Hot off the heels of the release of their third studio album, Youngblood, 5 Seconds of Summer will be returning to New Zealand to perform for kiwi fans for one night only in August as part of their Meet You There tour.
Having performed on the Today Show to the The Voice and The Ellen Show, these young Aussie lads have seen many stages, but haven’t forgotten their pavlova loving neighbours. Kiwi fans loving the bands new music with the latest hit single Youngblood rocking to No.1 on Shazam and No. 6 on Spotify, while also reaching the Global Top 30. With the new single Youngblood and Want You Back both ripping up the radio waves, the anticipation for this tour is high.
Their new album is a great evolution from their previous work. It sees the band has grown as musicians over the three years we spent waiting for new music. 5SOS were so young when they started out, and it’s amazing how far they have come since then. Rolling Stone seems to agree, hailing them the “biggest new rock act in the world”
The last time the 5SOS lads were performing for kiwi audiences was back in 2015 with smash hits She Looks So Perfect and Amnesia. So if you missed out back then, you won’t want to miss out again. Surely the lads will play both past and present bangers for fans to enjoy.
