Chainsmokers bring Memories... Do Not Open to Auckland this October

Multi-platinum selling global sensation The Chainsmokers will be bringing their massive sound and spectacular performance to Auckland this October.

The Chainsmokers will be sharing the stage with Australian record artist LDRU who hasn't stopped since the release of his first single 'The Tropics' in 2013 which caught the attention of Skrillex, A-Track, Diplo and What So Not. His double platinum single 'Keeping Score' reached 12 million Spotify streams, received 3 ARIA nominations and was the highest selling Australian single in 2016!

Joining the group is 'Best Breakthrough Act' winner Chores, the homegrown electronic duo who's been wowing crowds at some of NZ's biggest festivals including Rhythm & Vines, Northern Bass, Bay Dreams, Deep, Hard N Funky and with key supports for artists like A-Trak, Dusky, Peking Duk, Cut Snake & Touch Sensitive.

After a massive US tour and sell-out shows, the Chainsmokers finally reach New Zealand to celebrate their recently released album 'Memories... Do Not Open' following a series of chart-topping singles. Starting with their seminal single 'Roses' (2015), the duo backed it up with the phenomenal, multi-platinum tune 'Don't Let Me Down' featuring Daya and the smash hit 'Closer' featuring Halsey. Closer reached three-time platinum in NZ and has more than one billion views on YouTube worldwide.

Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall AKA The Chainsmokers took the world by storm becoming the third group in history to have three singles in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 simultaneously ('Something Just Like This' with Coldplay collaboration, 'Paris' and Closer), an incredibly rare feat only previously accomplished by The Beatles and the Bee Gees.

The duo won five awards at the 2017 iHeart Radio Music Awards, including Best New Artist, Best New Pop Artist, Dance Album of the Year (Collage), Dance Artist of the Year and Dance Song of the Year (Closer). These wins follow their Grammy Award win for Best Dance Recording (Don’t Let Me Down) and MTV's Woodie of the Year at last year's SXSW. All these breakthroughs cemented The Chainsmokers' place at the top of the global pop charts.

Don't miss the opportunity to witness how The Chainsmokers bring the house down this spring.
