Twenty One Pilots Announce 2017 Australian Tour; Playing Arenas
A mere three days after wrapping up their third tour of Australia – the entire 12 dates of which sold out in just a couple of days – Twenty One Pilots have announced yet another jaunt across our fair land. Except this time, they won’t be packing 2,000 capacity theatres full; thanks in no short part to their recent eruption in mainstream radio acceptance, the duo will trash their schizoid pop scorchers out to crowds 20,000+ strong.

The five arena shows (plus two for our Kiwi friends) come as part of the band’s forthcoming Emotional Roadshow package, which was extended last night from a strictly U.S. affair to a full-scale worldwide domination. After stopping by New Zealand to hit Wellington and Auckland, they’ll be making their way through Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney from March 27th to April 1st. They’re also set to hit Perth for the first time on a headline run, too, wrapping up the tour a week later.
The Emotional Roadshow – or Emo Rodeo, as we prefer – will mark Twenty One Pilots’ third time in the country riding on the heels of 2015’s Blurryface. The sophomore effort was released last May via Fueled By Ramen – it was a bit of a sleeper hit, but no doubt is it now considered a present day classic. While nothing official has been stated, the boys have recently teased new music in interviews, so expect a single or two to drop before they hit the stage.
