Will’s Twenty One Pilots Concert Experience
Last night was an experience I will never forget.
Twenty One Pilots' Emotional Roadshow finally came to Bozeman at the Brick Breeden Fieldhouse, and it was amazing. I was not only surprised but overwhelmed by the support from all the fans that came out to the show to support. This was my first-ever concert at the Brick and I wasn't let down in the slightest.
Let's get to the good stuff though: what I thought about the show.
I didn't really know much about the first opener of the night, Judah and The Lion. After last night, I want to see them again and jam out to their music. They are all from Tennessee and are different from any band I have ever seen. The important part about them, though, is they get the crowd involved and make sure that the audience is having just as great a time as they are.
Next up was Jon Bellion. I knew a little about Jon before last night. Jon currently has a Top 10 hit with All Time Low and has written some huge songs for other artists. Jon came out and couldn't believe how everyone in the crowd was loud and getting just as crazy as he was. Jon said that this audience was the most "turnt" (meaning hyped up/excited) that they have seen so far. I don't know if he was lying or being honest, but everyone cheered loudly.
Then, the grand finale. Twenty One Pilots came on with their first song HeavyDirtySoul and everyone was going crazy and then the song ended and everything went black. Everything just stopped. People were wondering what was going on. Then Daniel, their production manager, got on the mic and let everyone know they experienced power failure with their LCD screens. I could understand, this show was entertainment on all levels. This took about 15 minutes but then the show started back up.
Tyler and Josh were nonstop from song to song and interacted with the crowd. From performing while being held up in the air or running in a giant inflatable ball, they looked like they were having the time of their lives, and so was everyone in the field house. They performed over 20 songs last night and it felt like it went by in minutes.
One thing that stuck out was that every band said this was their first time in Montana, and they couldn't believe how crazy/fun we were. I think we made a great impression.
I hope that these types of shows can be successful here in Bozeman and we start getting more and more artists like this to come here. I also hope that Twenty One Pilots will come back too because from the looks on their faces they want to come back sooner rather than later.
