Chainsmokers Prepare For Sky High Performance

True to their recent “High” single lyrics, The Chainsmokers’ have agreed to get into a pressurized capsule tethered to a stratospheric balloon and perform some twenty miles above the Earth.

According to Ryan Hartman, chief executive officer at fledgling space tourism company World View, the high flying trek would make the dance/pop duo, Drew Taggart and Alex Pall, the first musical act to perform at the edge of space, said

Scheduled for 2024, World View stated that The Chainsmokers will be on one of the company’s inaugural flights and will record a performance from inside the capsule, providing viewers with the ability to experience the music and the trip firsthand.

In a statement about their futuristic gig, The Chainsmokers said “We have always dreamed of going to space and are stoked to collaborate with World View to have this adventure and experience.” “We know the views of both Earth and space are going to be incredible and inspiring and we hope to leverage this flight for creativity on future projects.”

In addition to their current ‘So Far So Good’ LP (including singles ‘High,’ ‘Riptide,’ ‘I Love U,’) The Chainsmokers have had five Top 10 Billboard Hot 100 hits, including “Closer” “Paris,” “Don’t Let Me Down” and “Something Just Like This” with Coldplay in 2017.
