The Allstar Nation Tour , in collaboration with the Stand Up Tour, will host a concert featuring popular boy band “IM5” and several other young national recording artists at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, August 19 at the Miramar Theater in Milwaukee.
The Allstar Nation Tour is an anti-bullying music tour based in Houston that features recording artists ages 12 to 20 who perform and speak out against bullying. Artists are well-known among their peers and perform Top 40 and original songs. Between performances, they speak out against bullying, share personal experiences and bullying prevention methods.
“IM5” is a five-member boy band co-founded in 2012 by Spice Girls and American Idol creator Simon Fuller, creative director Jamie King, and blogger and television personality Perez Hilton.
The band fuses pop and rhythm and blues melodies with vocal harmonies and dance routines. Members include Cole Pendery, 18, of Dallas, Texas; Will Jay Behlendork, 18, of Los Angeles; Gabriel Morales, 19, of Miami, FL; Dana Vaughns, 16, of Pittsburgh, PA; and David Scarzone, 18, of Chicago, Illinois.
“Everything About U,” the band’s first digitally released song, caught the attention of Radio Disney programming directors, who put the song in rotation lasting the year. The band has headlined multiple Radio Disney Live events and was recently nominated for a Radio Disney Music Award for Ultimate Breakout Star.
Five other artists are scheduled to perform. Among them include Texas natives Branden Mendoza, 20, who competed on NBC’s The Voice Season 6 held earlier this year; pop singer Tristan Blaine, 15, a fan favorite who refer to themselves as “Blaniacs”; The House on Cliff band, a high energy, feel-good rock band from Boston; Nashville recording artist Jessie Chris, 16, who has opened for several country stars such as Chris Young and Ayla Brown; and Australian-born Danielle Prou , 13, of Los Angeles, who is often compared to Alicia Keys.
General Admission tickets are $15.00 each.
