Defying genre, subverting convention, smashing records, and redefining the sound of a generation, GRAMMY® Award-winning Twenty One Pilots emerged as one of the most successful bands of the 21st century and a perennial game-changer. The duo ascended to a creative and critical high watermark on their 2018 fifth full-length album, Trench. Among a collection of anthems, it spawned three gold singles: “Chlorine,” “Nico and the Niners,” and the GRAMMY® Award-nominated “Jumpsuit.”
Following a show-stopping performance at the American Music Awards, the album graced spots on coveted year-end lists by Billboard, iHeartRadio, KERRANG!, Alternative Press, and Rock Sound—who placed it at #1. To support Trench, the pair launched the Banditø Tour, selling out arenas across the world, headlining global festivals, and moving one million-plus tickets. In 2020, they released the gold-selling smash “Level of Concern.” After breaking into the Top 25 on the Billboard Hot 100 and capturing #1 on Alternative Radio for 12 consecutive weeks, the song set a new Guinness World Record™ for “the longest music video,” with the groundbreaking regenerative visual consisting of content from 16,000-plus user submissions drawn into the video in real-time live on YouTube. They also garnered “Favorite Artist – Alternative Rock” at the American Music Awards. Everything has bulldozed a path for their anxiously awaited new full-length, Scaled And Icy, released worldwide this past Friday.
Formed in 2009, the duo grinded towards this moment following the mainstream breakout of 2015’s Blurryface. Certified quadruple-platinum in the U.S., it sold seven million copies worldwide and garnered the band a GRAMMY® Award in the category of “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance” for the Diamond-certified “Stressed Out.”
COTA is anticipating this year's USGP to be one of the biggest race weekend experiences ever. The track is already seeing record-setting sales and unprecedented demand for this year's United States Grand Prix, with sales for the 2021 race weekend outpacing 2019's sold-out race. With all reserved seat inventory sold out in the first week of being on-sale, COTA will be adding the following ticket options:
- Turn 2 Grandstands — The perfect spot to watch drivers' descent from the 133-foot Turn 1 as they dive straight into the winding esses of Turns 3 and 4
- Turn 4 Bleachers — A fan-favorite location that provides an amazing view of COTA’s signature esses and iconic stars and stripes
