If The Chainsmokers' collaboration with 5 Seconds of Summer (5SOS) was up your alley, you may have a chance to see them perform it together live. The two acts have announced a fall tour called WORLD WAR JOY that will see them visit 42 cities across North America.
The WORLD WAR JOY tour will commence with a show at U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio on September 25th, 2019. Following an extensive run that includes arenas in U.S. cities like Detroit, Miami, Denver, Austin and St. Louis as well as Canadian locations like Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver, it will conclude with a date in the latter city's Pepsi Live at Rogers Arena. The two groups will also be joined by Lennon Stella for support.
In an era during which EDM/pop punk crossovers appear to be growing in popularity, The Chainsmokers' 5SOS collaboration will not be their only endeavor of the sort. Last month, the duo comprised of Alex Pall and Drew Taggart also revealed that a song with Blink 182 lies out on the horizon.
Pre-sale tickets for The Chainsmokers and 5 Seconds of Summer's WORLD WAR JOY North American fall tour will be available on February 14th. Sign up for them here.
