Twenty One Pilots were forced to cut a sold-out concert at Moscow’s Sokol Music Hall short on Saturday night (October 22nd) due to an alleged bomb threat. According to Team Rock, the duo were warned by Moscow police during the gig that they could be in danger. In a now-deleted tweet, they wrote, “Moscow, that was such an amazing show. The police cut our set a couple songs short because of a bomb threat. We are safe. You be safe.”
- The band later wrote, “We can’t believe we get to play our music in Russia. We’re so proud. Moscow was amazing.” The message made no reference made to the scare. It is unclear how police were informed of the threat.
- The pair are currently on a European leg of their world tour in support of their most recent studio album, Blurryface, which topped the Billboard album chart in May 2015 and has yielded the hits “Stressed Out” and “Ride.”
- Twenty One Pilots next plays in Stockholm, Sweden on Thursday night (October 27th) and wraps up this trip on November 17th in Paris. A North American trek begins on January 17th, 2017 in Providence, Rhode Island.
