Twenty One Pilots Performance Cut Short For 'Safety' Reasons

Twenty One Pilots

(TeamRock Radio) Twenty One Pilots had their set at the BBC's Radio 1 Big Weekend cut shot after Tyler Joseph scaled the stage scaffolding. The singer and multi-instrumentalist is known for his climbing antics during the duo's shows. But when he appeared high above the stage over the weekend, drummer Josh Dun was told to stop drumming. Joseph then made his way down before the pair took their stage bow.

Following the event, BBC Radio 1 issued a statement explaining the decision. They tweeted: "The safety of our artists is always our first priority. Sadly we felt there was a risk and had to cut Twenty One Pilots short. We're sad too."

Twenty One Pilots haven't yet commented on the decision. Joseph and Dun head out on a world tour today (May 31) in support of their fourth album Blurryface, which was released last year. Check out video of the incident here.
