Pete Tong Announces North American Tour Dates

Pete Tong Announces North American Tour Dates

The voice of world dance music and DJ icon Pete Tong has announced that he will be embarking on a North American tour in late October, with stops all across the United States and Mexico. Tong, the host of BBC Radio’s most listened to music shows, the Essential Selection and Essential Mix, will bid farewell to his summer Wonderland residency at Eden in Ibiza, before kicking off his tour at Los Angeles’ yearly Monster Massive.

As a DJ Pete Tong needs little introduction, he has graced the decks of the best festivals and clubs around the world for over 15 years. In the studio Tong has mixed some of the biggest compilations and supervised and scored a number cult films (It’s All Gone Pete Tong, 24 Hour Party People & Harry Brown). A global ambassador for dance music and an authentic trendsetter and tastemaker, Tong has managed to straddle the fine line between mainstream attention and cutting edge credibility. He continues to champion new music and the very best and brightest emerging talents via his weekly broadcasts and club gigs.

Pete has had an outstanding 2010, selling out stops around the world including tours of Australia, the UK, and the United States, where Pete hosted his world-famous pool party at the Winter Music Conference in Miami, Florida. Festivalgoers in Barcelona also witnessed a groundbreaking, critically acclaimed set by Pete at the Sonar Festival back in June, where he played “by day” alongside dance music’s greatest names.

Pete is now halfway through the third season of his Wonderland Ibiza residency, where his innovation and energy in the booth is matched by top-notch production and revolutionary line-ups. Over the last three seasons Tong has hosted the liked of Luciano, Lady GaGa, Fatboy Slim, Faithless, Groove Armada and deadmau5. This year was no different with the iconic Bryan Ferry selling out Wonderland’s opening night.

Pete Tong has made the best tunes of the Ibizan summer available in the form of a ‘Wonderland’ mix CD that is available for US buyers via Beatport. The mix encompasses the entire spectrum of dance music, featuring tracks from producers and DJs including John Digweed, Nic Fancuilli, Bryan Ferry, as well as some originals and remixes from Pete Tong and Paul Rogers thrown in for good measure.

This May Tong also hosted the third annual International Music Summit in Ibiza, of which he is a co-founder. World-class artists and industry heads came together for a truly successful and through-provoking meeting of the minds, with participants including David Guetta, Richie Hawtin, Erick Morillo, Mike Pickering, Mark Ronson, Resident Advisor and more.

Not content with his BBC Radio duties, hosting a weekly Ibiza residency and touring all over the world, Tong has also been able to hit the studio in 2010 with production partner Paul Rogers to produce the 3-track EP titled ‘What?’ on Mark Knight’s Toolroom Records. Tong also collaborated with Dave Spoon to release ‘Muchness’ on Steve Angello’s Size Records.
