America, a whole lot more "bleeps" and "chainsaws" are coming your way!
After a monumental showing at Ultra Music Festival, Dutch electronic dance music star Afrojack, who headlines Coachella (again!) this weekend, will soon embark on one of the most ambitious undertakings of his career. He’ll be presenting his widely successful "Jacked" party at over 30 dates on a headlining tour of North America beginning in May.
Along for the ride will be much of his Afro-fam: buddies Quintino, Bobby Burns, R3hab and Shermonology (at select dates).
With smash radio hits in "Give Me Everything," "Look at Me Now" and his solo effort "Take Over Control," Afrojack (born Nick van de Wall) is easily one of dance music's most sought after performers, and he'll soon be bringing the ruckus to major US cities, including Las Vegas, Chicago, Atlantic City, Boston and Miami, and making major festivals appearances at the Electric Daisy Carnival stops in New York and Las Vegas and Seattle’s Paradiso Festival, among others, through early July.
Tickets will be available for purchase on Friday, April 20 at 10 a.m. local time in all U.S. markets at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com. Citi cardmembers will have access to presale tickets for select headlining dates starting on April 18 at 10 a.m. through Citi’s Private Pass Program.
