Twenty One Pilots spent more than seven months planning, rehearsing and building the elaborate livestream that beamed out on Friday night (May 21). The hour-long event showcasing most of their new album, Scaled and Icy, incorporated more than half a dozen Broadway-style sets arrayed on the floor of their hometown Columbus, Ohio, arena -- the Schottenstein Center -- as well as roping in a full band to augment their usual two-man set-up, a troupe of dancers, a retro 1970s storyline and some fancy footwork from singer Tyler Joseph.
The show was a massive undertaking that included an interactive web experience featuring a live Q&A with the band -- anchored by drummer Josh Dun -- as well as a spot to upload fan art, exclusive, never-before-seen footage of the duo, a 3D maze filled with Joseph's hand-written Icy lyrics and dozens of other rabbit holes for The Skeleton Clique to go down in the weeks leading up to the event.
