This show won’t be the first time  I DONT KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME and twenty one pilots had some sort of a holiday collab. iDKHOW frontman (and one-time Panic! At The Disco player) Dallon Weekes recorded a Christmas song with twenty one pilots’ Tyler Joseph years ago. 

Back in 2015, Weekes revealed (also via Twitter) that Joseph lent his voice to that special holiday release called “Sickly Sweet Holidays”. Only, the contribution was left off the final song mix due to certain music business considerations, it would seem.

It’d be a dream if they performed it together at this one-off show, but we won’t get our hopes up.
