Twenty One Pilots have never been ones to rest on their laurels. Everything about ‘Blurryface’ saw Tyler and Josh dream bigger, achieve more. From the record, to the live show, they practiced perfection at every turn and time away hasn’t dampened their search for pristine and polished. ‘Trench’ is deeper, more delicate and more deliberate. It only seems right that their Bandito Tour follows suit.
The Regrettes are driven by a similar lust for adventure. There’s not a hint of hesitation as the band take to the expanse of Wembley Arena. From the opening invite of ‘California Friend’, the band are a fizzying flurry of beaming grins, snarling frustration and unwavering self-love. ‘Picture Perfect’ bubbles with the same excitable threat of early Arctic Monkeys while ‘Hey Now’ thrashes with a bursting heart. Closing song ‘Poor Boy’ serves as an everyday reminder “of how special and important” the voices of women are while party poppers and glow stickers light up the room.
