INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) - The rising pop-rock band 5 Seconds of Summer gave its feverish female fans the surprise of a lifetime by personally selling tickets Saturday morning for an upcoming concert in Inglewood, California.

Many fans, including 13-year-old Trina Umana, camped out overnight at The Forum to get seats for the Australian group’s first U.S. headlining concert on Nov. 15.

“I can’t speak right now. I’m too overwhelmed,” she sobbed after purchasing her tickets from guitarist Michael Clifford.

The quartet is currently opening for One Direction on their “Where We Are” tour.

Their self-titled debut album featuring Top 40 hits “She Looks So Perfect” and “Amnesia” came out last week.

The band’s EP dropped in March and debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
