You’re Cordially Invited! American rising dance-pop boy group, Why Don’t We, will be bringing their “The Invitation Tour” to Singapore for the first time ever!
“The Invitation Tour” celebrates Why Don’t We’s chart-topping EP, “Invitation”. Fresh from their sold-out shows across North America and Europe, they are finally coming to Southeast Asia for the first time! Fans in Singapore are definitely in for a treat as they will be watching the group performing live for the first time here.
The “Invitation” EP proved an immediate international sensation, topping the iTunes Store’s overall album chart. Once again taking an innovative and unconventional approach towards releasing new music and engaging a rapidly growing fan base, “Invitation” arrived on Why Don’t We’s official one-year anniversary as a group, a milestone celebrated at an exclusive party live-streamed on the group’s hugely popular YouTube channel.
This year, the group released a brand new single “Trust Fund Baby”. Written by multiple GRAMMY® Award-winning superstar Ed Sheeran and produced by British hitmaker Steve Mac (Ed Sheeran, Liam Payne, Clean Bandit), “Trust Fund Baby” immediately shot into the Top 3 on the iTunes Overall Songs Chart upon its release, ahead of superstar artists like Drake, Bruno Mars, and Camila Cabello, and has press raving with BuzzFeed calling it “a smash” and Rolling Stone gushing about “the song’s catchy, booming beat”.
In addition to national television appearances on NBC’s Today and the syndicated daytime show “Live with Kelly and Ryan”, and, most recently, ABC’s Good Morning America, the group also performed on the entire iHeartRadio Jingle Ball tour, sharing the stage with some of the biggest names in pop music, including Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, and Camila Cabello, at Madison Square Garden. Why Don’t We was also named “MTV PUSH: Artist To Watch” for the month of November and served as Radio Disney’s “NBT” (Next Big Thing) featured artist, joining an impressive roster of “NBT” alumni including Shawn Mendes, Alessia Cara, Fifth Harmony and more.
Amassing more than 212 million global audio streams, 2.7 million Instagram followers, and over 1.6 million subscribers on YouTube with views exceeding 170 million, Why Don’t We is one of pop music’s biggest breakout stories. Following their debut EP “Only The Beginning” and EP “Something Different”, it was last summer’s “Why Don’t We Just” EP that first exploded, hitting #1 on iTunes’ “Pop Albums” chart, overtaking artists like Bruno Mars, Harry Styles, and Ed Sheeran. After selling out their first-ever headlining summer tour, the band put out their “Invitation” EP which proved an even greater success, topping iTunes’ Overall Albums chart in six countries including the United States. The band’s single “These Girls” made a Top 10 debut on the iTunes Store’s “Top Pop Songs” chart late last summer, only to be surpassed by their latest single “Trust Fund Baby”. The band also garnered early press attention from Entertainment Weekly, Us Weekly, and Billboard who named the band in their annual “21 Under 21” ranking.
Singapore fans should not miss this rare chance to catch Why Don’t We for the first time live in Singapore! It will be a night to remember at “The Invitation Tour”!
