During his recent summer world tour, Deadmau5 was certainly a rather ill Mau5 after collapsing on stage a few weeks ago and being forced to sit-out the rest of the tour under doctor's orders. Hopefully he's better now and to strengthen the first signs of recovery, a new UK tour has been announced for December.
The first date is in Bournemouth on the 8th, followed by Leeds, Manchester and more until London's Earls Court on the 18th. Tickets go on sale on Thursday at 9am, priced at around £27.50 plus fees (London is £30). And did we mention 'all-star'? We certainly did.
For Bournemouth and Leeds, you get upcoming Birmingham-based house-producer and remixer, Kim Fai (recently the transformer of Inner City's "Good Life"), Manchester and Coventry will see Zane Lowe and Magnetic Man join the bill, Glasgow will feature those two plus Calvin Harris and London swaps the legendary break-beatsters Stanton Warriors for Harris. Bargain.
His recent "Play 3" album has just been followed up by the 12" "Animal Rights" with fellow electro-head Wolfgang Gartner.
