The venue, which opens Saturday, has announced an Aug. 24 show featuring Twenty One Pilots, which brings "The Icy Tour" to Belmont Park. The Grammy-Award winning alternative hip-hop/pop group will also play Madison Square Garden Aug. 23 as part of its 23-city tour.

Comprised of rapper-singer Tyler Joseph and drummer Josh Dun, the duo is supporting its latest album, "Scaled and Icy," featuring the hits "Shy Away," "Choker" and "Saturday."
