The folks behind the Walmart AMP have been busy lately.

The venue just held its final show of the 2015 season last month, and the first shows of the 2016 season have already been announced as well.

Walton Arts Center officials announced that alternative pop band Twenty One Pilots will perform at the venue on Aug. 3 of 2016, and British singer Ellie Goulding will be in town for a show on May 20.

Twenty One Pilots


Twenty One Pilots is best known for their single Tear In My Heart, which climbed as high as No. 2 on the Alternative radio charts. Their new single Stressed Out is currently the No. 3 song on Alternative Radio formats. The band also made headlines recently for already selling out their Madison Square Garden show and adding another for their upcoming headlining tour in 2016.

Tickets to the Twenty One Pilots range from $30-$45, and are now on sale at amptickets.com.

Ellie Goulding broke out in 2010 with her singles Starry Eyed and Guns and Horses, and has continued success since then with pop hits Burn and How Long Will I Love You, among others.

Tickets to Goulding’s show range from $41-$62.50, and go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 6 at amptickets.com.
