Josh Dun from Twenty One Pilots says he loves to take chances when it comes to performing live

Twenty One Pilots are gearing up for the winter leg of their Emotional Roadshow tour. What should fans expect for the alternative pop band’s upcoming trek? The band says the shows will be elaborate.

“I think fans want a show,” drummer Josh Dun said in an interview with the Hartford Courant. “I’ve always felt that way. We’ve done whatever it takes to entertain. I’ve played in a gorilla costume. It goes back to the days when you’re playing bars and there are only a handful people there and half of them are talking with each other. Every time I do a back flip off of the piano, it’s fun for me and it’s something different for the audience.”

He added that singer Tyler Joseph “and I love to take chances. We’re up for anything to make the show better.”

The tour will have Twenty One Pilots performing at arenas around America, such as the United Center in Chicago, the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and the American Airlines Arena in Dallas. Go big, or go home, right? They’re touring behind their 2015 album “Blurryface,” which features the popular radio singles “Ride” and “Stressed Out.”

“It’s amazing how well we’re doing,” Dun says. “We love having the fans we have. But the most important thing is to push ourselves. We’re constantly coming up with new ideas. We don’t want to make the same album over and over again.”

“We have so much more music to make,” he adds.

Twenty One Pilots’ winter Emotional Roadshow tour begins January 17 in Providence, Rhode Island and will conclude March 5 in Louisville, Kentucky.
