Charli XCX + Bleachers Team Up For ‘MTV & VH1 Present: Charli and Jack Do America’ Tour

It all begins Tuesday, July 21st!

Get ready music lovers! Charli XCX and Jack Antonoff are all set to co-headline the “MTV & VH1 Presents: Charli and Jack Do America” tour. The first leg of the exciting series will kick off Tuesday (July 21) in San Diego, California and the second will begin Monday (Sept. 14) in Boston.

The two artists previously starred together on Complex’s In-Ride Sessions: Charli XCX and Jack Antonoff Trade Remixes and were eager to join forces again. Last month Jack joined Charli on stage during her Today Show Toyota Summer Concert Series performance of “Doing It.”

Jack states, “I’ve done a lot with MTV and VH1 over the past few years and they’ve been such amazing supporters of my work. Everyone over there is super interested in finding bizarre and creative ideas around anything we’ve ever done. I just love that. I couldn’t be more thrilled to have them be a part of this tour.”

Charli XCX is equally enthusiastic. “Cannot wait to go on the ’Charli and Jack Do America Tour’ and do loads of embarrassing stuff in front of MTV yaaaay. See you on the road angels!!”

22 year-old Charli XCX’s rise to international pop stardom has been nothing short of meteoric. The songwriter and performer has penned and featured on some of the biggest songs of recent years—selling over 25 million singles combined worldwide. Following the 2013 release of her dark-pop debut record “True Romance” 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. Her songwriting chops have garnished hits for an extensive list of her peers, including the 3x platinum ’I Love It’ with Swedish duo Icona Pop and the 4 million copy-selling hit collaboration ’Fancy’ with Iggy Azalea that earned the pair two Grammy nominations and a 2015 Billboard Music Award. Her sophomore album “SUCKER” (Neon Gold/Atlantic Records) features solo smashes including the Top 10 hit ’Boom Clap,’ ’Break The Rules,’ ’Doing It’ ft. Rita Ora, and ‘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.’ Charli has graced magazine covers nationwide, including the current June/July issue of Teen Vogue (alongside Nat Wolff) in addition to Maxim, Nylon, Seventeen, Complex, and Billboard; and has performed live on Saturday Night Live, The Late Show with David Letterman, Billboard Music Awards, American Music Awards, Late Night w/ Seth Meyers, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Good Morning America, The TODAY Show, and Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Years Eve. Arriving Monday June 8th, Charli XCX will release a special five-track “Spotify Sessions” EP recorded live from Australia.

Grammy award winner Jack Antonoff released original docu-series “Thank You and Sorry” which features Jack as he navigates the bizarre world of touring and life on the road with his latest musical endeavor Bleachers. The series debuted exclusively on Google Play on June 16th. Just last month Bleachers also released the “Like A River Runs” EP which is available now at all digital providers. “Like A River Runs” marks the launch of the 3rd single off Bleachers’ debut album “Strange Desire”. The first single off the album “I Wanna Get Better” quickly rose to No. 1 on the alt radio chart while the second single “Rollercoaster” hit #3 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 played a variety of shows in addition to hosting this year’s MTVu Woodie Awards at SXSW. Most recently, Bleachers concluded the Bleachers Come Alive! Tour and Jack joined Fred Armisen and the 8G band on Late Night With Seth Meyers for a two night residency on the show.
