Alesso-real-name Alessandro Lindblad, a Stockholm native of Italian ancestry and Sweden's hottest new export--has announced his first full North American Tour. After selling out the famousBrixton Academy in London and teasing the internet with CCTV footage, an Uprising will be coming across the Atlantic this November
Launching November 2 with his residency show at LIGHT at Mandalay Bay in Los Vegas, ALESSO's tour covers most major North American cities with stops at such landmark venues as Sound Academy in Toronto, The Shrine in Los Angeles, The Park at Petco Park in San Diego and Aragon Ballroom in Chicago. There is also a major New Years Eve show at Pier 94 in New York City.
ALESSO has had a massive year with main stage shows at Ultra, Summerburst Sweden, Electric Zoo, Creamfields, Dance Valley Holland, Tomorrowlands,Radio 1 Ibiza and Departures Ibiza, supporting Swedish House Mafia on One Last Tour andresidency at The Light Vegas. Next he will appear at Tomorroworld at the end of September inAtlanta and the Stereosonic Festival in Australia in November.
From his debut single "Nillionaire" and breaking through with the dark and energized "Raise Your Head," ALESSO has had successive Beatport chart toppers via Refune Records label of Sebastian Ingrosso of Swedish House Mafia who signed the artist to his label and management company two years ago. His discography is one to be desired, with "Calling" alongside Sebastian Ingrosso, "Years" ft Matthew Koma, the 2013 summer anthem "If I Lose Myself," a One Republic remix to his latest collaboration with Calvin Harris featuring Theo Hurts, "Under Control."
