PALMDALE – The City of Palmdale has added the popular all girls group Fifth Harmony to the summer concert series on July 19, replacing Zendaya, who has cancelled her summer concert dates due to a scheduling conflict.
Tickets for Fifth Harmony are on sale at www.cityofpalmdale.org/TheAmp. In addition, previously purchased Zendaya tickets will be honored at the Fifth Harmony concert. Ticket holders who purchased Zendaya tickets online will be contacted by email.
Fifth Harmony formed during the second season of The X Factor. With their show-stopping vocals, undeniable charisma, and genuine sisterly bond, the “fearsome fivesome” (as they became known), endeared themselves to viewers across the country.
“I can feel a wave beginning behind this group, said The X Factor creator and judge Simon Cowell. “The chemistry between the Fifth Harmony girls both on and offstage is fantastic. They’re fun to be around and most importantly, they are all incredibly talented.”
In the short time since, they have won numerous awards including Radio Disney Music Award for 2014 Breakout Artist of the Year, Shorty Awards for Best Band in Social Media, and Billboard’s Girl Group Week Most Promising New Girl Group. They were handpicked to be part of Disney’s “Next Big Thing” campaign, MTV and Pop Tarts “Crazy Good VMA Concert,” and won the fan-voted Vevo’s Lift Artist Award.
Fifth Harmony’s debut EP Better Together, released October 22, 2013, skyrocketed to #2 on iTunes and now officially lands the group their first Top Ten Album, which debuted at #6 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart. Featuring five brand new songs and their smash hit “Miss Movin’ On,” it’s a diverse, dynamic, and delightful introduction to America’s only teen pop female vocal groups. The girls just announced that their first single off their EP is “Don’t Want to Dance Alone,” an upbeat party tune that will make everyone want to get onto the dance floor.
Fifth Harmony released four other EP editions in 2014: Their Spanish EP, Junto and Juntos Acoustic (November 11), Better Together Acoustic (November 19) and Better Together Remixes (November 25).
The group’s members are Ally Brooke Hernandez, Normani Hamilton, Dinah Jane Hansen, Camila Cabello, and Lauren Jauregui. Cumulatively, they have 70 million YouTube views, 625,000-plus Facebook “likes,” and over one million Twitter followers.
Other headliners in Palmdale’s summer concert series include country star Phil Vassar on Saturday, July 12, R&B legends The Whispers on July 26, and Banda Machos on August 2.
