Not since his massive 2012 Deadmeat and 2013 Aokify America major treks has STEVE AOKI criss-crossed the continent on a full production tour. His NEON FUTURE EXPERIENCE show will support his current album NEON FUTURE I (Dim Mak/Ultra Music), while giving fans a taste of the second installment of the album, NEON FUTURE II, set for release this spring. The tour will hit over 40 cities that include New York City, Montreal, Washington D.C., Houston, El Paso, Phoenix, San Diego, Boston, Denver, St. Louis, Chicago and more. Other stops outside of the tour include his residency at Hakkasan in Las Vegas at MGM Grand, EDC Puerto Rico and the Air & Style Festival in Los Angeles. Additional dates will be announced soon.
The NEON FUTURE EXPERIENCE will feature a brand new custom stage set & visuals by V Squared Labs, whose works have been featured on the main stages of Electric Daisy Carnival and Ultra Music Festival. This new NEON FUTURE design combines custom built LED cubes with mirrored panels to create a new visual experience, giving fans the illusion of both depth and clarity never before seen in stage production.
One dollar ($1) of each ticket sold for the STEVE AOKI NEON FUTURE EXPERIENCE shows will go towards the Steve Aoki Charitable Fund. Named the Most Charitable DJ by edm.com, the label owner, DJ, producer and fashion executive has always made it a point to take a proactive stance when it comes to social and humanitarian issues.
