Troye Sivan announced today that he will be heading out on a U.S./Candian tour this fall and we are totally stoked.
“alsooooo a portion of ticket sales for the #SuburbiaTour will go to @allycoalition which supports a bunch of really amazing LGBTQ causes,” Troye tweeted.
He’ll kick off the tour on the West Coast in San Francisco, Calif. on Oct. 16 and the tour will wrap up in Atlanta, Ga., on Nov. 18. He’ll be stopping in plenty of major cities on the way…we’re talking Dallas, Chicago, Detroit, Boston and New York, just to name a few.
Pre-sale tickets will be available on Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
This week, “Youth” sits at number 83 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. Although it may have slipped from last week’s position (58) the track has remained on the chart for a solid 14 weeks.
For many of us, we’ve basically grown up with R5. Ross, Riker, Rydel, Rocky and Ratliff (Ellington). It just comes natural to us.
The band recently chatted with Live Nation about what it’s like to be in the band, their sound and how they got their start.
The video below kicks off Riker explaining that although the group is made up (primarily) of siblings, that they don’t look at it like that. They have a great time and he feels that if they weren’t siblings, they would have found each other anyway to create music.
Anyone who has ever seen R5 perform live knows that they wow crowds everytime, they bring light, they bring the fire, they bring passion.
“What we like to say is that our live show kinda explains who we really are,” shared Ellington.
Also in the interview, the band chats about their sound. They chat about how they aim to create that rock element, classic rock, old school, that’s the goal and that they idolize artists from all decades.
We won’t spoil everything, just watch the video! R5 fans won’t be sorry.
The band does not have any shows announced on their website at this time, but be sure to check back, we’ll let you know when they do.
