MisterWives, an American pop-indie band, opened for Twenty One Pilots.
MisterWives was formed in 2012 by lead singer Mandy Lee, bassist William Hehir and drummer Etienne Bowler.
This is the second tour that MisterWives has opened for Twenty One Pilots.
Twenty One Pilots is a musical duo consisting of Josh Dun (left) on the drums and Tyler Joseph (right) as the lead singer. The two first appear on top of an old car, silently standing there as the crowd erupts into cheers.
Dun jumps down from the car holding a torch to find his drum set.
The Friday night performance was the band's first time playing at the Staples Center.
The band is on the last American leg of ''The Bandito Tour'' for its album ''Trench.''
Dun wears a yellow bandana and yellow duct tape on his sweatshirt, a symbol from the fictitious world of Dema and Trench that was referenced throughout Twenty One Pilots' latest album.
Twenty One Pilots was formed in 2009 by Joseph along with two other partners who have since left the band.

Joseph pulls out a tambourine after finishing the second song, ''Levitate.''
Dun joined the band in 2011 as the drummer.
Joseph wears a full face ski mask, a signature look the band has made for itself.
Joseph plays a variety of instruments such as bass, keys and ukulele throughout the show.
The show incorporated many theatrical stunts and audience participation.
Jospeh reveals his face for the first time, tearing off his mask in front of the crowd.
A fiery display goes off as they perform ''Heavydirtysoul,'' the first track from their hit album ''Blurryface.''
The small basement band from Columbus, Ohio, has since garnered world recognition and a Grammy Award for best pop duo/group performance.
