L-R: Michael, Luke, Ashton, and Calum
5 Seconds of Summer (or 5sos) is an Australian band that is now the opening act for One Direction's Take Me Home world tour. A tour I wasn't even planning on going to until I came across these guys! (I mean, I love 1D, but I went to their last tour and tickets for this tour are ridiculously expensive!)
The band consists of Luke (vocals/guitar - 16), Calum (vocals/bass - 17), Michael (guitar/vocals - 17), and Ashton (drums/vocals - 18). 5sos got their start by posting covers on Youtube in 2011, and have already gotten the chance to write with McFly, and as I said earlier, open for One Direction for the entire world tour! I'm not sure about what kind of following they have, because The Vamps have just as many on views their videos, but haven't accomplished nearly as much as 5sos has, so I have no idea where they stand with fans.
I would love to go see them in Atlanta, but as I mentioned earlier, ticket prices are too expensive. When I saw One Direction in Orlando last year, I was sat 7th row for 300-something dollars. Now nosebleeds are going for the same price!
I'd love to see them live, but the more I look at tickets, the more I realize that it's just not going to happen.
