This is literally out of control.

There were chaotic scenes yesterday (Jun 22) before a Twenty One Pilots homecoming show in Columbus, Ohio, as fans surged into the street - running into oncoming traffic - to queue to get into the show.

Twenty One Pilots started a sold out five-night run of shows in their hometown of Columbus this week. On the third show, the band performed at EXPRESS LIVE!, an outdoor amphitheatre.

As reported by Alt Press, the venue does not allows fans to camp overnight before shows. Undeterred, fans camped across the street and in nearby parks. When queuing became officially authorised at 6am, fans in the nearby streets flocked into the street and ran into traffic to get to the front of the queue.

Fans have been posting clips of the incident on social media.

 

As you can see in the videos, the police are quick to intervene to try to establish some sense of order. Many are criticising the venue and promotion company for allowing the situation to happen in the first place.

 

 

 

 

Stay safe out there guys!
