Fatboy Slim will visit unique venues on his seven-date North American tour, which kicks off Nov. 10 at Film Studios in Toronto. At that gig, the artist will recreate the set from his "Slash Dot Dash" video, while at the following night's show in Chicago, the Metro will be turned into the "Palookaville" train station.
Fatboy Slim's new album of the same name debuted earlier this month at No. 14 on the U.K. album chart and No. 1 on Billboard's Top Electronic Albums tally. Astralwerks is prepping the release of a 12-inch vinyl single for "Wonderful Night" featuring Lateef, with remixes by Blackalicious' Chief Xcel and DJ Marky.
The day before the tour kicks off, Fatboy Slim will make his live U.S. television performance debut on NBC's "Late Night With Conan O'Brien." Elsewhere on the trek, he will drop in on Los Angeles' Natural History Museum and at a loft party at New York's Drive-In Studios.
"With the new album, it's back to real song structures -- almost proper songs, which have never appeared on a Fatboy Slim record before," says Slim, who plays bass and guitar on "Palookaville." He adds, " 'Palookaville' is not a DJ's record. It's a record for the public -- for playing at home and in the car."
