Guest video review: Twenty One Pilots, Portsmouth Guildhall

A note from altrocklife: Hi guys! Unfortunately I was unable to catch Twenty One Pilots on their Blurryface tour, but my fellow Bournemouth University student Hollie Wong from The Cinema Planet reported back from the venue about their performance.

American rock duo Twenty One Pilots performed to a sold out audience of screaming fans at the Portsmouth Guildhall last week.

The Columbus-born band, formed of singer, pianist and guitarist Tyler Joseph and drummer Josh Dun, closed the European leg of their Blurryface tour in the Southern city.

The duo was supported by LA four-piece Transviolet who readied the crowds with their electro-pop melodies.

With a dedicated following, queueing spanned what seemed like miles outside of the Guildhall and inside the atmosphere was no less electric.

The pair took to the stage, first performing their opening track, HeavyDirtySoul, from their third album, Blurryface. They went on to play a number of popular tracks including Holding on to You, Guns for Hands and recent Radio 1 Track of the Day, Stressed Out.

The group put on an incredible show for their adoring fans, particular highlights include the duo crowd surfing and playing drums on boards supported by the audience and lead singer Joseph appearing in the crowd during a brilliant rendition of Car Radio.

Twenty One Pilots certainly know how to put on a show; this up-and-coming duo are ready to crack the UK and after this unbelievable tour nothing stands in their way.
