Twenty One Pilots made a triumphant return to the stage after over a year in London on Wednesday (Sept. 12), kicking off the live segment of their Trench era. Unfortunately, some fans couldn't quite hang for the entirety of the band's show at O2 Academy Brixton.

During the band's performance, the show was halted twice to alert security that there were fans who needed to be removed from the crowd. In some fan footage, lead singer Tyler Joseph can be heard saying, "Security, we have someone in the middle there that needs to come out. If we could try to make a split down the middle for someone back there to the front, please."

About fifteen minutes later, he stops the show again to help another fan, saying, "Security, we have another fan that needs to come out right there."

You can watch both moments unfold at 51:57 and 1:03:10 in the fan-filmed video below. 21P's album Trench is due Oct. 5.
