Following his epic return to the live stage at Coachella, Gesaffelstein has announced a run of tour dates for fall. Kicking off on November 7 in San Francisco, CA, the tour will make stops in major markets including Los Angeles, Chicago and Boston before wrapping in Atlanta on November 27. Tickets for the tour will go on sale on Friday, April 26 at 10am local time. Please check HERE for additional information and see full list of tour dates below.
The upcoming tour will feature all new live production, which Gesaffelstein debuted at Coachella in the darkest performance ever.
His set features the exclusive use of Vantablack VBx2, making Gesaffelstein the first artist ever to use the substance in a live performance. Vantablack is the super-black coating used primarily in space applications which holds the world record as the darkest substance made by man. Gesaffelstein’s set features a monolith design using the coating, which was applied to the concave surface of the monolith to create the illusion of infinite depth and blackness – a black hole on stage. See additional information about Vantablack HERE.
Gesaffelstein’s sophomore album Hyperion is out now via Columbia Records. ListenHERE. Check out the official music video for “Blast Off” featuring Pharrell Williams, which premiered in the Coachella livestream, HERE.
