5 Seconds Of Summer’s U.S. Tour Takeover To Meet Up With One Direction Again

Australian boy band are headlining their first tour before returning with 1D.

Thought One Direction’supcoming Where We Are Tour couldn’t get any hotter? Well, think again because the boys of 5 Seconds Of Summer will be joining them on the road.

The pop-rock Australian boy band, consisting of Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford, Calum Hood and Ashton Irwin, are no stranger to the 1D scene, since they opened for the group on their worldwide Take Me Home Tour in 2013.

However, all you 5SOS fans won’t have to wait until August to see them take the stage in the states, because the group announced their first ever North American tour. The tour, which sold out in minutes, kicks off on April 11 in San Francisco and stops in 10 cities across the U.S. and Canada.

“We are so excited about playing our first ever North American headline tour,” said the band in a statement. “Our U.S. fans are absolutely crazy! We love it! Can’t wait to see everyone in April.”

Just last month, the group, who recently signed with Capitol Records, released their worldwide debut single, “She Looks So Perfect,” which also serves as the title track to their upcoming four-song EP, due out April 1. The upbeat pop-punk song showcases the band’s fun and flirty vibe, as they sing about young love. And if you haven’t heard it yet, take Niall Horan’s advice because “you need this tune in your life.”

The group, who play all their own instruments, also released the video for the single, which has people escaping the Australian heat by stripping down to their underwear. Unfortunately, the boys don’t get in on the action, but fans don’t seem to mind since the video topped 1 million views in its first 24 hours of release.
