Swedish House Mafia, among the most popular EDM (electronic dance music) acts, has sold out all announced tour dates for their upcoming U.S. tour in a matter of minutes, according to a release from the group. The trio has said this tour will be its last.
The trek, called One Last Tour, will be their last and demand for tickets has been high causing additional shows to be added (among them, stops in New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago, starting in February, 2013).
Incredibly, the group has done this with total U.S. album sales of 57,000 units and total track sales of 897,000 units, according to Nielsen Soundscan.
The trio's two New York shows in March -- Madison Square Garden (they were the first DJ act to headline the arena) and Barclays Center -- sold out in less than 8 minutes, precipitating the addition of a two more Brooklyn shows (March 3 sold out, the March 4 date is on sale now).
A similar scenario played out in Chicago, where the group's Feb. 20 gig at the United Center sold out in 5 minutes. Three nights were added in San Francisco (Feb. 13, 14 and 15) along with a second show in Los Angeles on March 8.
Swedish House Mafia will close out the outing at LA's State Historic Park on March 9th where they will perform for some 35,000 people at part of their Masquerade Motel.
According to the act's label, EMI/Astralwerks, the international One Last Tour trek will be SHM's "most extensive and extravagant shows to date." It kicks off in Dubai on Nov. 16 and will also hit India, Russia and South Africa for the first time.
A companion comp, Until Now, is due out on Oct. 22nd. It features the song "Don't You Worry Child" whose video has received more than 7.7 million views in two weeks.
