DJ Shadow Announces Second Leg of 2024 Tour Dates

On the heels of a highly successful and sold out 30+ date headlining tour this past winter, DJ Shadow has announced a second leg of dates that will bring him across Europe/UK this summer and North America in October to celebrate his latest album Action Adventure. Starting October 3 in Kansas City, the North American Action Adventure Tour stops in cities that the pioneering DJ and producer hasn’t played in years. Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday at 10AM local time. See below for the full itinerary and go here for tickets and pre-sale information:

Action Adventure – released in October on Mass Appeal / Liquid Amber – features 14 mostly instrumental tracks that represent a continued evolution for DJ Shadow. His eighth studio album, it’s a thrilling new addition to an influential body of work defined by a restless ear, always searching to rescue some forgotten gem from the dustbin of music history or a fresh blast of sound from the cutting edge.

Tied to the new album release, Shadow was profiled by Stereogum and SPIN, and interviewed by Zane Lowe on his Apple Music show. Additional album coverage includes The Fader, Billboard, NPR’s New Music Friday and more. He also sat down for a Q&A with Zane Lowe at the GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles, was interviewed on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, World Cafe and his KEXP live performance session just debuted last week. His first proper tour since 2017 kicked off in January of this year, and included sold out headline performances at Webster Hall in New York City and The Fonda in Los Angeles.

Leading up to the release of Action Adventure, Shadow released music videos for album singles “Ozone Scraper” and “You Played Me” – two songs that show off the synth-heavy sonic worlds that he explores throughout the record. “You Played Me” was the result of serendipity, dropping the needle on an a capella track of a record he’d never listened to, over a beat that recalls a lost early 80s R&B classic. He says of the track, “it’s one of my favorite songs I’ve ever made.” The music video was filmed in a still-operating cassette tape manufacturer in Missouri – National Audio Company – and Shadow has been hiding cassette tapes of the single at indie record stores worldwide.

DJ Shadow has been releasing music for over thre decades. His landmark debut Endtroducing…..was released in 1996, is considered one of the finest albums of that decade, and continues to influence new generations of artists. In thepast few years he’s reached some tremendous new heights. 2016’s The Mountain Will Fall featured “Nobody Speak” with Run The Jewels. That single has long since gone gold, has nearly100 million streams on Spotify, and continues to seep into the public consciousness as a soundtrack to countless spots in film and on TV. He returned in 2019 with Our Pathetic Age -a double LP featuring De La Soul (performing “Rocket Fuel” together on Jimmy Kimmel Live), Nas, Run the Jewels, Pusha T, Inspectah Deck and Ghostface among others.
