Deadmau5 at Nassau Coliseum- Why You Need To Be There

Nassau Coliseum is the place to be this New Year’s Eve. Fans throughout the Tri-State area are flocking to Uniondale, Long Island for one of the most well known performers in EDM. Deadmau5 (Canadian-native Joel Zimmerman) is making a rare stop on the East Coast to ring in the New Year, and his popularity continues to grow despite a constantly shrinking tour schedule. The last time the mau5 visited New York was in 2011, where he performed for a full-capacity audience six nights in a row. You read that correctly- five of the six 2011 tour dates at Roseland Ballroom completely sold out with the sixth night nearly full, and New York was left to wait patiently for his return. I attended the Wednesday and Friday shows which were both notoriously difficult to get into, and in addition to two amazing sets that featured all of his hits, the supporting lineup was phenomenal. Deadmau5 brought along some of his label’s best talent (see: Mau5trap Records) and for a modest ticket price fans were able to witness a show for the ages- Excision and Feed Me opened both nights, and both artists normally sell out their own headlining tours in a matter of days. Needless to say, it was quite the experience.

Deadmau5 is arriving in full force with a slew of new productions that he tested at Veld while performing for his hometown audience in Toronto.

Although his productions span back over a decade, the newest tracks still feature a sound that is undeniably Deadmau5, and the fan’s wishes have been fulfilled. After a long period of ambient sound experimentation Mr. Zimmerman released a handful of tracks on Soundcloud that quickly brought him back into the spotlight. Tickets for New Years Eve are notoriously difficult to find, not only because of the talent but because Nasseau Coliseum has an extremely limited capacity for general admission on the floor, which is where everyone wants to be! Luckily we have an awesome jampaign that will hook up some lucky fans with floor seats! Check out the page, get promoting, invite your friends, and maybe we will see you there!
