Grammy-nominated artist/producer duo The Chainsmokers will perform May 9 at Gila River Arena in Glendale.
The duo’s North American tour coincides with the release of their debut album this year via Columbia/Disruptor Records.
The Chainsmokers left it up to their fans to decide whether or not they’d release an album, and the clamor has been heard across the world.
The 40-city ‘Memories: Do Not Open’ North American arena tour kicks off on April 13 in Miami.
Multi-platinum artist Kiiara will join The Chainsmokers as special guest on all dates.
Every ticket purchased online for the tour includes a copy of The Chainsmokers’ forthcoming debut album.
Tickets can be purchased online at gilariverarena.com, by phone at 800-745-3000, or at the Gila River Arena Box Office. For additional tour and ticket information visit http://www.thechainsmokers.com/shows.
The album and tour announcements come hot on the heels of the release of The Chainsmokers’ new single, “Paris.” The song, which USA Today notes “has all the makings of their next huge hit,” immediately shot to the No. 1 spot on iTunes’ Top Songs chart upon release and debuted at No. 7 on Billboard’s Hot 100, marking the duo’s fourth track to reach the Top 10 and their highest first week entrance on the chart to date.
The song features vocals from Drew himself and serves as the follow up to their previous smash hit “Closer,” the biggest No. 1 song in 2016. The beachy lyric video for “Paris,” directed by Rory Kramer and shot on location at Casa Malca in Tulum, Mexico, features Instagram model Alexis Ren and is already approaching 60 million views.
