While most DJ tours are all about taking flights from city to city, Sasha and John will be hitting the pavement, bussing it through the country. However, unlike Delta Heavy, this tour is about going back to their grass roots. "You know that's what it's all about -- giving the people a good time." Sasha and John
"Its been six years since Delta Heavy. Both Sasha and myself have been talking for ages about touring the states together again, but really wanted to go back to our underground roots as recently the only shows we have done together have been massive festival events. So this time around we are playing a great selection of clubs with great sound systems rather than big arena shows, which will give our fans a chance to see us in a more intimate environment." John Digweed
Sasha and John Digweed are truly bringing their sonic experience back to the people, and this tour offers something for every one of their fans. The tour will make stops at legendary rock venues such as the Warfield in and Webster Hall in NYC. In addition, many of the shows are 18+ and some are even all ages. And because many of these events are taking place in traditional rock venues their shows may start at 9 and end at 2, as opposed to a traditional club night which starts at 2am and ends at 6am. A rare exception indeed for Sasha and John Digweed fans.
“While Delta Heavy was billed as an arena tour it was the theatres and clubs where John and I had the most fun and where we felt our sound worked best. So this time around we decided to focus on those venues. Over the last 6 years we have played together a lot in LA and , and whilst I love those cities, I'm really looking forward to returning to places like DC, and , where John and I haven't shared the decks since 2002. Plus, spending time on the road with John on a bus touring the country is something I just couldn't turn down." - Sasha
For this tour, Sasha and John have partnered with Beatport and Wantickets for a very special promotion.
John Digweed's site: JohnDigweed.com
Those who purchase a ticket in advance through Wantickets will get a free Sasha/John Digweed track. In addition, for everyone who attends a show, Beatport will be giving a Beatport Download card which will give the fans another free track. It's just one way for Sasha and John Digweed to thank their fans for all their support.
Both Sasha and John Digweed will be releasing CDs to coincide with the tour.
More information on these releases to follow soon.
