Hey! It’s been like 3 days since Twenty One Pilots show in Moscow but I composed my thoughts completely just now. So, big drama happened around Moscow’s show (Saint-Petersburg show was great btw) and I want you to tell more. We have so many information in russian but so little in English, so…
DISCLAIMER #1: the information about what happened inside the Stadium is 101% true, cause we all were in it and saw what happened by ourselves. But we can’t exactly know what happened behind the scenes and near their tour bus so don’t take this rumors 100% seriously. I just want you to know about them, after you read it you should think by yourself.
DISCLAIMER #2: this information is kinda upsetting so…. Just wanted to say i’m here not to tell you something like “OMG THEY’RE SWEARING AND FIGHTING WITH ORGANIZERS WOW!!”, i’m here to tell you that they care about Clique a lot.
A little disclaimer: sorry for my shitty english!! xxx
Basically, the situation became dire even before the concert. Organization was awful, they treated us like we were a bunch of wild animals. I can write it down right here, but the text is already big. The queue was furious because of rough guards. Then everyone was at the dance floor, the crowd just grew and became more and more tight and airless. I think more than 50 people needed to go away from the crown because conditioners wasn’t working and guards didn’t let nobody bring water. In addition, there were a bunch of EXPENSIVE bars. The water was so expensive, some people hadn’t got so much money with them. I brought like 1000 roubles with myself to buy some merch, but i spent all the money to water because my fren felt so bad all the concert. Basically, one bottle coasted like 250 roubles. You can buy a delicious cake or a big chicken for this money in a normal shop.
The show began. Honestly, it was AMAZING. People around me seemed so happy even if they weren’t big stans. The show was going well, except the moments when crowd needed to hold tyler or josh because everyone in first rows was already tired and exhausted and the crowd even fell and dropped tyler then he tried hamster ball.
Well, the drama began when me and some other people of Clique noticed what they didn’t played Ode to Sleep and Old songs medley. We’ve waited for them patiently but they just played the next songs, so we calmed down a bit. THEN CAR RADIO ENDED. Tyler came back to the stage and they quickly went backstage. The lights turned on and everything like ended? Nothing happened on stage, we just thought it was a break before the last act or some technical issues, but then they turned MY HEART WILL GO ON. And you know, we just sang it because we didn’t know what to do. We spend at about 30 minutes just standing and waiting for something, for sign from stage, but there was NOTHING. Suddenly, the girl near me noticed TØP account’s tweet about bomb threat and I INSTANTLY PANICKED. I’m so afraid of terrorists because i barely became their victim once. So me and my friends ran to the exit but it was closed!!! The guards was rude again, we were screaming at them because they didn’t tell no one to leave the stadium, they just locked us inside and smiled evilly. I even felt myself like a heroine from horror movie, honestly.
They let us go out just 5 minutes later but it was big for people who panicked like me. I ran away from the dance zone, picked up my clothes and went outside. I wasn’t even scared of myself, i really felt for Tyler and Josh.
I left this place forever. I cried all night because this incident. We didn’t hear Goner and Trees, they didn’t say “We are Twenty One Pilots…”, they’re disappeared, an now i know why.
I came home 3 hours later and began to check my feed. What i saw, was kinda unbelievable, but i want to translate it here (this is the most important part of this text tbh):
“My uncle was one of the guards, so he told me some information. I also asked parents who waited their kids near the stadium and they described me the incident. Well, Tyler and Josh were preparing to Goner then guards entered and just banned them from entering the stage again. Tyler wanted to go but nobody allowed him to do it. The crowd started to sing "Truce” and Josh heard this, he was kind of touched, Tyler was happy too. But then shit happened. Guards and organizers literally dragged Tyler and Josh to the exit. Tyler didn’t understand nothing and tried to fight, he tried to rebuff guards and waved his hands. We just know that Jenna was with them.
So, Josh and Tyler went to the street with red eyes. And if Josh could hold his emotions, Tyler couldn’t. He was fully red and he was covering his face with hand. Josh’s makeup was completely blurry, like he cried previously. And Tyler screamed, he screamed and sweared a lot, like “what the fuck are you even doing”. He screamed what organization was the worst and they’re treated us so bad, so Tyler was furious about that. He almost punched the main man, who managed the whole stadium and screamed again. He was soo mad and nobody can calm him down, Jenna tried to take him away and Josh tried to pacify him by telling something. Tyler felt so bad because they had to cut the chow and he thought what some people fans would be disappointed at twenty one pilots. He said he will never perform at this place again and said something like “the next time we’ll meet Russia i will look for good organization and stadium BY MYSELF”. Josh started to lose his temper and just screamed a couple of “good words” to Stadium Live managers. Then, Tyler, Josh and Jenna got in their minibus and showed them the middle finger together"
IDK if it’s true or wrong, but i’ve talked with some Clique members who saw them crying at the minibus, and another girl tells me that there was enough people around them to see and hear them good.
Now all i worry about is Tyler’s and Josh’s feelings and i don’t want them to be sad and crushed about this.
The sad fact is: at the next show his neck and his hands was more blacker than before;)))
