twenty one pilots are heading back on the road this year for a massive tour. The 2021-2022 Takeøver tour will begin Sept. 21 and travel through the U.S. before taking a brief intermission in November and picking back up for several U.K. dates in June 2022. While tour dates for Mexico City have not yet been announced, the group have shared that dates are coming soon on their tour admat.
Each stop of the tour will feature multiple dates and shows, from intimate venues to large arenas. You can purchase tickets here through Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan platform now. These first-access tickets will be available until 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT on June 19.
The pair headed to Twitter to announce the Takeøver tour with a tweet that read, “we come for you ψ starting this fall. the TAKEØVER TOUR spends one week in each city, moving venue to venue, from the small club to the arena. register for access to tickets at twentyonepilots.com/tour”

Drummer Josh Dun also commented about how he felt in regard to the much-anticipated tour in a press release.
“Wow,” Dun says. “We’re playing shows again. I couldn’t visualize taking another break like we did before Trench, but then we were forced to. Live shows coming back is something I think we’ve all really been waiting for, and we can’t wait to see you again soon.”
The news of an upcoming tour follows the release of twenty one pilots’ latest album, Scaled And Icy. Scaled And Icy was primarily written and produced by lead singer Tyler Joseph at his home studio in Ohio during the COVID-19 pandemic, while Dun was able to expertly engineer his drum sessions from across the country. Despite the difficulties the pair faced over the course of the year, Scaled And Icy pushed them beyond their boundaries to create a collection of music that propels them to the next level of their musical journey.
This will be the first tour for twenty one pilots since the Bandito tour in 2018 after the release of their fifth studio album, Trench. However, it won’t be the first time they’ve played live since the pandemic—well, kind of. To celebrate the release of Scaled And Icy, the duo performed a special “Livestream Experience” May 21.
The livestream featured songs off Scaled And Icy as well as throwbacks from previous releases. The livestream also contained a few set changes, including a snowy winter wonderland. You can watch the duo’s “Shy Away” performance here or below.
