NERO TO SUPPORT MADONNA ON HER NORTH AMERICAN “MDNA TOUR” THIS FALL

 

BRITAIN’S PREMIERE DUBSTEP DUO ALSO SET TO APPEAR AT LOLLAPALOOZA, HARD SUMMER LA, AND ON THE IDENTITY FESTIVAL

 

DEBUT ALBUM, WELCOME REALITY, OUT NOW ON CHERRYTREE/INTERSCOPE RECORDS

 

June 4, 2012 — Santa Monica, CA — London’s premiere dubstep duo NERO is pleased to announce that they will join one of the biggest tours of the fall: Madonna’s MDNA Tour. Nero, which is British-born producers, remixers, DJs, and artists Dan Stephens and Joe Ray, will open for The Material Girl on the North American leg of her eagerly anticipated tour in support of her most recent album, MDNA on select dates including New York’s Madison Square Garden, and Miami’s American Airlines Arena. Nero will open the show with a DJ set, featuring live vocals from Alana. 

 

Nero recently appeared at Coachella, Sasquatch, and the Electric Daisy Carnival NYC festivals and is also set to perform several shows on this summer’s IDentity Festival, as well as at Lollapalooza in Chicago and Hard Summer Los Angeles in August. Please see below for all of Nero’s upcoming tour dates.  

 

Nero has been touring all year in support of their debut album Welcome Reality, which was released by Cherrytree/Interscope Records in December to rave reviews from Spin, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Entertainment Weekly, and Billboard. With its thunderous bass, hail of house rhythms, lightning flashes of rave synths, and showers of guitar, the album “pulls dubstep toward the arena-pop spotlight without leaving its shadows behind,” as the New York Times put it in its review, while Billboard noted that Nero “comes off like a dubstep-powered pop band.”

 

Released in the U.K. in August 2011, Welcome Reality debuted at No. 1 and rapidly earned gold status, fueled by its singles “Innocence,” Guilt,” “Promises” (which also stormed straight to the top of the UK charts) and “Me and You,” which was the most played record on Radio 1 for three weeks in a row and is the first U.S. single from the album. The official video for the song has racked up more than 13 million plays on YouTube. Watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=llDikI2hTtk
