Twenty One Pilots coming to Amalie Arena in Tampa

Get ready, Clique.

It's been less than a year since Twenty One Pilots last played Tampa Bay, but they've already booked a return trip on the just-announced fall leg of their Bandito Tour. The Grammy-winning alternative duo will return to Amalie Arena on Oct. 9, the venue just announced.

Tickets start at $35.75 and go on sale at 10 a.m. July 19. Don't sleep on them, because as we've seen in the past, Tampa's a pretty crazy market for Tyler Joseph and Joshua Dun. Their last concert here, in November, sold out in hours, with Amalie officials announcing, then reversing, a no-early-lines wristband policy for GA floor access.

It was just the latest date in a short but passionate love affair between Twenty One Pilots and Tampa fans, who've turned out in force to see them at an increasingly larger series of venues throughout the years.

The new Tampa date is the first on Twenty One Pilots' fall North American leg. The way things are going, who would bet against them coming back a third time on this tour?
