After twenty one pilots were forced to cancel night two of their Toronto shows due to the Raptors making it to the NBA Finals, the band opened up a few more sections of seats for night one. That wasn’t the only surprise the band had in store for Toronto fans as Tyler Joseph gave the lyrics to “Smithereens” an update following the show cancelation.
Check out the NBA Finals makeover of “Smithereens” below!
On May 26, the band shared the unfortunate news that their second Toronto show would be cancelled due to the NBA Finals.
“congrats @Raptors on making the finals. this means we have to cancel night number two of our toronto shows for the @NBA to have arena access. @TicketmasterCA will be reaching out to night two ticket holders while we try to find more seats for night one.”

During the show, Joseph decided to give the lyrics to “Smithereens” an NBA makeover.
“For you I’d go/Singing this song in Toronto/For you I know/Singing even though they cancelled our show”
