Twenty One Pilots made their way to House of Blues, in the heart of downtown Chicago, IL on October 13th 2021. Luckily for fans the rain had stopped a couple hours before the show giving people plenty of time to get ready in a line that was wrapped around and down Dearborn street for a couple blocks. All of which had proof of vaccines and/or were masked up for the duration of the show. Once the crowd was let in, House of Blues was no doubt sold out with concert-goers packed into the venue shoulder to shoulder.
To prepare the restless crowd, the openers were Arrested Youth and Half Alive. Both of came out and put on a good quick show to get the crowd going.
Then the moment came, Twenty One Pilots walked to the center of the stage in their black ski masks with some shiny googles ready to give the crowd what they had been waiting for. Twenty One Pilots started the show off nice and calm with “Good Day, Dema” then progressed into “No Chances.” They then went to one of their most popular songs and dropped the house with “Stressed Out.” One of the things I loved about their performance was their versatility. Their ability to switch some of their heavier songs to a peaceful song on a ukulele and their ability to cover classics like “Benny and the Jets” and “Hey there Delilah” is unmatched.
Be sure to grab some tickets while you still can for their current Takeover Tour which heads next to Boston, Columbus and Atlanta.
