World War Joy Tour

By: Krishan Narsinghani

The Chainsmokers returned to their home of Los Angeles to shake down Inglewood at the legendary Forum. With over 40 shows on their World War Joy Tour, the duo (Drew Taggart and Alex Pall) didn’t stop short to show LA why they’re one of the world’s leading EDM acts.

The evening began with acts Lennon Stella and 5 Seconds of Summer (5SOS) warming up the nearly sold-out 18,000 capacity arena. The Australian pop-rock band, whom hail from Sydney, during their riveting performance, reminded the crowd that they are not your conventional ‘opening act.’ After belting hit after hit, it was apparent that this group could pack a stadium on their own accord with ease.

Production for each Chainsmokers’ song kept the crowd enticed and on their toes –  i.e. tranced with lasers, motorcycles, pyro sticks and special guest appearances. Blink-182 made a surprise entrance to help preview a new single dropping on the anticipated Chainsmokers’ album, “World War Joy,” set to release on December 6th. 

The group continued with smash hits like the Grammy award winning, ‘Don’t Let Me Down,’ along with favorites ‘Closer,’ and ‘Takeaway.’ Bass heavy mixes paralleled with Drew’s angelic vocals was a sweet spot for dance music fanatics. The live performance truly made you a fan if you weren’t already.
