On Halloween night, the indie pop/electro pop/alternative hip hop band Twenty One Pilots played a sold out show at Chaifetz Arena, thus concluding their 2015 Blurryface tour and commemorating the release of the duo’s fourth album.

Opening the show with leading album songs “Heavydirtysoul” and “Stressed Out,” lead singer Tyler Joseph, brought an upbeat effect to the concert, and got the crowd even further energized when Joseph began singing from a microphone hung from the ceiling; an iconic image from the “Fairly Local” music video.

Twenty One Pilots continued their energy with songs from their 2011 album, Vessel, like “Migraine,” “Guns for Hands,” and “House of Gold,” after which the crowd chanted ‘Josh Dun!’ giving drummer Josh Dun an opportunity to do a traditional beat to which his bandmate danced to.

The band originally formed in 2009 out of Columbus, Ohio, Joseph and his college friends Nick Thomas and Chris Salih. After releasing their self-titled album, Thomas and Salih left the band due to busy schedules mid-2011, and were then replaced by Dun. Joseph and Dun then released albums Regional At Best (‘11), Vessel (‘12), and their most recent, Blurryface (‘15).

After pulling out smaller, more condensed versions of their instruments, the duo revisited their older works with a medley of songs from the older three albums such as “Addict With a Pen,” “Screen,” “Forest” and others from the albums.

They then closed their show with “Car Radio” as Joseph crossed the floor and made his way to to a steel pillar in the back of the room which he climbed to end the final rap of the song and their official performance.
However, after the crowd chanted for an encore, Joseph and Dun came out and performed the closing album song “Goner” during which fans held up signs supporting the Few the Proud the Emotional movement started by the band’s clique.
