(US) Charli XCX and Bleachers announce today that they will embark on a co-headlining tour this summer called, “Charli and Jack Do America”. The first leg of the tour kicks off July 21st in San Diego and will be supported by BØRNS.
Having starred together previously on Complex’s In-Ride Sessions: Charli XCX and Jack Antonoff Trade Remixes the two have been eager to pair up again and are excited to take their shows on the road together.
“I love Charli. I love what she does with pop music, how she makes it bizarre. The two of us do totally different things but occupy a similar space — that’s what I loved about the idea to tour together. It makes sense in the fact that it doesn’t make sense,” explained Jack about working with Charli.
“I love Jack. I love what he does with pop music, how he makes every song feel like a movie. This tour is gonna be cool and weird and fabulous and I really can’t wait,” said Charli about working with Jack.
22 year-old singer/songwriter/performer Charli XCX’s rise to international pop stardom has been nothing short of meteoric. Following the release of her dark-pop debut record “True Romance” in 2013 to a wealth of critical acclaim, Charli has toured the globe with the likes of Katy Perry and Coldplay while writing and featuring on some of the biggest songs of recent years—selling over 17 million singles combined worldwide. Her newly released sophomore album via Neon Gold/Atlantic Records, “SUCKER,” features solo smashes such as the Top 10 hit ‘Boom Clap,’ ‘Break The Rules,’ ‘Doing It’ (bringing the girl-power with a newly remixed version featuring Rita Ora) and new single ‘Famous’ which saw its video premiere via the 2015 YouTube Music Awards.
Jack Antonoff’s latest musical endeavor, Bleachers, released the debut album “Strange Desire” on RCA Records this past July. The first single “I Wanna Get Better” quickly rose to No. 1 on the alt radio chart while the second single “Rollercoaster” recently hit #4 on the chart. USA Today called the album, “full of hooks and full of heart” and Stereogum declared it “triumphant.”
Tickets for the first leg of “Charli and Jack Do America” go on sale Friday April 24th at 10:00 AM local time with the second leg announcement coming soon.
