Tickets On Sale Now
Grammy Award winning artist/producer duo The Chainsmokers left it up to their fans to decide whether or not they’d release an album, and the clamor has been heard across the world. In response to popular demand, the duo has announced that they will release their debut album this year via Columbia / Disruptor Records.
The album news comes alongside the announcement of The Chainsmokers’ biggest ever tour to date. The 40 city “Memories: Do Not Open” North American arena tour will stop at Joe Louis Arena on Thursday, April 27 at 7 p.m.; part of the “Farewell Season at The Joe”. Multi-platinum artist Kiiara, Emily Warren and Shaun Frank will join The Chainsmokers as special guests.

The album and tour announcements come hot on the heels of the release of The Chainsmokers’ brand new single “Paris.” The song, which USA TODAY notes “has all the makings of their next huge hit,” immediately shot to the #1 spot on iTunes’ Top Songs chart upon release and debuted at #7 on Billboard’s Hot 100, marking the duo’s fourth track to reach the Top 10 and their highest first week entrance on the chart to date. The song features vocals from Drew himself and serves as the follow up to their previous smash hit “Closer,” the biggest #1 song in 2016. The beachy lyric video for “Paris,” directed by Rory Kramer and shot on location at Casa Malca in Tulum, Mexico, features Instagram model Alexis Ren and is already approaching 60 Million views.
