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.

“Forget about being a self-proclaimed ‘man of the woods.’ Justin Timberlake emerged as a man for all seasons…” – Chicago Tribune

…Timberlake made it as intimate as he could. He took advantage of a massive stage that included a catwalk that stretched the length of the floor and had a performance area surrounded by a bar for the select fans fortunate to buy a floor ticket.  The catwalk, which was decorated with trees and holographic grass in reference to the tour’s namesake, provided Timberlake with an avenue to tour the arena while he belted out every song. At some point, nearly everyone in the arena felt like they were sitting just a few rows away from the stage, even if it was just for a few seconds at a time.” Baltimore Post-Examiner

The Man Of The Woods Tour is produced by Live Nation Global Touring, Wright Entertainment Group, LBI Entertainment & Tennman Touring.

As PEOPLE recently noted, WAITING FOR MY ROCKET TO COME launched Mraz “from the Southern California coffee house scene into global stardom and the forefront of contemporary American singer-songwriters.” Released October 15, 2002, “the album indeed propelled Mraz to the forefront of contemporary American Pop, fueled by a trio of indelible hit singles in “You And I Both,” “Curbside Prophet” and the #1 favorite, “The Remedy (I Won’t Worry).” The latter single proved Mraz’s breakthrough, ascending to the Top 15 on Billboard’s Hot 100 while also reaching the top of the Top 40 Adult Recurrents chart.
