It’s a simple mistake, and one that’s been made oodles of times before. On Sunday night, The Chainsmokers played Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and before they left the stage, they unfurled a sign that misspelled the name of that beautiful city, leaving off the “H” that’s been neglected so many times before.
The electronic chart-dominating duo are currently on their Memories: Do Not Open Tour with Kiiara and Emily Warren, and before they played their last song, their debut album closer “Last Day Alive,” they waxed about how important Pittsburgh has been to them. That made the next move very ironic.
Here’s how Trib Live watched it go down:
The full band version of the song was met with much applause, before being dampened with a misspelled “Thank You Pittsburg” sign that came down at show’s end. It was obviously unfortunate, but even more so because Taggart made it a point to talk about how great the city had been to The Chainsmokers and not every city was as enthusiastic as Pittsburgh.
Of course, it wasn’t one of The Chainsmokers’ proudest moments, but they brushed it off by making a joke on Twitter: “lol totally putting our visual guy on blast for misspelling Pittsburgh at the end,” they wrote on Sunday. However, the tweet is now deleted. Perhaps it got too real with the visual guy.
They made another joke that was slightly funnier:
The Chainsmokers are only seven dates into their North American trek, which gives them plenty of time to hire a copy editor. They continue their Memories: Do Not Open Tour all the way until June.
