The Bandito Tour

TAIT brings Twenty One Pilots Stage to new heights for the Bandito Tour. For the tour, TAIT manufactured and engineered custom staging and automation solutions including a 40 ft. x 60 ft. main stage fashioned with three stage lifts and a 14 ft. x 25 ft. b-stage furnished with two prop lifts.

Two of the main stage lifts were used to lift drummer, Josh Dun, and singer, Tyler Joseph, 12 ft. above the stage. The third main stage lift was used to bring a car spewing flames to stage level. When performing on their b-stage in the middle of the arena, TAIT’s prop lifts brings a drum kit and piano to stage level. All stage lifts were programmed and operated by TAIT Navigator.

Twenty One Pilot shows are notorious for pit gags where Dun and Joseph rely on their fans to support them as they surf the crowd on a lightweight platform and perform. Additionally, TAIT supplied the band with two ultra-light stage platforms for their immersive pit gags.
