Nero To Join Madonna On North American Leg Of 'MDNA Tour' This Fall

Nero

London dubstep duo Nero are the latest dance superstars set to join Madonna’s "MDNA Tour."

Nero, comprised of British-born producer-DJs Dan Stephens and Joe Ray, will open for M on the North American leg of her world tour, which kicked off last week in Tel Aviv, Israel, and just wrapped up a sold-out two-show run in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

Nero will open the show with a DJ set, featuring live vocals from Alana.

The group are the latest dance music stars enlisted by the Queen of Pop to open her largest-ever tour. Israeli DJ and producer Offer Nissim was the show-opener for the tour kick-off in Tel Aviv and Italian producer-DJ Benny Benassi, who produced three tracks on Madonna's most recent album MDNA, including the single "Girl Gone Wild" and "I'm Addicted" (one of the albums best tracks), handled the decks for the pop superstar's Abu Dhabi shows.

Nero recently appeared at Coachella, Sasquatch and the Electric Daisy Carnival NYC festivals and is also set to perform several shows on this summer’s IDentity Festival, as well as at Lollapalooza in Chicago and Hard Summer Los Angeles in August.

The "MDNA Tour" travels next to Istanbul, Turkey, the first stop on the 29-show European leg of the tour, where Madonna will be joined on selected dates by Alesso and Martin Solveig. Sloveig served as house DJ at Sunday's 2012 MTV Movie Awards and brought the house down with his own remixes of some of the most iconic movie themes of all time, from "Star Wars'" "Imperial March" to "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly Theme." Sloveig also produced several songs on Madonna's album, including the top ten single "Give Me All Your Luvin'" and one of our personal favorites, "Turn up The Radio."

Nero will take over when Madonna arrives in the U.S. on August 28 for an already sold-out show at Philadelphia's Wells Fargo Center. The group is also currently hard at work on the follow-up to their Welcome Reality album.
