We told you that global superstar DJ trio Swedish House Mafia were not going to go quietly into that good night.
The appropriately named "One Last Tour" has been teased on the band's website for a week, with pins dropped across the world asking fans to "connect the dots" to figure out where the trek would take them. A week after the three-dot logo representing the tour began appearing all around the globe — with 20,000 sightings on everything from planes to digital projections on landmarks — the Dancing Astronaut EDM blog was the first to put the clues together and figure out the locations of 10 of the dates before the full slate was revealed on Monday (September 24).
"There's gonna be a lot of presents, we're going to try and say hello and goodbye to some people that we never met and some that we have met," Axwell told MTV News at the iHeartRadio Music Festival over the weekend. "We're going to try and touch as many as we can." In fact, they're playing three shows in Sweden, the country that gave them their name.
"We've never done Sweden and we got an opportunity ... we were waiting for the right moment," explained Angello. "This is it."
The trio's most extensive tour will kick off in Dubai on November 16 and will include their first-ever gigs in India, Russia and South Africa. It will hit North American shores in February, including back-to-back dates at Madison Square Garden and the new Barclays Center in New York. All tickets for the shows will go on sale on Friday.
Axwell said he's looking forward to the vibe on the crowd, because he predicted it would be an emotional experience. "We actually have done one show since we announced that we are finalizing ... and that was insanely intense and emotional. We know we're going to have some of the best shows of our lives."
The group's second compilation album, Until Now, will be released on October 22 in two formats, a 10-track version and a deluxe edition with an additional 12 songs. The album is the official soundtrack to their One Last Tour and it will feature a collection of the original tracks, remixes, exclusive collaborations, club favorites and solo productions.
Among the notable tracks are the recently released single, "Don't You Worry Child," featuring Swedish singer John Martin and the previously unreleased Coldplay vs. Swedish House Mafia version of "Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall."
The album also has the popular club tracks "Calling," "In My Mind," Angello and Third Party's "Lights" and the trio's exclusive remix of Usher's "Euphoria."
