The Chainsmokers, New York’s sensational pop electronic dance music artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Joe Louis Arena!

The Chainsmokers was formed in New York City in 2012 and is a duo consisting of electronic dance music (EDM) DJs Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall. While their musical style can be broadly classified as EDM, it’s best described as a blend of electro house (a form of house music characterized by a prominent bassline and/or kick drum and a tempo between 125 and 135 beats per minute), progressive house (a subgenre of house music developed in the United Kingdom as a natural progression of American and European house music of the late 1980s), trap, and future bass. They had a breakthrough with their 2014 single (Selfie) hitting #16 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and #1 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Songs chart. It also peaked at #16, #13, #12, #11, #9, #3, #3, and #2 in Austria, Canada, the Netherlands, the UK, Denmark, Norway, Australia, and Sweden respectively. The single has now been certified Silver in the UK, Platinum in the US, Canada, and Australia, and triple Platinum in Sweden. The duo has released 14 more singles, an extended play, and has collaborated with artists such as Halsey, Daya, Priyanka Chopra, Rozes, BullySongs, Great Good Fine Ok, Tiësto, Tritonal Charlee, Phoebe Ryan, and sirenXX.
