Dillon Francis announces ‘Friends Rule’ North American headlining tour

Things are in full swing for Dillon Francis. The superstar DJ/producer is currently party-hopping from one city to another with Diplo‘s traveling Mad Decent Block Party circus, and he is fresh off a headlining slot at Los Angeles’ HARD Summer festival. Moreover, with a set-in-stone release date for his debut full-length studio album, Money Sucks, Friends Rulethe moombahton maven-turned-main stage heavyweight is moving at hyper speed and not slowing down anytime soon. To keep the momentum at an all time high, Dill is also announcing a massive North American tour, where he will be taking all of his new material on the road, this time as the marquee act.

While the “Friends Rule” tour officially begins on August 15th, the majority of the early dates are Block Party shows. The tour will be fully underway in mid-November as Francis hits Nashville, running all the way into the middle of January, where the tour will cap off at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. Although the “When We Were Young” producer has not announced any supporting acts on his tour yet, the tracklist from the album might indicate who we can expect to see out on the road with Dillon. Album collaborators include Major Lazer, Martin Garrix, and TJR, among others, proving that whoever Francis aligns himself with out on tour will surely be a worthy opening act. If all else fails, you can expect DJ alter-egos Hanzel and Rich as F**k to make show-stopping appearances.

With a set of Vegas dates scheduled, a trip to Chattahoochee Hills for this year’s TomorrowWorld installment and his Block Party duties, the recent Columbia Records recruit will be dropping an album and immediately follow up with a full North American tour to cap off the biggest year of his career. Grab your tickets when they go on sale Saturday, August 16th.
