In between his own headlining dates in the Far East and Europe, Paul Oakenfold will launch a three-week all-DJ U.S. tour July 3 in New York. Playing venues with capacities from 1,000 to 10,000, he will lead a bill that will also feature Deep Dish, Ferry Corsten, Junkie XL and Sandra Collins on various dates.
"It's going to be a lot of fun for us and I'm sure the crowds will enjoy the journey we've got in store for them," Oakenfold says. "With this tour, it's not just about one genre of electronic music. I like the idea of bringing together different DJs for different sets."
The Perfecto on Tour will also feature Armin Van Buuren, Hernan Cattaneo, Fergie and Liquid Todd rotating through various shows. The run will make 17 stops, closing July 23 at the Global Dance Festival at the famed Red Rocks amphitheater in Morrison, Col., with Deep Dish, Bad Boy Bill, Junkie XL, Dieselboy, Motorcycle, Kostas, Ty Tek, Dragon, Trajikk, Shawn Mitiska, Kevin Alves and Friends in Stereo all on the bill.
Oakenfold will next play Bangkok on Saturday (June 18). After the Perfecto on Tour dates, he has a slate of European appearances that includes several visits to dance mecca Ibiza, Spain, as well as performances in Vienna, Barcelona and London.
