Alesso Announces North American Tour

Sweden’s hottest new export isn’t petroleum oil or telephones or the latest model of Volvo. It’s Alessandro Lindblad, a Stockholm native better known as Alesso. The DJ and EDM producer has announced dates for what’s being called his first full North American tour.

Alesso has spent the year making the rounds at festivals on both sides of the Atlantic including Ultra, Creamfields, Tomorrowlands and Electric Zoo. He also held a residency at Las Vegas’ Light Nightclub and supported Swedish House Mafia on the group’s One Last Tour, in addition to doing a string of U.S. headlines dates.

As he gears up for his North American tour, Alesso has a lot to say on the subject.

“I have only been DJ’ing in front of crowds for just over two years. My fifth show was main stage EDC in Vegas and now I am playing huge venues and writing with legends like Calvin Harris and Ryan Tedder. Throughout the tour I will be giving away and premiering music that maps my two-year journey, which has been the best two years of my life, thanks to all of you.

“At the same time while I have traveled all around the world I have watched the scene I enjoy so much see the same rise. I have seen crowds from Asia to India to all across Europe and America as well as in my home country of Sweden, grow so fast it’s incredible. I never fully understand how the music travels so fast to every corner of the globe so when I land crowds are singing my brand new music right back at me…there is no feeling like that in the world….and it inspires me all the time.

“I felt like this huge explosion was as amazing for everyone else as it was for my own personal journey, like we were all in this together, taking to the dance floor, hands in the air, like it was an Uprising. Electronic music has re-written the rules on how we all go out, and every time I look a crowd in the eye I feel part of something. I feel like we grew up together while the world watches! And so Uprising will take to the streets in November, I hope you will join me, and I will announce more dates as soon as I can for the rest of the world.”
