Fresh off stunning performances at both weekends of Coachella, French techno maestro Gessaffelstein has just announced dates for his forthcoming US tour, dubbed Requiem. The tour will kick off May 31 at Governors Ball in New York City, but won’t return until November, hitting every major city from San Francisco and Los Angeles to Denver and Detroit to Washington DC and Atlanta.
Gesaffelstein has made himself the pioneering name of techno, at least inasmuch as he’s begun the genre’s mainstreaming process over the past couple of years. He has been quite busy over the past few months, recently releasing his sophomore album, Hyperion, and the music video for “Blast Off,” his high-profile collaboration with Pharrell and the fifth song off the album.
Pre-sale for the Requiem tour begins Wednesday, April 24, at 10:00am PDT. General on-sale begins Friday, April 26, at 10:00am PDT. Head over to Gesaffelstein’s Facebook Page for full ticket information.
