5 Seconds of Summer, the Chainsmokers announce ‘World War Joy’ fall tour dates

Fresh off releasing their collaboration, it looks like 5 Seconds of Summer and the Chainsmokers are ready to take the track on the road. On Tuesday (Feb. 12), the Australian band and the New York-founded act announced plan to embark on a massive North American tour during the final months of 2019.

Dubbed the World War Joy tour, the trek will find the band and the DJs performing across the continent throughout the months of September, October, November, and December. The 41-stop jaunt will include shows in major cities such as Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Toronto, Montreal, Pittsburgh, Miami, Brooklyn, Houston, Los Angeles, and more.

The forthcoming outing begins on Sept. 25 at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati and concludes two and a half months later on Dec. 6 at Pepsi Live at Rogers Arena in Vancouver. Joining 5 Seconds of Summer and the Chainsmokers on the upcoming tour is country act Lennon Stella.

Pre-sales begin this Wednesday, Feb. 13, at 10 a.m. local time. General ticket sales begin this Friday, Feb. 15, at 10 a.m. local time.

Last week, 5 Seconds of Summer and the Chainsmokers unveiled their surprise collaboration, “Who Do You Love.

“Who Do You Love” appears to be a one-off single for the Chainsmokers as the track is not featured on their recently released sophomore effort, Sick Boy. The album consists of ten tracks that were released throughout 2018 prior to the record’s release date.

As for 5 Seconds of Summer, the band recently unveiled the acoustic version of their latest single, “Lie to Me.” The acoustic version of the song came a few weeks after the group unleashed the official music video for the original version of the song. “Lie to Me” is featured on the foursome’s recently released record, Youngblood.

As evident by all the changes the band members have made to their social media pages, it appears that the Youngblood era has officially come to an end, not even a year after the album was released.
