NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - 07/20/11) - Electronic music producer Skrillex has announced yet another string of North American tour dates, meeting the mounting demand for his live experience head-on by playing venues with capacities in excess of 4000 people. This early-fall jaunt sees the young EDM producer sharing the bill with fellow native Los Angelino 12th Planet, live-production outfit Two Fresh as well as DC Moombahton practitioners Nadastrom. The Mothership Tour will showcase the first ever North American performances by UK rap/grime troupe ForeignBeggars as well. Highlights set to include two massive nights at Chicago's Congress Theater with Dada Life and other guests as well as a Halloween gathering in Bloomfield, Colorado with an expected turnout of 7,000 fans where the entire posse will be joined by Skream&Benga and Nero (live).Additionally, many cities will be privy to an official after-party featuring guests DillonFrancis, J. Rabbit, SteveDuda, AlvinRisk, and numerous surprise guests. In typical fashion, Skrillex will be armed to the teeth with bass, carrying an impressive sound-system powered by 50,000W of PK Sound on the tour. With such a dense schedule, it's impressive to think that these are just a fraction of Skrillex's 300+ performances slated for the next 12 months, including dates in Europe throughout November and December."This is going to be an incredible tour, I wanted a diverse lineup and I wanted to showcase great music, great people, and great times!" - SKRILLEXPRE-SALE TICKETS AVAILABLE JULY 20TH AT 3PM LOCAL VENUE TIME.
