5 Seconds of Summer Tickets

5 Seconds of Summer is the hot Aussie boy band sensation led by quartet Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford, Calum Hood and Ashton Irwin. Hit tunes “Out of My Limit,” “She Looks So Perfect” and “Heartbreak Girl” have sent the band around the globe on one tour after another, delivering them to audiences that dig seeing 5SOS LIVE in concert.

The power of boy bands
5 Seconds of Summer first gained exposure through posting YouTube videos of song covers in 2011 and 2012. The group started its professional career with a hit cover of Chris Brown and Justin Bieber’s “Next to You.” The song was an instant Internet sensation, amassing more than 600,000 views overnight. The EP, Unplugged, caught the attention of One Direction member Louis Tomlinson. He posted the group’s song, “Gotta Get Out,” to Twitter and soon after Niall Horan did the same with 5SOS’s first single, “Out of My Limit.” In 2013, the boys of 5SOS joined the One Direction boys on their “Take Me Home” tour, blending the two fan bases.

Gaining momentum
The band gained mainstream success with its song “She Looks So Perfect,&rdquo which debuted No. 2 on the Billboard 200. It released several EPs until its first self-titled album arrived in 2014. Then, the band followed up with a second album, Sounds Good Feels Good, in December of 2015.

Though the group has been called a “boy band,” the members don’t identify as one. The boys write their own songs, play instruments and don’t perform with choreographed dances. Over time 5SOS has proved itself as a twist on boy bands - it’s simply a band composed of raw-talented boys.
