival tour, and we can easily say that Twenty One Pilots’ Emotional Roadshow tour was by far the best. Their stage presence and ability to incorporate the crowd into their performance was phenomenal.

For a couple of accounts of our view and experience of the show, https://youtu.be/WP7bResvBj8 & https://youtu.be/fE3Je2ctBlQ are links of videos that we personally recorded.
