When Swedish House Mafia announced that it was the end of the road, there was a small teaser that hinted that the guys would embark on one last journey together. Fast forward a couple of weeks, and we’ve learned that there would not only be a final tour, but also a final album. As usual, a massive marketing campaign for the #OneLastTour has taken the world by storm, but now we finally have the information that many people have been waiting for: the actual tour dates and locations.
As expected, the tour’s route is incredibly aggressive, and will bring the guys to over 15 countries in two separate tour legs. In total, there will be 26 shows — including six in the United States. Yes, the group will be making a return to Madison Square Garden on March 1st, but they will also be playing at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn (which is quickly becoming a concert hotspot) on the 2nd. Out on the west coast, they will be at Bill Graham Civic Center in San Francisco on February 16th, and will be ending the tour for good with one last Masquerade Motel fully produced by the SHM team at Historic Park, Los Angeles on March 9th.
The first leg of the tour kicks off on November 16th at World Trade Centre Dubai, before heading to India, Sweden, Denmark, and more cities in Europe throughout November and December. Things will start back up on January 25th in South Africa, before finally heading to the US and Canada in February and March.
Tickets will go on sale Friday September 28th at midday local time, except for shows in South Africa and India which will be on sale starting October 8th. Tickets are sure to move quickly (depending on where you are). We have a feeling that SHM will be making a big statement with this tour, and that they will be pulling out all the stops. If you consider yourself a fan, this is an absolute no brainer.
Update: Just like that SHM’s Facebook tells us that the “finale” will be announced soon. One last Masquerade Motel Miami during MMW 2013, perhaps?
