R5 recently announced the European leg of the Louder World Tour. That run consists of 21 dates, spanning 13 countries and kicks off February 5 in Warsaw, Poland, ending March 8 in Dublin, Ireland. The band will make stops in Stockholm, Berlin, Barcelona, Paris, London and Dublin among other cities.
R5 will announce additional tour legs in early 2014.
Earlier this year R5 rocketed onto the Billboard Top 200 debuting at No. 24 and hit No. 2 on the iTunes Pop chart with debut album Louder, produced by Emanuel “Eman” Kiriakou and Andrew Goldstein for Mod Squad Music Inc., and co-written by the band.
R5 has rapidly emerged as an exciting new voice in the world of pop rock. Originally from Littleton, Colo., the L.A.-based band was formed in 2008 and is comprised of siblings Riker (bass/vocals), Ross (guitar/vocals), Rocky (guitar/vocals) and Rydel Lynch (keyboard/vocals); along with friend Ellington “Ratliff” (drums/vocals).
The band self-released their first EP, Ready Set Rock in 2010. They signed with Hollywood Records in April of 2012 and released their second EP, Loud, on February 19, 2013. R5’s major label debut, Louder, was released on September 24, 2013. The quintet starred in a 5-part VEVO series titled “R5 on R5,” which saw cameras follow them on a 2013 sold-out tour that included shows in the U.S., Canadian, Australia, England and France.
Along with duties in R5, Ross Lynch also starred in the hit 2013 Disney Channel Original Movie Teen Beach Movie, and was featured on the soundtrack album which hit the #2 spot on the iTunes overall album chart and #3 on the Billboard 200 chart. The soundtrack spent five consecutive weeks in the top 10 on the Billboard 200 chart and has sold over 340,000 albums to date. Between R5’s Loud EP and debut album Louder, Teen Beach Movie Soundtrack and the Austin & Ally soundtrack, Ross has sold over 500,000 albums to date.
