The Italian producer/DJ lines up a 16-date bus tour taking him across the U.S. and Canada, calling it his largest string of consecutive shows on a single tour. Launching mid-October in Austin, stops include Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Seattle.

“I love the United States,” Benassi said. It’s one of my favorite places to play, so I’m really looking forward to getting on the bus, on the road and maybe even testing out some new music for my fans.
“It would take ages to tour the whole country on a bus, so we picked a specific route where the idea is to bring the show to places I don’t normally visit as well as some of my regular haunts. I’ll have my full visuals team with me and some great guests. I’m excited about this.”
