Well, sort of...



We knew Twenty One Pilots shows can get a bit wild, but things were taken to the next level when the band performed in Ottawa, Canada last month.

CBC News reports that the ceiling of the gym below the TD Place arena had been damaged due to excessive vibrations caused by the 9,000 attending fans.

"According to documents, failures included damaged lighting, speakers and ceiling tiles falling to the floor, and tile support systems buckling, exposing ductwork.​"

The structural engineer that got hired to fix the unsafe building determined that "the damage observed was consistent with that which would be expected of a low-magnitude earthquake."

The ceiling has since been repared and the gym re-opened the Monday following the concert.

Whoa.
