Since his emergence on the scene a few short years ago, nobody can deny the fact that Skrillex has been taking over the world. Redefining the American dance music scene — nearly single-handedly — the former screamo frontman became the,”most famous haircut and glasses combo in the music business,” and in early 2014 he will be proving exactly why the throne at the top of it all is rightfully his. The captain of the OWSLA squad, without a hint of prior notice, has announced a series of concerts in early 2014; spanning four cities, a total 21 crazy nights. In appropriate fashion, Skrillex is calling the shows “Takeovers.”
Last week with unfortunately having to cancel Dog Blood appearances at Stereosonic Music Festival, Sonny took to Facebook to explain he will be spending the rest of the year to finish up his arsenal of brand new music. Now we have word that, come February 2014, San Francisco, Brooklyn, Amsterdam, and Barcelona will be ruthlessly conquered, as OWSLA overlord plays multiple back-to-back shows in each city.
Supporting acts have not been announced yet. However, with Skrillex’s recent “Fall Club Tour” having boasted support by trap music heavy-hitters Valentino Khan and Bro Safari, and past support from the likes of Porter Robinson, 12th Planet, Kill The Noise and a slew of other all star names, opening acts for the “Takeovers” will most likely be the most sought after names in bass music. Typical Skrillex.
Pre-sale tickets are now available for purchase, and tickets will officially go on sale Friday. Each concert venue is incredibly intimate, so tickets will go quickly. With an enormous wave of new music under the hood, and a voracious appetite, Skrillex will be taking over in early 2014. Be ready.
