The unstoppable force that is Grammy-nominated DJ and producer, Avicii, will be kicking off his LE7ELS tour in North America May 17 in Houston, TX. This tour will be the worlds first ever electronic dance music all arena tour and will also showcase production never before seen in the EDM world. Fans were given a preview during Avicii's performance at Coachella, but we wanted to find out more.
Why only arenas?
AVICII: It was something that we needed to do just because the kind of production we are bringing it won't fit anywhere else except in an arena.
What can fans expect with all this big production?
AVICII: It's going to be something completely new, it's going to be 3D mapping on an organic surface. Its kinda like an IMAX experience, it really feels like a show. There's nothing like this in the EDM world that's even remotely close to what we're doing. I'm really excited.
What kind of planning went into this tour?
AVICII: It's been in the works for about a year and it's been building for about six months. There's been a lot of money and time that's been put into it and we just finally revealed it, and we gave just a small taste of it at Coachella.
What are some of your favourite places to perform in North America?
AVICII: New York, I just love the crowd there so much. I would also say Las Vegas, it's just a different vibe there. It's so unique compared to anywhere else in the world...you can tell that everyone is just letting loose for the weekend.
What else can fans expect from you?
AVICII: There's always new music coming out, I just released my new single 'Silhouettes', then after that I don't know which track we'll release. In electronic music release dates always keep changing, I have a lot of tracks and a lot of material, so there's going to be lot of new stuff coming out.
