Michael started the band and asked his friends of they wanted to join. They started off by doing covers of songs on you tube and they started preforming in small venues around Australia.
They released Somewhere New in 2012 and they were only a little famous in Australia. They had a few fans here and there but it wasn't until 2013 that they were known international. 5SOS were asked to join One Direction to be their opening act during their Take Me Home Tour. They accepted and went on tour with them, They played in Europe, The U.S and back in Australia. They got a positive reaction from the crowd while preforming and gained more fan each day. After Finishing the Take Me Home Tour they announce that they were going to be touring in the UK and in Europe. All shows were sold out after they tickets went on sale.
Their tour started in January of this year and later on they announced that they were coming back to America. Their first stop in the U.S is going to be in San Francisco ( it makes me sad because I am not going) then they will tour all around the U.S. After their American tour is over they will take a break and this summer they will return to be One Directions opening act in their Where We Are Stadium tour (I am going to that one!!!).
