Moby Announces 33 North American Fall Tour Dates

First show for electronic-music icon will be Sept. 8 at Red Rocks in Denver area.

Esteemed electronic musician Moby will launch a North American tour Sept. 8 at the Red Rocks Amphitheater just outside of Denver.

A spokesperson for the Connecticut-bred techno pioneer confirmed 33 dates on Monday and said more would be announced.

In July Moby released Mobysongs: 1993–98, a greatest-hits collection covering his years with Elektra Records, before his 1999 album, Play, made him an international dance-music luminary.

Mobysongs includes the 1997 single "James Bond Theme," the live staple "Go," and "Feeling So Real" (RealAudio excerpt), from Moby's 1995 album, Everything Is Wrong.

Play, one of the most critically praised albums in recent years, continues to have an impact on sales and club charts, as all 18 songs from the album have been licensed for commercial use of some sort.

"Natural Blues" and "Porcelain" (RealAudio excerpt) were modern-rock staples this year, following the success of the 1999 hit "Bodyrock" (RealAudio excerpt).

Before hitting the United States, Moby will perform Saturday and Sunday, respectively, at the V2000 festival in Stafford and Chelmsford, England, and Aug. 23 at the club Privilege in Ibiza, Spain.
