Twenty One Pilots celebrated the release of the deluxe version of their new album Scaled And Icy by announcing the 23-city arena outing, “The Icy Tour 2022,” that launches Aug. 18 at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minn.

Produced by Live Nation, the coast-to-coast tour will also make stops including New York City, Toronto, Nashville and more before wrapping up with a performance at Seattle’s Climate Pledge Arena on Sept. 24.

Twenty One Pilots recently completed an unprecedented “Takeover” tour that saw the band literally take over markets, playing clubs through arenas in each city. Starting in Denver, the band taking up residence in markets including Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston and Atlanta, replicating its ascents in those markets in the span of days.

The “Takeover” concept stemmed from “Tour de Columbus,” a five-show June 2017 run where the band played the Ohio city’s 284-capacity Basement, 1,600-capacity Newport Music Hall, 5,500-capacity Express Live! and each of the two Columbus arenas, Nationwide Arena and Schottenstein Center. The week also included an art exhibition hosted at Nationwide and, all told, the five shows sold nearly 32,000 tickets.

Twenty One Pilots manager Chris Woltman told Pollstar that the “insanely celebratory” week of “Tour de Columbus” always stuck with the band and its team, even if pulling off the format in other markets seemed like a pipe dream under the conventional wisdom of arena and festival touring. The pandemic, however, reoriented what was possible for artists of Twenty One Pilots’ stature.

But it’s back to the arena for Twenty One Pilots, as they return to their more traditional touring model of playing arenas, where they’ve been making their bones since 2016.

 From October 2018 to November 2019, Twenty One Pilots played 116 headlining shows, mostly at arenas, during “The Bandito Tour,” grossing $73.6 million across the 88 shows in Pollstar’s database. On top of that, Twenty One Pilots were festival fixtures, headlining Lollapalooza, Outside Lands and Boston Calling stateside; Leeds, Reading, Pukkelpop, Lowlands and Lollapaloozas Berlin and Paris across the pond; and Lollapaloozas Chile, Argentina and Brazil in South America.
