Who Do You Love? If the answer includes The Chainsmokers, you’re in luck because the EDM-pop act just unveiled the routing for a North American headline arena tour. 

The Grammy-award winning artist/producer duo, made up of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart, will be joined on the road by 5 Seconds of Summer, who is featured on the new single “Who Do You Love.”  The track hit No. 1 on iTunes and was added to Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist in 37 countries, racking up nearly 14 million streams globally since being released last week  via Disruptor Records / Columbia Records.

Produced by Live Nation, the 41-city “World War Joy” tour will also feature rising pop star Lennon Stella as the opener on all dates. The fun begins Sept. 25 in Cincinnati. Here’s the plan:
