Australian pop-rock band 5 Seconds of Summer is currently touring the U.S., but in light of their new album, set to drop this summer, the band announced a new tour across North America this August.
Currently, the band is on their sold-out spring 5SOS3 tour, making stops in cities like Chicago, Nashville, and San Diego, but will wrap up at the end of the month on April 27. Then, after a short break, the “Meet You There Summer Tour” will kick-off on August 27 in Toronto, Ontario. This 25-date tour will run through the fall, wrapping up on October 12 in Los Angeles, California.
Their 2014 debut self-titled album stole hearts across the world with their hit single “She Looks So Perfect,” followed by “Don’t Stop,” “Amnesia,” and “Good Girls.” Just a year later, their second record, Sounds Good Feels Good, was released along with the lead single “She’s Kinda Hot.” Before fans head out to see the band on tour again, 5SOS will release their well-anticipated third album, Youngblood, via Capitol Records. A music video just dropped for the latest single, “Want You Back.”
“Growing up is what we had to do on Youngblood,” said 5SOS guitarist/vocalist Luke Hemming said in a statement. “Seven years as a band may seem like a long time, but we were teenagers when we started. We had to look at each other and say, ‘Are we going to stop now, or do this forever? Because if we continue, then we have to go farther than we ever have before.’”
During the last 5SOS tour throughout North America, the band sold out completely at Mohegan Sun Arena – racking up a gross of $791,830 in sales from all 11,195 tickets available. Mohegan Sun is the second date on the Meet You There tour, and first date in the U.S.
Tickets for the tour went on sale this morning. Check out the full list of tour dates below.
