Fans support Twenty One Pilots’ Tyler Joseph following crowd surfing incident

August 27 2016, 1:54 AM EDT By Tyler Sharp

Twenty One Pilots frontman Tyler Joseph had his shirt ripped apart by attendees while crowd surfing during the band’s Reading And Leads Festival performance. 

Towards the end of “Car Radio,” he left the stage and began crowd surfing towards a platform in the pit area. Nearly two-and-a-half minutes passed until he reached the stand, but not before he had his shirt torn to pieces and mask removed by those in attendance.

Once atop the platform, Joseph soon said, “We gotta be done. Josh that’s it. We gotta be done.” It remains unconfirmed whether that was the show’s scheduled end time or if it was cut short on account of what took place.
