Dozens of fans circled The Tabernacle in Downtown Atlanta early in the morning of Tuesday, July 16 in hopes to be up close and personal with PRETTYMUCH: America's newest swoon-worthy boy band. The five boys - Austin Porter, Brandon Arreaga, Edwin Honoret, Nick Mara and Zion Kuwonu - are intriguing crowds with singing and dancing on the "FOMO Tour," which continues until August 16.

PRETTYMUCH invited kenzie, also known as Mackenzie Ziegler, on tour with them to hype up the crowd. Many people were already familiar with kenzie due to her long run on Lifetime's Dance Moms, but may not have been familiar with her incredible vocal skills. Along with her four backup dancers, she made singing and dancing at the same time look effortless. Most notably, she showed Atlanta her newest single, "HOT," the day before it premiered.
By the time PRETTYMUCH graced the stage, the crowd was already more than eager to sing and dance along with them. However, their introduction created even more hype. Each boy was individually spotlighted behind a curtain with flashing lights as an automated voice read the definition of "fomo" (fear of missing out) as if it were a treatable condition. Once the curtain dropped, they opened with their latest single, "Lying," which racked up more than 2 million plays on Spotify in only two weeks. The rest of the set was a perfect blend of songs from their latest EP, Phases, and earlier songs from just after Simon Cowell formed the band in 2016. Each song was full of high energy vocals and movement - but nothing that the crowd couldn't match. The crowd jumped and screamed so much that the floor of the Tabernacle was literally shaking. Talk about treating FOMO!
If you've never seen PRETTYMUCH perform, there's still a chance to do so, and you won't want to miss this performance of a lifetime. Tickets are available here - hurry before they sell out!
