Ian Johnson, the upstate NY-via-LA singer songwriter behind Arrested Youth, is set to join Twenty One Pilots on the first half of their nearly sold out Takeover Tour this fall. The tour is presented in a residency-style format that includes multiple nights in one city, with shows at a different venue each night. Johnson will perform on nine dates, which include some of the tour’s biggest venues: Denver’s Ball Arena, The Forum in Los Angeles and the United Center in Chicago.
The Takeover Tour tour kicks off immediately following Johnson’s own headlining dates in support of his 2021 debut studio release ‘Nonfiction.’ Produced by famed producer and Goldfinger frontman John Feldmann (Blink 182, The Used, Fever 333) and released via Lowly / Big Noise, ‘Nonfiction’ is Johnson’s most autobiographical work to date. Across 15 deeply intimate and relatable tracks, Johnson’s storytelling prowess shines through, as he grapples with personal growth and understanding his true self. The album is highlighted by the pensive coming of age track, “Find My Own Way,” featuring Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus.
Marking the first Arrested Youth concerts in over a year, Johnson’s Nonfiction Tour kicks off on August 17th in Santa Ana, California, and ends September 16th in Phoenix, Arizona. To keep things all in the family, Johnson has just announced Jay Joseph as direct support on his tour. Joseph is the brother of Twenty One Pilots’ frontman, Tyler Joseph, and he will also be a part of the Takeover Tour. Fans at home can tune in to eMusic Live on August 18th to watch a special livestream broadcast of Arrested Youth’s San Diego Music Box concert.
