ALESSO has had one heck of a year thus far with mainstage performances at Ultra, Summerburst Sweden, Electric Zoo NYC (where he hinted the Uprising tour), Creamfields, Dance Valley Holland, Tomorrowland, Radio 1 Ibiza and Departures Ibiza, as well as supporting the mafias on their One Last Tour and residency at The Light Vegas. Next, he will headlining at Tomorroworld at the end of this month in Atlanta and the Stereosonic Festival in Australia in November. Of which he will conclude his monster year with a 14-stop North America tour: Uprising, spanning from the beginning of November until New Year’s Eve at Pier 94 in New York City.
Alesso, who just recently wrapped up a video shoot in Los Angeles with Calvin Harris and Theo Hurts for their new and unreleased track, “Under Control,” explained what the tour was all about:
”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 travelled 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”
