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 21 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 (WATCH HERE) 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 songwriting chops have garnished hits for an extensive list of her peers, including the double platinum ‘I Love It’ with Swedish duo Icona Pop and most notably the 4M-selling hit collaboration ‘Fancy’ with Iggy Azalea that earned the pair two Grammy nominations for ‘Record of the Year’ and ‘Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.’
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. Rolling Stone declared “SUCKER” to be their ‘#6 Best Album of 2014,’ while Billboard called her “one of pop’s biggest new stars” and awarded Charlotte Aitchison with the first ever Women in Music ‘Hitmaker Award.’
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.” Bleachers made their network television debut on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers and followed with performances on Late Night Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live, a follow up performance and chat segment on Seth Meyers as well as special performance on Conan and appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Bleachers’ eccentric rollout campaign has featured announcements via Craigslist, a Bleachers Hotline, artwork revealed by anonymous countrywide cake deliveries, a surprise public access television telethon called “Thank You Very Much” and even a series with Bill Nye The Science Guy. Jack recently hosted the MTVu Woodie Awards at SXSW and Bleachers is currently on the road for the “Bleachers Come Alive!” tour.
