JUST LIKE A “TEEN”! – 5S0S CRASHING TICKET SITES WITH THEIR MASS TICKET SALES
The teen band from Down Under, 5 Seconds of Summer, (5SOS), (“She Looks So Perfect”) have made an enormous splash across the world – selling out their 2015 “Rock Out With Your Socks Out” Tour in advance for Europe and Australia in a matter of minutes, crashing ticket sites in the process. The band got their start in 2011, becoming YouTube celebrities. It was when Louis Tomlinson from boy band, One Direction, posted a link to their video “Gotta Get Out”, that they really got attention. In 2013, One Direction added 5SOS to their “Take Me Home” Tour as opening act, skyrocketing the band’s popularity. Unlike their tour mates, 5SOS don’t just sing live, they are a rock band, performing all their own instrumentation live. They’ve begun to take over American radio with their pop/rock music – U.S. fans eagerly await their “Rock Out With Your Socks Out” North American tour which won’t begin until July 2015.
