Avicii Boasts First Electronic Music All-Arena Tour

Still riding high from Madonna visiting his Saturday night set at Ultra Music Festival, Avicii is headed out on the first electronic dance music tour to exclusively hit arenas... ever! So that's finally taken care of. 

The 22-year-old Swedish house DJ kicks off his North American Avicii Le7els tour on April 17 in Bridgeport, CT, and wraps it up Canadian-style in Saskatoon on July 4.

Aren’t you kinda surprised neither Moby nor Tiësto have embarked on an all-arena tour before? Maybe their random stops in local clubs along the way disqualified them from that honor. 

Regardless, here we are: EDM is now selling tickets in concert venues more accustomed to seeing KISS and Mötley Crüe fans. How does that grab you? Will you see Avicii in an arena or are you more partial to smaller-scale dance music performances?
