Known for their chart-topping hits like ‘Cupid’s Chokehold,’ ‘Stereo Hearts’ (feat. Adam Levine), ‘The Queen and I,’ and ‘Ass Back Home’ (feat. Neon Hitch), Gym Class Heroes have left an indelible mark on the global music scene. Originating in the late 90s, the band has evolved into key figures in the indie rock industry and trendsetters in the rap-rock genre.

Frontman Travie McCoy, who graced Australia and New Zealand last year at the 2023 edition of Fridayz Live, delivering hits from his solo career, including ‘Billionaire’ feat. Bruno Mars, ‘Golden’ feat. Sia, and ‘We’ll Be Alright,’ showcased the enduring love fans hold for Gym Class Heroes.

Having focused on solo projects in recent years, Gym Class Heroes reunited in 2023, treating fans to an unforgettable performance at the When We Were Young Festival alongside Green Day, Blink-182, and Thirty Seconds to Mars. They also joined All Time Low on their ‘The Sound Of Letting Go on Tour,’ receiving a massive reception from fans old and new. The band’s timeless appeal was reaffirmed with the release of the Club Mix of their 2005 hit ‘Cupid’s Chokehold,’ featuring Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump.

With Travie McCoy’s return to Australia within a year, the anticipation for Gym Class Heroes as a full band’s return is sky-high. Known for unwavering vocals and infectious energy, these special headline shows promise an unmissable experience for fans.
