THE COSMOPOLITAN OF LAS VEGAS WELCOMES MULTIPLATINUM INDIE POP TRIO AJR TO THE CHELSEA ON JUNE 24, 2022
Tickets on sale Friday, Sept. 24 at 10 a.m. PST
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas welcomes multiplatinum indie pop trio AJR to The Chelsea on Friday, June 24, 2022 as a stop on their OK ORCHESTRA Tour. Tickets for the much-anticipated performance go on sale at 10 a.m. PST Friday, Sept. 24.
AJR recently released a quirky and infectious new single, “Record Player,” with indie pop trio Daisy the Great. Incorporating the hook from Daisy the Great’s 2017 release “The Record Player Song,” the new track is a hook-laden jam about finding identity and the growing pains of early adulthood.
Over the past 2 weeks, “Record Player” has been one of the most added tracks at Alternative radio and already climbed into the top 30 with major market support coming from KYSR/Los Angeles, KKDO/Sacramento, WSUN/Tampa, and KTCL/Denver. “Record Player” is also connecting on TikTok where the chorus has generated over 280mm views to date. AJR has been performing the track each night with Daisy the Great on the first leg of the OK ORCHESTRA Tour.
“Record Player” follows AJR’s “Way Less Sad,” which generated more than 120 million total streams, spent 15 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 and reached No. 2 at Alternative radio, Top 20 at Pop radio and Top 10 at Adult Pop radio. The group performed a medley of it with their 3x platinum hit “BANG!” at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards, which Billboard praised by saying, “the line ‘I’m A-OK’ hit particularly hard as the countless fans gathered outside sang along – a fitting moment as the world continues to emerge from the ongoing pandemic.” They also took home their first-ever Billboard Music Award for Top Rock Song with “BANG!” at the show.
Both “Way Less Sad” and “BANG!” are featured on the group’s acclaimed new album OK ORCHESTRA, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Alternative and Rock albums charts and claimed the #10 spot on the Billboard 200.

Re-envisioning what pop can be in the 21st century, AJR unassumingly emerged as a ubiquitous hit-making outlier and one of the biggest indie bands in the world. Since 2012, the multiplatinum indie pop trio—Adam [bass, vocals], Jack [vocals, guitar], and Ryan [ukulele, piano, vocals]—have generated billions of streams and earned one triple-platinum single, one double-platinum single, four platinum singles, and one platinum album. 2019’sNeotheater marked their biggest first-week debut, bowing at #8 on the Billboard Top 200, #1 on the Top Alternative Albums Chart, and #1 on the Top Rock Albums Chart. Cemented as part of the modern zeitgeist, Spotify touted “Sober Up” [feat. Rivers Cuomo] among the “Best Rock Songs of the 2010s,” while Apple Music included “Weak” on its “Best Alt Songs of the 2010s.” Not to mention, they remain one of the “500 Most-Listened to Artists” on Spotify. On the heels of Neotheater, they dropped the 2020 platinum blockbuster “BANG!”, which they performed on TODAY, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and even at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The song also cracked the Top 10 at three radio formats, peaking at No. 6 on the Top 40 chart, No. 2 on Alternative radio and No. 1 on Adult Pop and marked their first Top 10 entry on the Billboard Hot 100. Now, the band open up their world like never before on their fourth full-length album, OK ORCHESTRA [AJR Productions/BMG] introduced by the single “Way Less Sad.”
