In 2016, Zeds Dead set out on their “2 Night Stand Tour,” performing in iconic rock ‘n’ roll venues across the country. Earlier this year, the duo and their team shared how special the tour was, and now they’re bringing it back out on the road.
Zeds Dead will be spending two nights in Colorado, Idaho, Texas, Washington and Missouri, performing tracks from throughout the Canadian bass music duo’s 13-year career. The trek kicks off on Feb. 2 at Belly Up in Aspen, Colorado, and wraps up on March 16 at The Midland Theatre in Kansas City, Missouri.
“I think back of all these years of touring, and one of my favorite things that we did years ago was ‘2 Night Stand,'” Zeds Dead’s booking agent, Cody Chapman at Wasserman Music, told Pollstar earlier this year. “They went into some of the more renowned rock venues across the country that have storied histories. We’ve talked about it for years since. I’m excited to take that concept and renew it, without doing it in the same way. The idea is for the boys to play multi-night runs in great rock rooms that are more intimate, but let the real fans see the breadth of their catalog and what they can do over several nights.”
In addition to Zeds Dead’s upcoming “2 Night Stand Tour,” they’re heading to Chicago for three nights at the Salt Shed from Dec. 14 to 16.
Multiple nights in cities has been Zeds Dead’s model in recent years, with fans traveling across the country to catch their shows. The duo and their team sat down with Pollstar earlier this year, appearing on the cover in July. They also recently wrapped up two nights in Charlotte, North Carolina, as well as their annual three-day takeover in Denver, Colorado, taking place July 2-4.
This year’s “Deadrocks” performances at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado, grossed a total $1 million, with their “Deadbeats Backyard Jamboree” taking place on July 4 grossed $399,877. The duo wrapped up their Denver takeover with an after party at The Mission Ballroom in Denver on July 4, grossing $210,255, the three days (and four performances) grossing a total $1.6 million. Later on in the month, they performed at The Brooklyn Mirage in Brooklyn, New York, grossing $401,855.
Pre-sale for Zeds Dead’s “2 Night Stand Tour” begins on Nov. 9 at 10 a.m. local, with general on sale beginning Nov. 10 at 10 a.m. local.
