The North American spring headline tour supports Why Don't We's just released debut full length album, 8 LETTERS.

A worldwide phenomenon, the album also topped charts in over 20 more territories around the globe. 8 LETTERS is available now at all music retailers and streaming services. Download/stream HERE.
Yesterday, thousands of Why Don't We fans packed New York City's Rockefeller Plaza and the surrounding streets to watch the group's special Labor Day concert for NBC's TODAY, drawing the show's biggest crowd of the summer. The performance kicked off a series of high profile TV appearances celebrating the release of 8 LETTERS. Next up, the band will perform on the nationally syndicated Live with Kelly and Ryan on Thursday, Sept. 6. The media blitz continues the following week with appearances on MTV's TRL on Monday, Sept. 10, and CBS' The Late Late Show with James Corden on Tuesday, Sept. 11 (check local listings).
The band is currently in the midst of a massive globetrotting, world tour, which has recently taken their exhilarating live show overseas throughout Asia - including stops in Thailand, Singapore, South Korea, Japan, China, Taiwan and the Philippines - and Australia before returning stateside. October will see Why Don't We crossing the Atlantic for their biggest European tour thus far, with shows scheduled in Spain, France, Ireland, the Netherlands, Germany, and the United Kingdom, culminating in an Oct. 25 finale at London's famed Eventim Apollo Hammersmith.
This fall, Why Don't We is also set to release their official autobiography, In The Limelight. Published by Harper Collins, the book features never-before-seen photos and behind-the-scenes info about the young group's incredible journey. In The Limelight is set for release on Oct. 30.
