We can officially say “5SOS sold out MSG!!!” That’s a feat of epic proportions, especially for a band that hasn’t been around that long. It’s hard to believe that just two short years ago the guys were headlining the nearby Best Buy Theater, which holds about 2,000 people. Luke, Ashton, Calum, and Michael played every song we could have asked for on this tour and you could hear the entire arena singing every word!
The band played their new single, “Girls Talk Boys,” for the first time live at MSG. The track had just dropped the day of the show, but fans already knew all of the words and kept singing like they had been all night. The performance of the funky song saw lead singer Luke Hemmings jump on the piano for a bit – cue the swoons.
Drummer Ashton took the time to remind the crowd to always follow their dreams, saying he went from playing in his garage to playing in the legendary Madison Square Garden. He also said the crowd was the loudest he’d ever heard, despite having played many other shows.
Before going into the first verse of “Jet Black Heart” solo, Michael soaked up the applause from the crowd. Just when you thought he was going to keep going, the crowd just got louder and louder. It was one of the most energetic crowds we’ve ever seen at MSG (or anywhere for that matter!) We’re so proud of how far 5SOS have come so far and can’t wait for what’s next!
