“The whole world has watched this show now,” says Hardwell. “It’s finally time to bring this concept to America.”

While additional tour dates will be announced, the first round of shows will take place in Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Miami and New York. Hardwell’s Revealed Recordings label mate Dannic will join the tour as a special guest.

The tour will wrap up in the same city it was announced with Hardwell’s November 15th debut at Madison Square Garden, which he called “the best venue in the world.

Spanning 19 countries to date, the “I Am Hardwell” concept features the Dutch artist playing three-hour sets that span his entire musical trajectory, from early tracks to unreleased tunes off his forthcoming artist album.

“It’s more like a concert than a DJ set,” says Hardwell. “It’s a big step to develop myself as an artist. Normally, there are a lot of other artists on the lineup, but it’s so different when you play the same size arena for people who just bought a ticket to see you.”
