What started as cryptic Facebook messages last weekend has now become one of the most unique tour announcements in Dance history: Hardwell and his team revealed dates for a North American Arena tour last Thursday on New York’s Times Square. Taking over 5 of the biggest video screens, the no. 1 DJ let the world officially know about the October / November gigs.

Fans can sign up for presale tickets here on Thursday, June 19th. Otherwise, tickets go on sale through Live Nation on June 27th in the US and on July 4th in Canada.

Hardwell also interviewed some New York citizens who didn’t know who he is. Funny stuff. Check it out here!
