Jingle Ball Lineup
Another installment of the popular Jingle Ball concerts is just around the corner, and this year’s multi-city event is poised to be a memorable one. The full Jingle Ball 2016 lineup was unveiled on Oct. 11 following an earlier sneak peek that teased the likes of Charlie Puth, Daya, Diplo, and Fifth Harmony for select stops on the nationwide tour.
Major Jingle Ball headliners for 2016 include Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber, Britney Spears, The Chainsmokers, Meghan Trainor, Shawn Mendes, Backstreet Boys, Alessia Cara, Ariana Grande, Ellie Goulding, and G-Eazy.
Charlie Puth’s rise began in 2015 via his debut single “Marvin Gaye” with Meghan Trainor, and it ultimately led to a supporting spot for a handful of Jingle Ball concerts at the end of last year. He then opened 2016 with the release of his first album, “Nine Track Mind,” which peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard 200, and spawned a tour in support of it.
Fifth Harmony has enjoyed a similar jolt in popularity over the past year, fueled by their 2016 Gold-certified second studio album, “7/27.” Lead single “Work from Home” has been one of the year’s top hits, and its peak at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 became the group’s most successful track to date.
Rounding out the first wave of Jingle Ball 2016 lineup announcements are Diplo and Daya. Though they’ll be sharing the bill on various dates, the two are at very different points in their careers. The 37-year-old Diplo is a veteran of the industry, two-time GRAMMY winner, and lauded for his work as co-creator of Major Lazer, as well as one half of Jack U with fellow DJ, Skrillex.
Meanwhile, at just 17 years old, Daya’s career is just getting going, but is already off to a solid start. Her 2015 single, “Hide Away,” has been certified Platinum, and her debut studio album, “Sit Still, Look Pretty,” is set to be released on Oct. 7 amidst promising momentum.
The Weeknd to Headline Jingle Ball Toronto Debut
The Jingle Ball concert series will add another stop in 2016, as it was announced via tweet that Toronto will host The Weeknd, The Chainsmokers, Alessia Cara, Hedley, and more on Nov. 25 at the Air Canada Centre. All have enjoyed success in 2016, and the appearance for The Weeknd will come just days before the release of his new album featuring the hit single, "Starboy."
