(May 16, 2013) – X Factor breakout band Emblem3 announced today that they will join Selena Gomez’s worldwide “Stars Dance” tour as the opening act of the tour’s 41 North American dates. The dates, which will mark Emblem3’s first extensive North American tour, kick off Aug. 14 in Vancouver, BC and continue through cities across the U.S. including Boston, Philadelphia, Houston, Los Angeles and Chicago before wrapping in St. Louis on Nov. 27. Tickets for all dates are on sale now at

“We’re so psyched to be touring North America and Canada later this year, hitting a bunch of cities our fans haven’t seen us in yet,” said Emblem3. “ We’ve been looking to get back out and couldn’t think of anyone more dope than Selena to do it with. Gonna be a fun ride!”

The band’s current single “Chloe (You’re The One I Want)” debuted in April and is available digitally at The summer jam, described by The Hollywood Reporter as “a mix of sugary pop confection and a Sublime-inspired beach vibe,” was co-written by Emblem3 and Savan Kotecha, Kool Kojak and Peter Svensson. Emblem3 celebrated the single’s release with the fan driven “Goin’ Back 2 Cali” roadtrip, a free tour where the band visited 9 cities voted on by fans. That tour followed a string of shows throughout February and March that sold out in under a minute, and saw Emblem3 adding multiple tour dates to their itinerary due to overwhelming demand from fans.

Emblem3 – Brothers Wesley and Keaton Stromberg and lifelong friend Drew Chadwick – are currently in the studio at work on their debut album, which is being executive produced by award winning songwriter and producer Savan Kotecha (Maroon 5, Usher, One Direction). The album will be the first release on “Mr Kanani,” Savan Kotecha’s imprint on Syco Music released through Columbia Records in Summer 2013.

Selena fans have been in a frenzy since she premiered the single “Come & Get It” from her forthcoming album and announced her global touring plans. Tickets were in such high demand that an additional show was added in London.

“I couldn’t be more excited to tour again but this time around the world,” said Selena. “This has been such an interesting few months. My music has grown and I want my fans to see a new side of me. Can’t wait to see y’all on the road!”

As an artist, Selena has already sold more than 10 million singles in the U.S., along with three RIAA-certified top-ten debuting  gold albums, and three #1 Billboard Dance Singles. Her last album, When The Sun Goes Down with Selena Gomez & The Scene was released June 28, 2011 and was certified gold in November of that year.
