5 Seconds of Summer to Head Out on Headlining Tour in 2015

image

Love them or hate them, 5 Seconds of Summer are one of the breakout acts of this Summer.

Sorry people who dislike them, a lot.

In support of their debut record, the Australian boy band have announced that they will be hitting the North American amphitheater touring circuit.

Insert tween girl screams here.

Though the tour isn’t scheduled to happen until Summer 2015, we’ve seen how fangirls (and boys) start planning a year in advance, so this is good news for them. Touring with One Direction probably helped them learn how to maneuver around all the crazy.

The tour which will feature 28 stops in both the United States and Canada, will begin on Friday, July 17, 2015 at the Mandalay Bay Event Center in Las Vegas and wrap up on Sunday, September 13, 2015 at the Cruzan Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, FL.

They also announced three headlining shows for this November; one in Phoenix and two at The Forum in Los Angeles.
