Grammy Award-winning artist/producer duo The Chainsmokers have announced their massive "WORLD WAR JOY" North American headline arena tour for fall. Multi-platinum band 5 Seconds of Summer, who is featured on The Chainsmokers' latest single "Who Do You Love," will be joining all dates along with rising pop star Lennon Stella, who is opening the show.
GRAMMY winning duo The Chainsmokers have developed some of the biggest breakthrough songs over the last two years including Multi-Platinum certified hits "Roses," featuring Rozes, "Don't Let Me Down" featuring Daya and "Closer," featuring Halsey, which went on to become the longest running No. 1 single of 2016 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The group's debut album, Memories...Do Not Open, has been certified Platinum. The album debuted at No. 1 in the U.S. on the Billboard 200 chart and produced Multi-Platinum certified smash hits "Paris" and "Something Just Like This" featuring Coldplay. Released late last year, the duo's building album Sick Boy has generated over 1 Billion worldwide streams to date and features hit single "This Feeling" featuring Kelsea Ballerini. Alex and Drew will continue releasing music and touring across the globe throughout 2019 and beyond.

Mobile tickets are like an airline boarding pass which can be accessed with a smartphone via the Ticketmaster app or mobile site in a QR code format and scanned at the gate for entry.
Once you are within 48 hours of your event, log on to your Ticketmaster account and add the mobile tickets to your Apple Wallet/Google Wallet app. Once you have added to the app, your QR code will be accessible for entry. This bypasses the need for Wi-Fi or cellular data at the gates.
