Atlantic recording artists Why Don't We have unveiled details for the summer leg of their wildly popular 8 Letters Tour. The tour will make their last stop at The Great Allentown Fair on Saturday, August 31, 2019.
Why Don't We's current single "8 Letters" continues to climb at Top 40 radio, ascending into the Top 25 and boasting over 130 million global audio and video streams to date. The group recently performed "8 Letters" and other hits on the outdoor stage at Jimmy Kimmel Live! in front of one of the loudest audiences the show has seen. Marking the event, Rolling Stone noted "...the crowd's screams and shrieks of glee nearly overpowered the musicians' voices" while Billboard simply described the performance as "epic." The pandemonium mirrored the band's outdoor concert in Rockefeller Plaza as part of TODAY's Citi Concert Series, where they garnered one of the largest crowds of the summer.
Known for their prolific, creative output, Why Don't We unveiled "Cold in LA," their second brand new song and companion music video of 2019. The track follows last month's arrival of "Big Plans," which instantly shot to #1 on the iTunes all genres chart, with the accompanying music video seeing nearly 5 million views on YouTube.
Tickets are $39, $59 and $79.
