Why Don’t We Summer Tour Coming to the Walmart AMP

NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, February 21, 2019 – Why Don’t We have unveiled details for the summer leg of their wildly popular 8 Letters Tour with a newly announced show at the Walmart AMP on Friday, July 26 as part of the Cox Concert Series. Gates open at 5:30 pm, and music starts at 7 pm. Tickets go on sale to the public Saturday, Feb. 23 at 10 am.

Ticket prices range from $30 to $79.50 plus applicable fees. Tickets can be purchased by calling 479.443.5600 or by visiting www.amptickets.com. In-person purchases can be made at the Walmart AMP Box Office in Rogers from 10 am until 6 pm on Feb. 23 or at the Walton Arts Center Box Office in Fayetteville Monday through Friday, 10 am until 2 pm and Saturday, noon until 4 pm.

The band’s current single “8 Letters” continues to climb on the Top 40 radio charts, 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 audience 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 new song and companion music video of 2019. The track follows last month’s arrival of “Big Plans,” which instantly shot to No.1 on the iTunes all genres chart, with the accompanying music video seeing nearly 5 million views on YouTube.

Amassing more than 750 million global audio streams, 3.7 million Instagram followers and total YouTube views exceeding 378 million with over 2.5 million subscribers in under two years, Why Don’t We has become one of pop music’s biggest breakout stories.

Taking an innovative and unconventional approach towards releasing new music and actively engaging their rapidly growing fan base, the prolific young group – the quintet ranges in age from 17-20 years old – put out four EPs in less than 12 months. The group closed 2017 on a high note, performing on the entire iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Tour, including the NYC stop at Madison Square Garden where they shared the stage with Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Camilla Cabello and more.

Their debut full length album, 8 Letters, debuted in the top 10 on the Billboard 200 at No.9 and immediately shot to No.1 on U.S. iTunes’ Overall Albums chart (along with topping charts in over 20 more territories around the globe). The band has sold out back-to-back North American headlining tours, including their biggest trek to date earlier this year that was highlighted by multiple nights in New York City, Las Angeles, Chicago and Toronto. High profile national television appearances include performances on NBC, ABC’s “Good Morning America,” nationally syndicated “Live with Kelly and Ryan,” CBS’s “The Late Show with James Corden” and more. Press highlights include features in Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Billboard and TIME, among others.
