NEW YORK – Award-winning American dance-rock band DNCE will headline “Chase Sound Check,” performing a free concert at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center on Friday, August 26, as part of US Open Fan Week. Fans can reserve their free tickets today at www.ticketmaster.com/chasesoundche.
DNCE, led by frontman Joe Jonas, with Jack Lawless on drums and JinJoo Lee on guitar, released their RIAA quintuple-platinum certified single Cake By The Ocean in 2016. The song permeated the pop culture at large, becoming an unstoppable hit, crashing the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, and emerging as “one of the most-played songs of the year at Top 40 radio.” 2022 marks their momentous return as they teased their comeback on a collaboration with Kygo for the unshakable and undeniable anthem Dancing Feet before unleashing their official single Move.
Chase Sound Check returns to the US Open for the first time since 2019. It has previously featured performances for US Open attendees and music fans, including popular indie rock band LANY and Grammy award-winning singer Leon Bridges. The Chase Sound Check concert series initially launched in New York City in 2017 and has since expanded to several major cities and events around the country, including Los Angeles and Chicago, in 2022.
“We’re excited to partner with the USTA and return to the US Open, bringing fans closer to the music they love,” said Frank Nakano, Head of JPMorgan Chase’s Sports and Entertainment Marketing group. “As fans continue to return to live concerts and sporting events, we look forward to creating premium experiences for Chase cardholders and attendees through our Chase Sound Check platform and other leading properties in the world of sports and entertainment.”
Chase customers will also have access to an elevated viewing area for the Chase Sound Check performance. DNCE and the Chase Sound Check are just one of many free activities available for fans during US Open Fan Week, which is returning after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic.
USTA said that during US Open Fan Week, attendees could experience the sights and sounds of the US Open at no cost. It includes the opportunity to see world-class tennis players compete in the US Open Qualifying Tournament to secure a spot in the US Open Main Draw. Last year, Emma Raducanu started her journey to become the US Open Women’s Singles Champion during the Qualifying Tournament. In addition, tennis enthusiasts can watch the best players in the world, from just steps away, practice in the lead-up to the final Grand Slam event of the year – a fan experience unique to the US Open.
The 2022 US Open Main Draw will be from August 29 to September 11.
