Multi-platinum, GRAMMY award-winning artist Zedd has announced he will hit the road for his fall True Colors Tour, un-leashed by T-Mobile which kicks off September 4th in San Francisco and criss-crosses North America through October 31st making stops at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. All dates are below and more will be announced soon.
“I’m incredibly excited to announce my True Colors Tour! This will be my first headline tour in over two years and I can’t wait to get back on the road and play all my new music. I’ve got some really special things planned for this tour and the show is going to be next level. Stay tuned for more dates and special guest announcements.”
Citi is the official credit card of Zedd’s fall tour. Citi cardmembers will have access to presale tickets beginning Tuesday, May 12th at 10 a.m. through its Private Pass Program. A fan pre-sale launches on May 14th at noon ET. Tickets go on sale to the general public on May 21st. Fans can also pre-order special bundles to gain early access to tickets. There are three main bundles, and in addition to early access to tickets, the deluxe bundle includes the CD, Digital Download and “True Colors” t-shirt. VIP packages are available for every tour date – details available via local box offices and at CID Entertainment.
Zedd will release his hotly anticipated second album, entitled True Colors, on May 18th via Interscope Records. Zedd executive-produced the album and co-wrote all the songs. True Colors is the follow-up to Zedd’s 2012 debut album Clarity, which spawned five singles, including the Grammy-winning title track, and cemented Zedd as a global star. True Colors’ first single, “I Want You To Know,” featuring Selena Gomez, spent four weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart. Written and produced by Zedd, with contribution from OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, the uplifting pop-influenced dance track was dubbed USA Today’s “Song of The Week” in late February, while Refinery29 said: “We’re calling it: This is the turn-up song for spring.” The video for “I Want You To Know” has racked up more than 32 million views on Vevo. Watch it HERE.
Fans have been buzzing about Zedd’s very special roll-out of the #ZeddTrueColors campaign, in partnership with T-Mobile, in which 50 fans in 10 different cities get to hear a new song from the album, party with other fans, and meet Zedd at color-themed events in very special locations around the U.S. As part of the experience, fans will listen to each new song on brand new matching colored Beats By Dr. Dre headphones.
Events have already taken place in Austin (a purple-themed party at Longhorn Cavern State Park where Zedd unveiled “Addicted to Memory” ft. Bahari); the Mojave Desert outside Los Angeles (an orange-themed party at the Integratron in Joshua Tree where fans got to hear “Straight Into The Fire”); Phoenix (a yellow-themed party on Lake Pleasant where Zedd revealed “Bumble Bee”); San Francisco (a pitch black-themed party at Alcatraz Island where he unveiled “Transmission,” featuring Logic and X Ambassadors); and Denver (a blue-themed party at The Stanley Hotel, which inspired The Shining, where he revealed “Illusion”). Last week, Zedd threw a magenta-themed party in Chicago at the Shedd Aquarium where he played his new single “Beautiful Now,” featuring Jon Bellion. Yesterday, lucky winners in Philadelphia were taken to Fonthill Castle for a white-themed party where they got their first listen to the song “Paper Cut” featuring Troye Sivan.
