Pete Tong Announces US Tour Dates kicks Off October 13 Hitting San Diego, Miami, Las Vegas, NYC, Chicago, LA and more

Pete Tong is unquestionably one of dance music’s biggest and most respected names. Across all corners of the globe his name is synonymous with the very best cutting edge electronic music and talent. His club and festival gigs from Ibiza to London, Brazil to Barcelona have become the stuff of legend. In addition Pete Tong hosts the world’s most listened to electronic music radio shows on BBC Radio One, where this year he celebrated 20 years at the station with a ground breaking 12 hour take-over of the station.

2011 has been an exceptionally busy year for Pete Tong, he kick-started his Las Vegas residency at Encore Beach Club in May, assembled Luciano, Richie Hawtin, Joris Voorn and more for his annual Pete’s Pool Party in Miami, headlined Glastonbury’s dance tent, curated his own tent at the world-famous (and the UK’s coolest) Bestival festival, and continued his incredible run in Ibiza by taking his ‘All Gone’ residency to Pacha. Amongst all this he even found time to co-host a special electronic edition of NPR’s flagship music program ‘All Songs Considered’, re-launch his iconic FFRR label at Warner Music, mix and release two CD compilations, and launch the All Gone App. Truly a global ambassador, it’s clear that Pete Tong is anything but complacent, continuing to push boundaries and explore new ground for electronic music, even after twenty years at the very top.

In October Pete Tong will bring his unique style of party to America for a two week tour, that will see him hit eight of America’s biggest dance markets. The tour comes after he helped close-out the US ampitheater touring IDentity festival this summer. From hands-in-the-air anthems, to yet-to-be released limited edition white label bombs, the Pete Tong tour will treat America to an unprecedented snap-shot of the music that will set the agenda for the next 12 months, mixed by one of the most revered DJs in the world.

October 13 – San Diego, Voyeur

October 15 – Denver, Beta
October 17 – Las Vegas, XS

HARLEY-DAVIDSON PRESENTS: ART OF REBELLION New York Art Show, One Night Only – Saturday October 17 At LA.Venue In Chelsea, NYC

HARLEY-DAVIDSON PRESENTS: ART OF REBELLION New York Art Show, One Night Only – Saturday October 17 At LA.Venue In Chelsea, NYC

ART OF REBELLION: Art meets motorcycle culture…

The ART OF REBELLION brings together 10 U.S. artists hand-picked by Harley-Davidson®–icons and emerging artists who are world-renowned in both the music and art worlds for their rock poster artwork. Their work will be on display at the ART OF REBELLION show Saturday, October 17 at La.VENUE (608 W. 28th Street New York, NY). The artists chosen for the event in the West Chelsea gallery district are Art Chantry, Brian Ewing, Derek Hess, Dirty Donny, Frank Kozik, Harpoon, John Van Hamersveld, Lindsey Kuhn, Tara McPherson and The Pizz.

“These artists represent the rebellious spirit that we very much connect with-mixing old with new, defying boundaries and creating fresh individual perspectives,” said Susanne Dawursk, Harley-Davidson director of Outreach Marketing. “The Art Of Rebellion is a must-see event that showcases the artists and supports the art community at large.”

Harley-Davidson created ART OF REBELLION as a forum for artists to showcase their work and interact with other artists, galleries and media, as well as give them the needed opportunity and exposure to help further their careers and leverage their credibility in the art scene. For the show, each artist will paint one Harley-Davidson Iron 883TM gas tank and they will also sell signature art posters at the show. The Iron 883–part of the Harley-Davidson’s Dark Custom line which fuses minimalist design with a vintage feel–evokes the adventurous spirit of the dawn of the 60’s motorcycle rebellion.

A portion of the proceeds from poster and tank sales will go to CUE Art Foundation. CUE Art Foundation is a 501(c) (3) non-profit forum for contemporary art that gives artists, students, scholars and art professionals resources at many stages of their careers and creative lives (http://www.cueartfoundation.org/).
