Twenty One Pilots Get Street Named After Them For Hometown Shows

After being on tour for the better part of a year, Twenty One Pilots are finally gearing up to wrap up their massive Bandito world tour, and they're saving their hometown of Columbus, Ohio for last. Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun plan to play a pair of shows at Nationwide Arena this weekend (June 29 and 30), and the city is showing them some major love by renaming Nationwide Boulevard to Twenty One Pilots Boulevard. Though the change is most likely temporary, it's still quite a big honor for the duo.

The road name isn't the only thing that's changed in Columbus. According to fans on Twitter, a restaurant will also be opening up temporarily called Ned's Bayou.

Check out a photo of the new street sign (painted that signature TOP yellow) below.

During a recent show in San Antonio, Texas, Tyler caught a glimpse of a fan holding up a homemade Ned doll and asked if he could have it to give to his 1-year-old niece. We can't wait to see what's in store for the hometown crowd later this month.

Though their arena shows will be down after this weekend, TOP will also be making an appearance at San Francisco's Outside Lands Festival in August. Check out their remaining tour dates below.
