It’s already been a great 2017 for The Chainsmokers, and it’s fixing to get a lot better real soon. The popular DJ duo is releasing their first ever full-length studio album in April, and an accompanying tour will beginning in the following days.
Here are some major dates from the last week or so and some big ones in the near future in the world of The Chainsmokers.
Coldplay Spills the Beans – Jan 22
Coldplay has a total number of Twitter followers quickly approaching 20 million. On January 22, the band tweeted about their excitement for the upcoming studio release by The Chainsmokers. The duo actually had no intention of revealing the news that soon, but who could possibly be anything but appreciative when a band with a following five times the population of Los Angeles mentions you in a public social media post? It no doubt garnered The Chainsmokers some new followers, and they were at just under 1 million as of press time.
The Chainsmokers Make It Official – Jan 30
They went ahead and confirmed it via their own Twitter account on June 30, openly remarking how they are doing this tour specifically for and because of the fans. The group has a huge legion of fans anxious about every tidbit of news that is announced. As is the case in the modern digital era, they also have a large helping of haters who try to bring them down whenever possible.
Album Drops – April 5
“Closer” stayed at overall #1 on the Billboard charts for a total of 12 weeks straight in 20016. The popularity and exposure gained the group millions of looks, clicks and followers over the last calendar year. A wildly-popular single being released before the first studio album can be a blessing and a curse. The duo has quickly risen to the top of the club music scene, but the bar is now set very high. Whether they intended to or not, The Chainsmokers have ante’d all of their chips to the center of the table with the upcoming release. Everyone expects them do come up aces.
Tour Kicks Off – April 13
The Chainsmokers’ Memories: Do Not Open Tour will begin just a few days after the premiere album hits the shelves, but probably with enough of a time span in between for the album to be at or near the top of the Billboard charts by the time the group takes the stage at the American Airlines Arena in Miami on the evening of April 13.
After breaking the seal on this huge run of live performances, shows will unfold in Tampa, Florida, South Carolina, Virginia and Connecticut before a show at the Times Union Center in Albany, New York on Friday, April 21.
The Tour Wraps – June 10
After visiting over 30 cities in between the aforementioned dates and the conclusion of the tour, the large schedule of shows is currently set to conclude with two consecutive performances at the Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, New York on the evenings of Friday, June 9 and Saturday, June 10. By mid-summer, The Chainsmokers will have made major strides in their youthful and blossoming careers.
