It's not every day that you see a dance act set foot in an arena for a tour, let alone sell out nearly every stop. Enter Kygo, the Norwegian superstar who, at 26 years old, has accumulated well over three billion Spotify streams and collaborated with A-listers like Selena Gomez, U2 and most recently, Miguel.
He's only had one bona fide radio hit, "It Ain't Me with Gomez (No. 10 on Hot 100), but that hasn't stopped his fans from lining up by the thousands to see him perform on his Kids In Love tour. Myles Shear, Kygo's manager, says "the vision was to create an experience for fans in not only big rooms, but some of the coolest and most historic venues throughout Europe and North America."
While the streaming giant flexed in rooms like Toronto's Air Canada Centre and Chicago's United Center, where the capacities for his shows were 13,541 and 14,039 people, respectively, he also made a conscious effort to provide a more intimate experience in markets such as Washington D.C., where he played back-to-back nights at The Anthem, which holds 6,000 people.
