Twenty One Pilots announced online they're "coming home", planning three nights of shows in Columbus.

The Grammy award-wining band has been touring in support of their album BlurryFace since 2015, and say they wanted to celebrate the end of the touring with their hometown fans.

They will be playing shows at The Basement on June 20th, the Newport Music Hall on June 21st, and Express Live on June 22nd.

In a video posted on their website, the band said they've set up a special ticketing process to keep scalpers from buying the tickets. Fans will have to register with a Ticketmaster fan account, then register for a chance to get tickets before midnight Tuesday March 28th.

Entrants will be chosen at random, and if your name is chosen you will get a text message with a code to buy tickets. The band says all the tickets will also be non-transferable so people won't be able to sell them at higher prices online.
