In their first live performances since 2019, Columbusites Twenty One Pilots had something special planned for their fans at Summerfest 2021. Nearing the end of their set, they performed My Chemical Romance’s 2005 hit “I’m Not Okay (I Promise)” coming out of their own hit “Shy Away.”
The cover is pretty straightforward with little change from the original, but it’s clear the boys knew that their audience would appreciate the cover. Lead vocalist Tyler Joesph leaves plenty of space for the crowd to sing along, and they do with gusto. Check out the cover below.
