Twenty One Pilots Forced To Cancel Toronto Show Because Of NBA Finals

When the Toronto Raptors defeated the Milwaukee Bucks to advance to the NBA Finals for the first time in franchise history over the weekend, the city naturally erupted in joy. But local Twenty One Pilots fans may not be as happy. Because of the historic win, the NBA will be needing access to Scotiabank Arena on Wednesday (May 29), which just so happens to be the date of TOP's second Toronto show. Of course, the home team gets priority, so Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun were forced to cancel the show. They broke the news on Sunday (May 26), explaining the circumstances. Ticket holders will receive full refunds, and have access to purchasing a limited number of seats added to the band's May 28 Toronto date.

Check out the tweets below.

The band is currently on its second North American leg of tour and last week treated fans in Vancouver, British Columbia, to the first ever set list that included every song off Trench. Check out their remaining tour dates below.
