Navigating their setlist, which included crowd-pleasers such as “She’s Kinda Hot” and “If Walls Could Talk,” the four-piece band welcomed a special guest, Joel Madden, to the stage to perform “Amnesia,” setting the scene for a colossal, unforgettable moment.

In an exclusive interview conducted yesterday by idobi Radio within the out-of-this-world setting of the idobi Artist Lounge at When We Were Young, Ashton Irwin, the drummer of 5SOS, chatted with Fish. Ashton delved into the band’s collaboration with Benji and Joel Madden on the chart-topping track “Amnesia.” He revealed that the Madden brothers played a “massive part” in the song and that it was “one of their songs they had, and they go, ‘Well, you boys would be great for this song.’” The Good Charlotte leading men were certainly correct!

The last few years have been non-stop for 5 Seconds Of Summer. 2022 saw the release of their fifth full-length album, 5SOS5, a collection of beautiful and boundless pop songs that pushed the band into new and exciting territory. The 5 Seconds Of Summer show has also been making its way across the world, with the quartet delivering a setlist that celebrates their whole journey from the beginning to now. Kicking off in the U.S. before heading into Europe and the UK, they have brought joy to every spot where they step foot.

They have even captured the magic of their live shows in a special live album. The Feeling Of Falling Upwards was recorded at the iconic Royal Albert Hall in London and feels like a huge moment in the band’s story. From every song feeling like it belongs in such a vast room to the sheer excitement of the crowd watching them, it’s a truly special experience.
