Northern Italian DJ Benny Benassi is about to embark on an extensive 16-date bus tour across the U.S. and Canada, his largest string of consecutive shows on a single tour to date. Performing to an estimated 45,000+ people in just over two weeks, this tour is bound to sell out before the tires even hit the gravel. Joining the Don of house music across select dates will be tropical hard-house DJ and fellow Italian Congorock, the “Play Hard” or go home Chicago trio Krewella and a fresh new talent about to storm the scene, Pink Is Punk (whose new single with Benny Benassi “Perfect Storm” will be out on October 16 via Ultra Music). “I love the United States.  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,” says BENASSI.   “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.” Kicking off October 17 in Austin, the tour will blaze a trail through Texas with seven dates in the Lone Star state alone—but it doesn’t stop there. BENNY and co. will continue travelling across the country and up the West Coast through Tempe, Las Vegas, Oakland, Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Barbara and all the way to Vancouver, the final stop on the tour. Ways to get involved will be announced soon so stay tuned.  For more information please head to: www.bennybenassi.com.
