Twenty One Pilots Cut Russian Concert Short Due to Alleged Bomb Threat
Twenty One Pilots recently performed for the first time in Russia, but the experience was marred by the threat of violence...we think.
On Saturday, after playing Sokol Music Hall, the band tweeted, "Moscow, That was such an amazing show. The police cut our set a couple songs short because of a bomb threat. We are safe. You be safe." But according to the New York Daily News, that tweet was later deleted.
Then, the duo's Tyler Joseph posted another message, reading, "Josh [Dun] and I can't believe we get to play our music in Russia. So proud. Moscow was amazing. St. Petersburg tomorrow."
It's possible that the bomb threat was not serious. One fan later tweeted, "apparently the threat was fake. that's why the tweet was deleted. from what everyone inside is saying, everyone is safe." Another one replied, "fake or not. people were scared. that's awful."
