Jared Leto makes sure everyone at the gig gets on with their performance, getting them involved and singing along even when they're at a festival where not everyone knows their music. This band knows how to put on a good show!

You people really got some problems! How can you miss such a fantastic band. These guys are purely brilliant while in live or studio. Jared Leto has one of the best vocals!

Leto sounds like on the cd live. Who does that really? Jumping into the crowd and surfing? Feels like your part of the damn show!

Come on just look at one of their shows. All 3 members playing their music with a passion, you can't miss things like that!

kurt cobains voice sounds so much better live than in the studio I'd suggest it to anyone getting their unplugged album

Some nights they sucked. Other nights they were amazing. All depends what kind of mood cobain was in.

Watch their performance at the reading festival. It's absolutely beautiful

The lead singer, Tyler Joseph, and the drummer, Josh Dun. At the 2016 American Music Awards, they won two AMAs for Favorite Pop/Rock Artist, and Favorite Alternative Artist. Twenty One more.

I've seen loads of bands live including Green Day and arctic monkeys (both said to be some of the best live bands ever) but Twenty One Pilots put on a whole new show. I've traveled all over the country to see them. Actually all the way to Scotland in February to see them again. They are just incredible and after the show just feels like it was all an amazing dream

Definitely one band everyone should see at least once. Being in the audience is so incredible, words can't explain. Just feeling the energy radiating off their stage is enough of a reason. To say nothing of the actual music, which is all the better live
