Skrillex announces “Mothership Tour”: three months, nearly 50 cities

Can you believe it’s only been one year since Sonny Moore released his original EP for free on the internet under the moniker Skrillex? In an effort to meet the ever-increasing demand for his unique blend of hard hitting electro and dubstep, he has just announced a densely packed North American tour dubbed The Mothership Tour, on which he will be headlining and performing at the largest venues of his career.

He’ll be sharing the bill with some of the biggest names in dubstep and moombahton, including 12th Planet, Two Fresh, Nadastrom, and the UK rap/grime troupe Foreign Beggars. Highlight sets include two massive nights at Chicago’s Congress Theater with the banana tossing, sausage fattening, phenoms Dada Life, as well as a an eardrum splitting, face melting Halloween set with Skream & Benga along with Nero.

This tour is definitely not for the feint of heart, so if you’re interested you should be near a computer on July 20th at 3PM local time, which is when the first pre-sale tickets become available here. We’ve got the full list of show dates and locations is available after the break.
