Twenty One Pilots Explain The Flip

(Radio.com) Fans should expect two things when they see Twenty One Pilots play live. One, they're going to give it everything they've got. Two, drummer Josh Dun is going to do a backflip.

Dun is definitely not a trained gymnast and told Radio.com the first time he tried to do a back flip at a show in their hometown of Columbus, Ohio, he needed a spotter. He wanted to impress his friends, but Dun joked that having to ask for their help kind of made it a lot less impressive.

The first time Dun did it, with help from bandmate Tyler Joseph, he landed on his knees. The second time, though, he stuck the landing, but it wasn't until the band played their biggest hometown show that the flip became a live performance staple.

"Like a week leading up to that show, most of the time of rehearsal was trying to nail this back flip," Dun said.

Joseph interjected, "We didn't really rehearse our songs." more on this story
