Australian boy band 5 Seconds of Summer (5SOS) is bringing 30 shows of music to North America, stopping in Winnipeg along the way.

The pop punk band's first-ever headlining North American tour, Rock Out With Your Socks Out, kicks off July 17, 2015, in Las Vegas and includes shows in 26 cities across the U.S. and four in Canada.

It hits Winnipeg's MTS Centre on July 29, 2015.

The tour is in support of the band's self-titled debut album, which rocketed to the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 charts.

The announcement on Wednesday was immediately met by a torrent of excitement on social media.
