5SOS Announces Summer North American Meet You There Tour

Monday, April 9th, 2018

The band will be live in Mohegan Sun Arena on August 29th

UNCASVILLE, CT (April 9, 2018) – With the spring 5 Seconds Of Summer (5SOS) tour completely sold out, the band is making good on its promise to fans for a more extensive outing, including larger venues and amphitheaters across the run. The Meet You There Tour, produced by Live Nation, will launch on August 27th in Toronto, ON and include a show at Mohegan Sun Arena on Wednesday, August 29th starting at 7:30pm. The 25-city North American headline trek will conclude on October 12th with a concert at Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre. Each ticket purchased for the Meet You There Tour also includes a copy of the forthcoming album.

Tickets are $59.50, $49.50 and $39.50 and go on sale Friday, April 13th at 10:00am through Ticketmaster. Ticketmaster customers may log on to Ticketmaster.com or call Ticketmaster’s national toll free Charge By Phone number 1.800.745.3000.  Tickets will also be available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office beginning on Saturday, April 14th, subject to availability.

Additionally, Capitol Records will release Youngblood, the third studio album from 5SOS, on June 22nd. Today, the band shared the album’s cover and let fans know the title track will be released this Thursday, April 12th, at 7:00AM PT/10AM ET.

On Youngblood, 5SOS expands its musical parameters while retaining the hooks and trademark DNA that’s always been a massive part of the band’s appeal. Vocalist/guitarist Luke Hemmings explains, “Growing up is what we had to do on Youngblood. 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.’”

5SOS will performWant You Back,” the first single from Youngblood, on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this Wednesday, April 11th – the eve of the band’s sold-out show at New York City’s Irving Plaza. The track debuted at #1 on iTunes in over 18 countries and has already amassed more than 60 million streams worldwide. Want You Back” showcases the bold new approach 5SOS takes on Youngblood. Luke Hemmings’ passionate yearning for lost love finds him breaking into a searing falsetto on the infectious chorus. The soaring production and upfront bass line, meanwhile, finds the band exploring grooves and emotions like never before.

An acoustic version of Want You Back is out now along with Want You Back(Tritonal Remix). The official video, which was directed by James Larese (Eminem, Fall Out Boy, Imagine Dragons), can be seen HERE.

Hailed as the “biggest new Rock act in the world” by Rolling Stone, 5SOS is the only band (not vocal group) in history to see its first two full-length studio albums enter the Billboard 200 at #1. 5SOS’s self-titled debut album has sold more than three million units worldwide, with 1.5 million albums and more than 4.5 million single tracks sold in the U.S. alone.  2015’s Sounds Good Feels Good charted at #1 in 12 countries, including the U.S., the U.K. and Australia. “She’s Kinda Hot,” the album’s first single, topped the iTunes charts in 44 countries. 5SOS – comprising Luke Hemmings (vocals/guitar), Michael Clifford (vocals/guitar), Calum Hood (vocals/bass) and Ashton Irwin (vocals/drums) – has won an American Music Award, a People’s Choice Award, an iHeartRadio Music Award, five MTV European Music Awards, two ARIA Awards and an MTV Video Music Award.

Mohegan Sun Arena is now ranked consistently among the top venues in the world according to Billboard Magazine, Pollstar and Venues Today.
