The Chainsmokers announce arena tour and confirm debut album release

The Chainsmokers have announced a huge arena tour for 2017 and have finally confirmed that they will be releasing their debut album this year.

The Memories: Do Not Open Tour will begin in April in Miami, and will continue until June, taking in numerous North American cities on the way. Kiiara and Emily Warren will support the duo for the duration of the tour.

Presale tickets will be available at 3 pm ET via Citi’s Private Pass website. The general sale will begin on Friday, February 3 via Ticketmaster.

What’s even more exciting to note is that every ticket purchased will include a copy of The Chainsmokers’ forthcoming debut album. Yes, that’s right! Alex Pall and Drew Taggart are finally giving the fans what they want by releasing an entire album of music.

The news was actually first announced by Coldplay’s Chris Martin, before being confirmed by Alex and Drew themselves.

As of yet, there are no further details with regards to the album release date, name or tracklisting, however, we’re just pretty excited to know that it’s finally happening.

The Chainsmokers have always said that the release of an album would be dependant on whether their fans actually wanted one. With huge hits such as ‘Closer’, ‘Don’t Let Me Down’ and ‘Paris’ under their belts, why wouldn’t fans want an album? Whilst we’ve already waited a long time, we’re happy to wait that little bit longer now that we know there’s definitely an album on the way.
