With just over a week to go until his long awaited UK Tour, Deadmau5 revealed his highly anticipated new live show at last weekend’s historic Coachella festival.
The debut production was captured by many, including a crowd of over 15,000 people, plus a gathering of celebrity fans.
Deadmau5’s brand new L.E.D Mau5head was finally unveiled and his new tracks had the adoring crowd in a frenzy of giant mouse head-induced bliss.
Lucky fans attending the UK Tour dates will be the first to experience the new live show on UK soil (DIY Mau5heads are welcome). The show promises to be an amazing gig experience as well as a captivating visual spectacle.
