Deadmau5's latest live tour, dubbed 'Lots of shows in a row', is in full swing — with the controversial Canadian producer heading to Seattle this weekend — and judging by the photos we've secured from his New York shows, it looks like his best show, in both scale and scope, yet.
Deadmau5 will perform at an Insomniac warehouse show later this month, Saturday 29th April, alongside ongoing dates as part of his Lots Of Shows In A Row tour.
It's the first time in five years that the US-based DJ has played an Insomniac party and will feature support sets from Brazilian techno star ANNA and mau5trap-signed act, Monstergetdown.

It was the fourth show in a row at the famous NYC venue for the EDM producer and also happened to coincide with April Fool’s Day (1st April 2017), with the DJ altering the show’s setlist to include a spin of Rick Astley’s ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’.
The late ‘80s classic was sandwiched in between renditions of Deadmau5’s own anthemic track ‘Ghosts ‘n Stuff’ — you can watch a video of the prank below.
