Skrillex, Diplo ready for Canadian train trek
The trans-Canadian tour gets underway July 13 in Toronto, and ventures through another five cities before that month's end. Tickets for the outing go on sale beginning May 12 via the event's website.
The trio of acts will be joined by Pretty Lights, KOAN Sound and Tokimonsta on the journey, which was inspired by the 1970 train tour made by the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin and The Band. Mumford & Sons and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes embarked on a similar trip entitled the "Railroad Revival Tour" last year.
In December, Skrillex unveiled his latest EP, "Bangarang," which peaked at No. 14 on The Billboard 200 and at the top of the magazine's Dance/Electronic Albums chart. The dubstep DJ is also slated to perform next month at Bonnaroo in Manchester, TN.
