Passion, energy in live performance impress student
Two men. One band. Tyler Joseph (singer) and Josh Dun (drummer) form the band Twenty One Pilots.
Originating from Columbus, Ohio, the best friends have been travelling the world, sharing their inspirational music and having fun.
On Sept. 11, I got to experience the absolutely phenomenal concert in person. Joseph and Dun put on the best show I have ever been to.
The two men started off the show wearing ski masks, their signature look. The masks signify everyone is afraid and may need to mask their insecurities, but once comfortable, that mask can be taken off, which is exactly what the performers do while singing.
Joseph kept the audience enticed by jumping off his piano and levels of the stage multiple times and climbing into the crowd, only being held up by the audience’s hands, and continuing to perform his song “Car Radio.”
Dun also made his way into the mosh pit, playing the drums on a platform held up by their fans.
The finale consisted of the duo coming back into the audience on platforms, playing drums and interacting with the crowd.
After the final note of the final song, confetti and smoke erupted from the stage, while Joseph and Dun stayed held up in the crowd with their drumsticks held in the air triumphantly.
I have never had a night like this.
The band did not just come on stage, sing their songs and leave.
They talked to their fans, actually interacting with us by, literally, going into the audience and performing right at our sides.
Tyler Joseph and Joshua Dun perform their songs with such passion and devotion and they made their audience feel that way.
Each musical note that came from Tyler’s mouth dripped with sincerity and conviction.
When Twenty One Pilots makes their way back to Ohio, I would recommend anyone to go.
It is a night you will never forget.
