Avicii Plots First-Ever North American Arena Tour Headlined By An Electronic Artist


By Zachary Swickey

Swedish electronic dance DJ/producer Avicii has just revealed plans for a monumental North American tour that will be going down in May and June. Being dubbed the “Le7els Tour,” the outing is being touted by promoters as the very first all-arena North American tour by an electronic artist. (Has Daft Punk seriously never?)

The jaunt includes over a dozen dates, kicking off May 17 in Houston at the Reliant Arena, and includes big stops in cities like Tampa, Buffalo, and Boston.

“Goldenvoice is excited to be working with Avicii on his North American tour," Paul Tollett, of tour sponsor Goldenvoice, said about the hookup. "We can’t wait for his Coachella performance, from what we’ve seen and heard it’s going to be a highlight.”

In addition to his performances at Coachella (April 15 and 22), Avicci is scheduled to appear at New York’s iteration of the Electric Daisy Carnival festival at Met Life Stadium on May 19.

Avicii seems to be taking the DJ world by storm at the mere age of 22. His ridiculously catchy David Guetta collab “Sunshine” was nominated for a Best Dance Recording Grammy and this Saturday he’ll be headlining the biggest digital music festival in the United States: Miami’s Ultra Music Festival.

Tickets for the "Le7els" tour will go on sale Monday, March 26, at 12pm CDT on Ticketmaster. Ticket will cost you anywhere from $27 to $47.
