The reason why 5sos are opening for TCS is because this could help 5sos gain more audience = more streaming= successful singles before 5sos4 drops.

Although some 5SOS fans seem to be unhappy that their boys will be sharing the stage with Alex Pall and Drew Taggert from the Chainsmokers, this tour will without-a-doubt bring in some new fans on both sides.
Both 5SOS and The Chainsmokers put on amazing shows, so this tour will definitely not be one that you want to miss!
In addition to the two groups, rising singer-songwriter, Lennon Stella will be opening every show on the tour.
The Atlanta stop of the World War Joy tour will be held at the State Farm Arena on October 22, 2019.
