The Chainsmokers performed at the Sunset Music Festival at Raymond James Stadium in 2016. They'll return to Tampa to play Amalie Arena in April.
The Chainsmokers have announced their first full-length album, and they're bringing the 40-date Memories: Do Not Open tour to Tampa.

The tour will also feature Kiara, the singer who teamed up with The Chainsmokers for another one of their best-known tracks, Roses, and Emily Warren, who sings on the duo's Until You Were Gone.
