The good news for the Toronto Raptors turned into not-so-good news for Twenty One Pilots fans. After Drake’s favorite team punched a ticket to the NBA finals with a thrilling game 6 win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night, 21P were forced to cancel their planned second show at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto.
The venue sent out a tweet informing fans of the change, writing, “Reminder for @twentyonepilots fans: Due to the needs by the league for the technical load-in & set up for the NBA Finals, the concert on 5/29 has been cancelled.”
